Valentine's day Heart Swap

I know New years just happen but the next major holiday is Valentine's. So, I have entered a embroidery heart swap for Valentine's Day. I don't know if I have been accepted yet. If I am, I think it should be great fun. I think I will do Russian embroidery ( needle punch).

Funny, I use to hate Valentine's Day. I worked in flower shops from the time I was ten till I was in my late 20's. So all Valentine's Day meant to me was a bunch of people who professed to be in love, but who forgot they loved someone 'till the last minute. Then they got mad at you for their lack of foresight.

Plus, if I did have a boy friend ( did not happen much on Valentine's), they always seemed to assume I didn't want flowers because I worked in a flower shop. Funny that people who work in flower shops tend to like flowers or they wouldn't be there. So, yep, I only got flowers once on Valentine's Day, and that was from a guy I wanted nothing to do with, so I gave them to my roommates. Since I have not been a florist for the last 9 years, I have learned to like Valentine's Day. There is no love for the holiday yet, no pun intended, but here is a sort of like involved.

I can see some good in it now; just not the commercial part of it. I still don't like males and females feeling like they have to give someone a gift or that person will be mad at them. What type of love is that? Not one I want. I like the old Valentines, hand made to show you loved and cared for someone. So, once again, I joined a group of people at MJF to make Valentines to trade; can't be store bought, so that should be fun. I will try to post them as I get them made and received.

A little about the two Valentines on this page. First of all, they are actually one; it is the front and back of one my Vavo and NoNo made for me in 1989. Vavo was the painter and designer; my NoNo ( my Italian grandfather) was the wood cutter.

Update: just got email; I get to do the swap and do Russian needle punch, even though the person in charge doesn't know what it is. She said as long as it looks nice she is fine with variety.


  1. LOL Sunshine! Of course you can do it! I love that we are getting more variety in our swaps! I'm still not sure what I'm going to do for mine yet. I've been collecting ideas though! I can't wait to see what you create!

  2. Hey flowers are really great...they mean so many things all at the same time...and they make perfect gifts not only on Valentines Day but on other occasions as well... and since you do love flowers and gifts i'd like to ask you to visit my blog sometime and check out my posts...do visit soon and have and share your thoughts as well!!!
