Well, here it is February of 2022, and I just recently discovered this heartwarming project. I made two hearts for each of my grandchildren with a printout of the meaning and how-to and sent them for Valentine's Day. They can leave them about when they go on walks and hikes. I've left a couple myself, and my DH did too. I'm looking forward to making more. I think I will also tuck them into Christmas cards to friends with instructions about what to do with them. They're also good for just a bit of scrap-busting, including little bits of batting.

KalamaQuilts ~ I don't worry about our pacific northwest weather. The hearts won't be ruined by wet weather, and I printed the cards out and sealed them with plastic tape. I think they will survive fine until they are found.

I've made a few but am waiting for the weather to improve before I put them out and about. It's a great use for strings and orphans. Fun to make!

Iíve heard about small pieced hearts (quilted) being given to friends, etc. as prayer hearts. Iím not especially religious but I think this is a wonderful thing to do - people can carry these in their pockets, purses, etc. and every time they felt it, it would remind them to give a small prayer.

I love this idea - I have also enjoyed the feel-goodness of the painted rocks and community libraries and pantries (free sharing stations - take what you need, leave what you can). We need all the random acts of kindness we can get in our world today... Thanks so much for sharing!

I have hear this concept before and it sounds like a great way to share love and a note of kindness. Thanks for sharing.

I just discovered this sweet idea. I checked the website and no “found hearts” have been reported in my area. I think I’ll do this also.
Thanks for sharing.
