Secret Stitching Sweetheart 2019


Happy St. Valentine’s Day!

In honor of the day, Jo at Serendipitous Stitching has organized a Secret Stitching Sweetheart bloghop for us. Jo collects our Valentines and swaps them around for us and then we visit all the participants in order to see who received our picture. My Sweetheart stitched this beautiful bouquet!

Isn’t that lovely? The pastel flowers on the black are really striking and elegant! I wonder who stitched it!?

To enjoy more blog hopping be sure to return to Jo’s and may you all have a wonderful day!

All My Hearts!


I’m linking up with Jo from Serendipitous Stitching for February’s People’s Choice…the theme is Hearts!

My latest finish features Rhodes Hearts. This is one of Victoria Sampler’s “Biscornuments”

I’ve stitched a few hearts which I’ve shown in the past, here are some for Christmas:

I even have this felt applique one! “Someday” I will make the other 11 days in this kit of the 12 Days Of Christmas!

Here are some less Christmas-y hearts:

I remember how fun all these were to make! How nice to revisit all my hearts! Be sure to check out Jo’s post if you want to see more stitched up hearts! 🙂

2 Little Biscornus in Progress


I am making 2 little biscornus this month for some SALs I’m trying to participate in. First is one of The Victoria Sampler’s “Biscornuments” which has Rhodes Hearts on it. It will show up in honor of several SALvposts later this week. I tried to get it done today but I spent all afternoon making tassels and cording. I just need to assemble it but that will happen tomorrow.

Next I am making the little Holly Biscornu from JCS 2008 designed by Cherished Stitches. This one will be for the Xmas Ornies SAL. I need to finish stitching the design a second time for the reverse side and add the beads. I am using my own choices of fabric and floss for this one.

I have some other things I’ve been working on which you will get to see later this month as well. Stay tuned!
