I love Valentine's Day.
I love hearts.
I love... love!
Hearts as a design motif have
always made me happy.
From way back when in grammar
school when I used to draw hearts
all over my school books that were
wrapped in brown paper shopping bags.
This is a piece I made many years
ago with antique buttons and some
beads when my cousin was teaching
me how to do silk ribbon embroidery.
At the time I had 2 very young toddlers
and not much time for being crafty.
A number of years ago, I was with a
group of women and one of them was
getting married. She was talking about
themes for her wedding and said, "well
definitely no hearts, I don't like hearts."
It never occurred to me that someone
would dislike hearts...
Well, not me. I love them and use them
in my designs all the time.
And don't get me started on how
many heart shaped cookie cutters
So I can make these for the ones
