' Hearts on a String Garland - Sisters, What!

Hearts on a String Garland

As history would have it, V-day and I don't really care much for each other. No fault of anyone, just bad luck and too much pink and red . I don't generally hate pink or red, I just can't stand the over abundance amount that is produced during the holiday. 
With that being said, I decided that this year, V-day and I are going to try again and start out fresh. 
Of course, terms were set and contracts were consciously signed.
1. Limited red and pink
2. Other colors must be equally included. After all, why can't love be represented with purple or blue (after all we do have blue blood running through our veins)
3. Nothing too lovey-dovey-mushiness
Thus, this was how my heart garland came to be under those strict terms. I used old scraps and didn't pick fabric out based on the usual V-day standards. I must say, I'm quite happy with my garland and when I look at it,  I don't feel the least bit hostile towards V-day.
