This necklace was inspired both by the heart pin tutorial here (http://www.purlbee.com/valentine-heart-pins/) and by those conversation heart candies that seem to colonize every grocery store and CVS in the U.S. in February.  Since I am physically incapable of making anything exactly by the directions, I used the tutorial as a jumping off point for my own Valentine's Day jewelry (I didn't even have the patience to print out the provided template, and just drew my own heart!).  The embroidered phrase was a given -- what conversation heart sentiment is more trite (or easier to write) than "be mine"?  I couldn't picture the resulting pendant on a chain, so then I had to make an entire necklace to go with it.  It seemed that a fiber necklace was the only way to go, perhaps with smaller red felt hearts scattered along it.  I wanted to use some cotton thread that I have on hand for crochet, but alas it was too thick to thread onto any of my needles.  After some experimentation, I decided to use the left over embroidery thread, and that worked like a charm.  Here is the result:

This is the first time I've made a necklace like this, so I am rather proud of it!
