Hearts and Hands for Sendai

I finished my quilt square for Hearts and Hands for Sendai.
A dragonfly for friendship, hearts touching other hearts for the caring and love shown by strangers, and how one heart reaching out can touch many,  flowers for the promise of new beginnings.
Although I began with the idea of a CQ square, I ended up with more of an embellished, layered and applique'd square.
I shall mail it off as soon as the driveway is useable, as right now it is soft and muddy until the frost is out.

I hope you've been having a creative day.
Thanks for visiting.
Hugs from Suz
