If you’re lucky enough to get a Valentine’s card today, well, good. Somebody loves you. Remember that.
If you aren’t, then one of the hearts in this picture is especially for you.
Update, 16th February: A number of people have asked me how I did this, whether it’s wicker, how long it took me to make, etc. Let me explain. I was trimming pages of a few books with my Christmas bookbinding present, the beautiful vertical plough that Martin got me. The bin was full of little strips of paper in cream and white. So I curled a few of them into a half-heart shape and photographed the result, then cut the picture, mirrored the appropriate bit, and pasted. The intricacy of the final result astonishes even me, and I did it.
Sorry to rob you of some of the magic, dear readers, but I can’t let you think I did something I didn’t.
