Secret Stitching Sweethearts 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 received 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):



So please hop over to the blogs and leave a nice comment.  Each participant will be trying to locate the photo they sent in and trying to find out who sent their's.

Here's some more love for you all, some great freebie designs from around the world!  I keep a list of freebie links on a special page on my blog so if you have any to add, please let me know.

Here's the first one all stitched up:



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


(there are 22 designs labelled Couer or Heart).

I had a very exciting Happy Dance on Friday which I will being showing off tomorrow for Gifted Gorgeousness!  Just to keep you waiting.  However I will show you the beginning of the next letter:

Stitched on 32 count Oceanic Fantasia by Crafty Kitten

And if you hop over the Kaye's Friday Frolics blog you can see a sneak peek of the finish!

*****************************************

Finally, I remember reading someone's resolutions for the year in January and one of them was to "Learn Blackwork".  Was it you?  If so, then please leave a comment because I've been wracking my brains who it was and I have a very nice chart!

to answer on your question about Mothers day, where I live we celebrate it the second Sunday of May, but there is one part of the country that celebrates it in August aswell.
