Hearts for Christchurch is a wonderful article that is written by Iris Frank for American Quilter Magazine. It is about a collection of hearts sent from all over the world to an appeal that Evie Harris made in hopes that it would bring hope to the people that suffered losses during the Magnitude 6.3 earthquake in 2011.
Evie is a member of our Postmarkd'art group on line, and has a beautiful Heart herself.
She sent out a note to quilters, sewers, knitters etc. to send hearts, at the time she was not sure how she would use them, but was sure that the people affected by the Earth Quake needed to know people care and understand the pain.
Canterbury Museum, Christchurch, New Zealand, showcased an amazing gathering of these hearts, and more than 4,000 hand-crafted hearts arrived. I posted the simple hearts that I sent in an earlier blog, and must tell you, I received a very nice thank you from the family that now has a heart from Calif.
Evie is still receiving hearts. She is a true inspiration about what one person can do to bring so many people together.
There are blessings everywhere, take a moment in your day to notice them.
