Secret Stitching Sweetheart Blog Hop

Happy Valentine's Day to you all!  I hope that those of you in relationships got well treated today.

Over the last few weeks my email inbox had been receiving Hearts and Love in preparation for the Secret Stitching Sweetheart activity.  I have a lovely spreadsheet and each person has now been emailed a picture from a random participant.

At some point today they will post the picture they receive on their blog and wait for their Secret Stitching Sweetheart to reveal her identity by leaving a comment.

Here is the full list of participants (in no particular order):


Now usually this is one Blog Hop I have to sit out myself because I can hardly send myself a Secret photo!  But this year one participant sent two photos and asked me to choose one of them, which I did.  I kept the second for me!  Any guesses who sent me this lovely design?

It is a beautiful pillow design from The Sweetheart Tree which made me think it is perfect for my Secret Stitching Sweetheart Blog Hop!

Last year I included a list of Heart designs, so here it is again with a few additions!

And of course we must never forget the Patron Saint of Free design - Gazette 94!

(there are 21 designs labelled Couer or Heart).

Finally, who can remember these from the 1970s and 80s?
