Happy Valentine's Day and welcome to the Secret Stitching Sweethearts Blog Hop. My annual chance to show some stitchy love to our fellow stitchers. Over the last month my inbox has been filled with various lovely stitched and crafted pieces on the theme of Love and Friendship. Then I sent out them to randomly allocated participants who will be showing their Valentines on their blogs today.
Please hop round and see if they have found their Secret Stitching Sweetheart yet. The following blogs are participating this year:
As the organiser of this Blog Hop I don't usually get a Secret Sweetheart for myself but this year two people sent in two photos! This one is a lovely biscornu, why not try guess who it is from before clicking on the photo to find out?
This one features one of the designs already sent out, see if you can spot it as you hop around the blogs, no clues for this one!
I haven't got any new hearts for this post unfortunately but here's a design I will be starting very soon as a SAL with Linda:
Finally, most people are aware that I run a number of Blog Hops throughout the year, five in total. Last year I launched the Five Hops Challenge, similar to the Five Peaks Challenge but with more stitching and fewer mountains.
We had a grand total of 11 mountaineers complete the challenge! The aim was to take part in OR comment on every single one of the Blog Hop. I appreciated that not everyone has stitching suitable for every hop which is why I allowed comments to count. So a big round of applause for our intrepid 11 in alphabetical order!
Thank you to everyone who takes part in all the events and SALs I organise, it wouldn't be so much fun without you all!
Like your new SAL you are going to start .
The hops look fun .
How nice to have one to display on your blog as well, it's a lovely little finish, although I didn't know who had stitched it. I'm happy I made the list and hope I can actually post for each one this year. :)
I'm so excited! Just to to work and nothing else to do but go through all of the blogs! I have to admit, this is just as exciting as the Easter Blog Hop and look forward to all of the others for this year :D
I have no clue who stitched that pretty heart ornament but can't wait to find out! The biscornu is GORGEOUS too!
Happy Valentines' Jo!
Another wonderful blog hop! I enjoy them so much. I found mine on display. Now just waiting on the stitcher who stitched the one on display at my blog to come forward. Have a great day!!
Thank you Jo for organising another great blog hop, I'm off to look at all the beautiful hearts now.
Well done to the 11 mountaineers
Oh I made it to the five peaks!Great!I am glad! Thank you for inspiring me to stitch and blog about it! Now off to the blog hopping!AriadnefromGreece!
Thank you for organize all the SALs and Blog Hop. I would like to make the all five this year, let's see if I can.
Fun blog hop, although I didn't participate it's fun to see what everyone received. I'm so glad you got some Valentine love too!
It was a great hop Jo. I'm sorry I didn't get a photo sent to you. I had planned to but life got in the way this month. All of the photos were lovely. Glad you got sent a couple too. RJ
I really enjoyed looking at all of the hearts. My favourite was the blue heart by Ariadne for Jeremiah's mum, I would never have thought of making a blue one but it is pretty and different so it stands out. x
Lovely finishes :)
Thanks for a great hop!
I love the beaded edging on that biscornu
Really looking forward to seeing The Queen of Hearts as you stitch her
I'm so sorry I couldn't participate this year! I had such a fun time last year!! It's always fun to take part in your challenges and hops. Thank you for making blogging fun! Lovely stitching you have posted on your blog! I hope you had a very Happy Valentine's Day! *Hugs*
Another fun hop~ The beading on that little biscornu looks like it took forever! I wonder who made it? It even looks like it might be done in the awesome variegated red floss.
Oh wow, I was one of the mountaineers! How neat! I think I'd fall under the commenters category though. Maybe I could just make this a year of secret stitching and ingredients for all the hops next year hah.
Nice new design, looking forward to watching that one grow.
I just finished hopping around - so many beautiful pictures again this year. And I'm so happy you got something to share as well :) Your Five SALs challenge last year was a lot of fun and I'm veryy glad and proud that I made it to the top(s) :D
I'm so glad you got to post something too, and a very pretty one too!
Your SAL with Linda looks like a fun one, enjoy!
Thanks again for hosting, Easter will be here before we know it.
