Secret Stitching Sweethearts Blog Hop

Hello everyone! Happy Valentine's Day! Hope you do something really sweet and beautiful today and have a great time with the one you love!
Jo of Serendipitous Stitching organised a Secret Stitching Sweethearts Blog Hop this year again and I am taking part! I always need an initiative to stitch something out of my ordinary like Valentines LOL!
I received this beautiful Valentine's stitching photo in my e-mail inbox for the day! I really wonder who it is that made it! Come on reveal yourself!
I am not a cat person in fact I have a lovely dog but still cats are lovely to stitch and this is such a beautiful stitch!Thank you!
I will edit this post with my own Valentine's Day card when my recipient finds out who sent it to her!
So go visit Jo's blog and enjoy the blog hop every one and the day!
I couldn't leave you without a little Barca photo. That's my dog checking out on the flowers I received recently from my school colleagues at the theatre.

EDIT: As my secret stitching sweetheart revealed herself and I have revealed myself to my stitching sweetheart I can now edit this blog post.
The cats in love above were stitched by Leonore of Needle, pen & Sword. Thank you so very much, they are lovely!
I sent my photo to Jo and was received by Astrid of Dragon, stitches and stuff by Astrid. These are the things I stitched for Valentine's Day in order to take part in the blog hop!The card was a freebie from an old cross stitch magazine, the heart brooch was a freebie of Mollie Makes sent to me by my friend Juliana, and the floral sachet was again a freebie from a magazine.
Hubby remembered it is Saint Valentine's today so although we don't really celebrate it he brought me flowers and a lovely cake! That was quite a surprise!

Thank you love!
Hope everyone has a lovely day with the ones you love!

Hi Ariadne, visiting you from Jo’s Blog Hop!
That’s a lovely stitching piece .... I have an idea I might just know who stitched that, but I won’t spoil the surprise!
I’m not joining in this time but had to see what everyone has stitched for the Hop!
I’ll be back to see your stitching later.
Hugs,
Barbara xx

Those cats are adorable! I really need to stitch my two.
Thank you for your hearts that are on my blog, they are lovely! I was wondering if that was a sachet, very pretty.
Happy 💖 Day!
