Hearts: Mission Accomplished!

I've done it!  I've finished all the hearts for The Giving Heart's charity Christmas tree! 


Here are all 134 of my hand-made hearts!  Plus, my lovely reader Kay made and sent 10 hearts directly to the charity for a total of 144.  (Kay, I just heard from the director of The Giving Heart, and she is so thrilled to have received your package of hearts "all the way from England"!)


I just have to share a couple of gratuitous cat pictures with you...


Juniper has become quite a camera-hog after helping me choose the winner of  the recent surprise giveaway...

Anyhoo, the hearts filled up a large box...


...and I will be taking it to the post office momentarily!  The tree will be decorated and displayed all during December, along with trees from other charities in Richmond, Virginia.


This was a wonderful, fun project, and it couldn't have been more perfectly suited for me (because I love making hearts so much!) Thanks to all of you who offered compliments and words of encouragement along the way.
