Secret Stitching Sweetheart

Hello everyone! In love or not in love today is Saint Valentine's Day worldwide and I hope you are celebrating!
Because one does not have to be only in love, one can simply love and share the love and love should always be celebrated in some way or another.
So today I am taking part in Jo's of  Serendipitous Stitching Secret Stitching Sweetheart blog hop.
Jo asked us to send her a photo of one of our stitched pieces with a theme of love, heart, Valentine, etc. Something appropriate for Saint Valentine's Day.
Then she matched us with someone else and we all have to blog about it.
So here is the photo I received.
I don't know who it is from. I will wait for a comment by that person to let me know.
It is a lovely stitched piece and in my favourite colour purple.All full of delicate detail.
Thank you my dear unknown friend.
When this is over I will edit the blog post and add the name of the sender as well as the photo of my own stitched piece too and who received it.
You can see all the blogs who took part in this here.
Thank you Jo for this lovely blog hop once again!
Edit: The stitcher of this lovely piece is Katie of Jeremiah's mom blog. Thank you so much Katie.
The person who received my Valentine's card was Leslie of the blog A snapshot of my life
And this is the card I sent her.

Happy Valentine's Day, Ariadne!
Beautiful stitching, in my favourite colours too!
Not mine though! Great idea to edit the blog later, I will be back to find out whose stitching it is!
Have a great day!

Christine said...

That's a pretty one

DJ said...

Happy Valentine's Day, Ariadne! What a lovely piece you were given to share! No, I'm not your secret sweetheart, but I've enjoy visiting your blog...and now I'm wanting to visit the places you've pictured here! The stitching on your Thea Gouverneur's piece is lovely, I'll be cheering you on as you work on finishing it this year!

Sweet stitch, love it in purple! The fabric is great with it.
Happy ❤ Day to all!

Justine said...

Happy Valentine's Day! That is a pretty stitch from your secret Valentine.

Katie said...

Well I'm hopping along to find my piece and guess what...I found it.

I really enjoyed stitching this up. It's a freebie available here...


I used a little piece of fabric I had in my stash called Pink Waterfall. It's a 32ct luguana evenweave. The thread is from Gentle Art Sampler Thread called Hyacinth. I was hoping to turn it into a decorative pillow but my sewing machine decided it didn't want to join in evidently so it will have to wait until we are getting along better. The fabric in the background will be the fabric I use to finish it

Happy Valentine's Day!!

Lesley said...

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Thanks for taking part in the Valentine Hop this year. I'm glad your sweetheart has found you!
I love the colours in this one.

Visiting you with the Blog Hop, this purple is perfect (too much red and rose!). Lovely stitching from Katie. xxx

I love purple, too, Ariadne, and Katie has done such a lovely job of this design for you. Happy Valentine's Day.

Still hopping along. I think this is the first stitched piece that I see the word Valentine. Lovely work from Katie. Have a Happy Valentine's Day.

What fun heart stitching!

Marie-Anne said...

What a nice idea it was for you to exchange photos of your stitching!
I liked yours very much, but also the one you received!
Just saw that you finished the book I sent you! Did you like it?

Brigitte said...

It's a wonderful Valentine stitching that Katie sent you. I also love the heart that you sent to Lesley. A great blog hop with lots to admire.

Very sweet!
I used to cross-stitch a lot but there just isn't enough space to store them, and my eyes are getting bad for job like this!
