With Gratitude for a New Heart

Look what came in the mail just before Christmas!!! The heart and cuff were created by Jackie of Dog Daisy Chains. I am such a huge fan of Jackie's work. Everything she creates has such a vibrant appeal to it.

Almost two years ago I purchased a lovely barrette from Jackie. I wear it when I am working at the art gallery and at quilt shows. I have even dyed clothing to match. This cuff goes beautifully with the barrette.

The heart was given as a gift to my mother who recently had heart trouble for about 6 months. The problem was corrected by 2 minor surgeries. The first surgery failed and there was a 3 month wait before they could do another. I am happy to report I have a brand new mom. She recovered quickly and has more energy than I have seen in years.

Jackie, thank you for the beautiful pieces! We will treasure your work.

Thank you Chris. I love the gift you sent me. I hung it in the front window over Christmas and I left it there. I usually have it in a different room but always where I can see it.

So pleased to hear that your Mom is so much better. I'm sure she will treasure the heart. Both pieces look lovely.

Definitely beautiful work, no wonder it has become a favorite.

Glad to hear your mom's heart troubles have been solved. I work as a Medical Transcriptionist for a cardiopulmonary dept and there are some dreadfully sick hearts out there. I have a long list of conditions I hope no one I love ever gets!
