Secret Stitching Sweetheart Blog Hop

Hello Dear Reader,

Happy Valentine's Day!!!!


In the cross stitch world Jo of Serendipitous Stitching is well known for her blog hops! Each one is a chance for us to visit blogs we otherwise wouldn't know .....

For today's blog hop a bunch of us have sent Jo a photo of a piece of stitching suitable for a gift to our:

Secret Stitching Sweetheart

Jo has randomly sent those photos out amongst us for us to show on our blogs. The idea now is that we go visit everyone else to find our own piece of work and then let them know it is ours!

If you visit to Jo's blog HERE you can see who is taking part and see what everyone has been stitching!

This is the photo I've received:


I'm looking forward to discovering the owner of this very beautiful needle set!

So now, off we go to Jo's blog to see the list of those taking part. If you are new to cross stitching  you might find ideas there to make you want to start stitching.

Jo always tells us where her patterns are from, and, if you are looking from patterns you could look at some of the heart patterns she listed on this blog post - HERE.

If this is your first visit here I hope something catches your eye and that you will be back to visit again. Don't forget, if you don't say hello in the comments no-one knows you've been here! Tee hee!
But you do need a Google One account to be able to comment.



Next time I hope to show you the project I meant to share today, which was trickier to stitch than I thought, so unfortunately it wasn't finished in time for the blog hop!




Hope you are having a stitchy week!
Hugs,
Barbara xxx

Very early first visit, it's 6.47 and I haven't drink my cup of tea! It's not mine, lovely colors. I'd better like to travel around blogs but I'm living in 20 mn for work so I'll have to wait this evening. Hugs and kisses. xxx

A lovely way to make new blogging friends, the mysterious one who made the needlework set is very talented. Happy Valentine's Day, dear Barbara!

How fun it sounds to hop over to others' blogs and see all the pretties people have stitched. Love the needle set you have showcased; such tiny perfect stitching.
