Secret Stitching Sweetheart Blog Hop

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.  On Sunday 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:

💖                                💖
💖💖💖                     💖💖💖
💖Elfin Stitches💖      💖Guava Gems💖
💖💖                Dragon Stitches and Stuff                💖
💖       Life Outside the Washing Basket        💖
💖       Tales of a Stitching Mouse       💖
💖      Yellow Flower Meadow     💖
💖   A Patchwork of Crafts   💖
💖  Needle, Pen & Sword  💖
💖Simplicity in Beauty💖

As the organiser of the Hop I don't get a secret sweetheart but sometimes I still get some love!

One participant sent in two designs, so I kept one for myself!

My seasonal display is not as big or as varied as some people but I have a few pieces which come out in February: 

Finally, don't forget to leave some lovely comments on all the participating blogs, share the love 💖

What a lovely heart...whoever stitched it is a fabulous stitcher! I'm sorry I missed your email until it was too late. I would have participated, I'm living in my own little world these days. Lovely Valentine's display!
