Heart + Arrow Pin Cushion | Purl Soho

Every Valentine’s Day, my sweet twanging Southern grandmother used to recite to me:

“Up the Hickory, Down the Pine,
Won’t you be my Valentine?”

As a child, I would picture Cupid’s arrow, zipping around trees and through limbs, avoiding all obstacles to tag me with her love. After chanting this ditty, Amama would also remind me to treat every day like Valentine’s Day, to be sweet and to let your loved ones know you care. This was always followed by a big ol’ hug and a “Give me some suga’!“
