"Heartprint" Giveaway 2020

While working on my last blog post, I had the bright idea of having a Giveaway every month in this new year.  I would call it a "heartprint" giveaway because I so loved the quote I used in that last post. 
As a reminder, I'm also showing it here:

"The fact is that when you do something from your heart, you leave a Heart print."
Alice Walker

I love that quote so much. Your comments were just dear and I appreciate each and every one!

Giving away something I made always appeals to me, so I decided right then and there that sharing something with you all would be a good thing to do all year.  I figure life is tense these days, so
we could each use a little ray of sunshine now and again....I can't send everyone I've chosen to give away two "Heartprints" per month.  I'm not sure what they will be,  but they will involve a bit of vintage quilt, a tiny bit of embroidery and whatever else I manage to think up.  No two will be exactly alike.

So, if you are interested, kindly leave a comment on this post.  If you left a comment on the last will count. You only have to comment on one post per month.
I will choose the  two monthly winners and announce them on the last post of each month.

"Heartprints" will be mailed to the winners by USPS.  I will need your mailing address.
For my email address, go to my blog profile and click on the word "email."

Just to have a couple of visuals on this post, I've included these photos of the 'nook' in my small kitchen.  There are hearts they exist in just about every room in my house. 
 That red heart in my ivy...has lived in many plants over the years.

And, there in the corner are more hearts.  My friend, Patsy, made that for me.  Hearts and beads that catch the light.  I call her creations "Heart Strings."  Sorry this so kitchen is small and this is the only window in it was a 'dark and rainy day.'

So...two heartprint winners per month.  You will need to comment each month if you remain interested all year long!  It's a kind of commitment...designed to do two things:
1.  Give twenty-four of you a small gift.
2.  Make me more disciplined and "in touch" with you, my readers.

until next time,
Bird Nest Cottage

It looks as if I may be the first to comment on your blog post about the heart prints. This is such a lovely idea of passing on the loving sentiments from one to another. Will you be restricting this to US only or worldwide? I live in the UK but would dearly like to join in by commenting. I have often wondered what to do with those tiny scraps of embroidery or single quilt blocks we all seem to accumulate. Good luck with this idea, it is bound to grow your readership.

I can't wait to see what you make. I love the idea of something 'new' made with something 'old'. I'm sure there will be 24 very happy people in 2020!
Your little nook looks very cozy.

I love your idea of heartprints, if you don't mind it's an idea that I'm going to steal for my penpal friends. I look forward to making something pretty for them and making it a surprise during the year. I would also love to receive a heartprint from you. I've followed your blog for a while and often save the ones that have such good hint and tips. Love your home, it looks like a lovely comfortable place to live. Kind regards Mandy xx

Such a pretty corner! I love seeing the light coming through the windows and showing off the hearts. Thanks for the inspiration.
