Secret Stitching Sweetheart Blog Hop

Well, it is time for candy and hearts and dinner out, if you are into those sort of things. We are not and we generally stay home on Valentine's Day. But I do stitch a few things for Valentine's Day as the colors tend to be reds, pinks and whites which I love!

But the Secret Stitching Sweetheart Hop is the brainchild of Jo over at  Serendipitous Stitching        
We sent her a photo of something that would be nice to pop up in an email and then we are supposed to post the photo on our blog today. Then we are to hop over to her blog and try to guess who our Secret Stitching Sweetheart is. I am bad at guessing games, but I love this little pillow that showed up in my email:
That is such a lovely finish I am ashamed to show mine, but here it goes!
The above pattern is from The Scarlett House and the freebie is on on Facebook and Instagram. I took some time to FFO my piece and here it is:

 I put my pieces on fabric that I had. I now see why people match their threads to their finishing fabric....
 This little one is from  Heart in Hand
 And this one is from The Scarlett House The Scarlett House Facebook. I used beads in the letters...
 My brother-in-law had some clean sawdust that I used to fill the pillows.
 And now they sit on my mantle although I may move them to my basket after a few days...
I also have a ton of hearts that were designed by Gay Ann Rogers:
Now to go figure out who my Secret Stitching Sweetheart is... Have a great day!

Thanks for taking part in the Secret Stitching Sweetheart Blog Hop this year.

How funny that you received a design that you had stitched yourself! Great minds really do think alike.

Your Heart collection is just gorgeous.
