Hearts for Hospice UPDATED

My Hearts for Hospice Pieces

I've finished my third heart for the Hearts for Hospice program, which is run by the Greater Kansas City chapter of the American Needlepoint Guild.  You can see them above before I wrapped each in tissue paper and put the packets into a sealable plastic bag before putting them in an envelope and taking them to the post office.

I'll be mailing them to Sue who collects the hearts and sends them for finishing next week.  I enjoyed doing these and I hope they bring some solace to those with family and friends who are gravely ill.

You can see more about the project here.  It's a great way to share our love of stitching with others and use up that stash we all have.

UPDATE:  The National Academy of Needle Artists (NAN) has added free Hearts for Hospice charts to their website. is also supporting this program through their shops in Charleston and Raleigh.
