VALENTINE HEART PINS – The heart motif is universal. I always think of the Beatles song “All You Need is Love”. The tune is running through my head right now with the echoing chorus. I used to sing this song a lot. I collected fabric swatches from a fancy fabric store that sold fabrics to decorators. Little pieces of swatches would be attached by a safety pin and I would “pick” through the to find the swatch with the bit of design that I really liked. One year I started making these fabric heart pins. I kind of got carried away with embellishing them with tiny seed beads and ribbon roses. That year most of my friends received one as a gift because why should Valentines Day just be for lovers? These are the heart pins I have kept for myself. Happy Valentines Day to me & to you, too!
