Red Selvage Heart from Natima!


This lovely selvage heart ornament with hand embroidery and buttons was a gift from Natima, a quilter in Australia. Isn't it beautiful? I'm going to enjoy it year 'round in my quilt studio. Thank you again, Natima!
They're enjoying summertime right now, and she's showing great photos of their apricot harvest (and canning project) on her blog. Check it out: http://www.notjustnat.blogspot.com/.
