Valentine's Day was always a favorite Holiday when I was a child...picking out the box of Valentine's for school...signing each one, putting a little candy heart in the envelope before sealing it shut!

Making sure that you picked out just the right one for that special little boy you might have had a wee bit of a crush on....and being sure that you gave your closest friends the best ones out of the box!
I think most of us that create like using hearts in our work.....from a heart pillow made from an old tattered quilt or a little heart sewn to the chest of a cloth doll.....many antique cross stitch samplers have heart motifs scattered amongst their borders......hearts are just so fun to make...whether out of construction paper, fabric, or clay........

At morn, at noon, at night.
Thy form in fancy still I see.
In gloomy shade, in blaze of light.
My thoughts are ever turned to thee.
Bright as the stars my love shall shine.
If you will be my Valentine.
