Random acts of kindess

I nearly forgot it was my month, thanks Miki for the heads up! 
 I've been scattered this month... I whipped up a HEARTS quilt, that I will be giving to my
 mother when she comes out of heart surgery on VALENTINES day!  
Of course I only thought of this Monday, and I leave Sunday for MN.
I figured it will be just the thing to perk her up... 

So sticking with that idea, Can you whip up a few SMALL HEARTS, 
random free pieced style, 
and make a mini Valentine for someone special?  
Give it to someone as a complete random act of kindess... 
(or even an AAQI quilt would be nice.)

( I repeat a  SMALL gift, not a whole quilt like I did... I will make another small one)

Who would least expect to get a little gift from you this month?  
It doesn't have to be given by Valentine's day, Since I am so late, 
but just make something sweet and surprise someone in the near future...

 Happy Valentine'sDay early!



  1. The fabrics you used are Sooo pretty. Your mom will love this one. ;)

  2. Thanks Beth! All pink and red hearts and one purple heart for bravery! ;-) I think she will love it!

  3. What a great idea! Valentine surprises are so good to give ...and to get!! Have a LOVE-ly time with Mom!!!
