Secret Stitching Sweetheart...

Are you my Secret Stitching Sweetheart?????  Is this your stitching featured here????? If so, I am waiting for you...


Isn't this tag cute? I don't know the identity of the stitcher of this tag yet. What delicate stitching and beautiful threads it is stitched in! I would love to know what the stitch is called.  If you are my Secret Stitching Sweetheart that will be one question for you.

Happy Valentine's Day all!  I am busy hunting for my Secret Stitching Sweetheart.  I stitched special items especially for this special blog post.  Look out for this and this. I will reveal my projects once I find my which blog they are featured on.

My DH and I acknowledge Valentine's Day to each other but that's it...just a kiss alone. A kiss is enough for me. It's a symbol of our past, present and future. 

In Australia we usually only give Valentine's Day treats to our partners and not to our children. I changed it up this year and popped a paper heart with a message in Mary's lunch box. I treated my Jack to a special smile as he caught me looking proudly across at him.  I gave Tom the biggest sleepy cuddle as I carried him to his cot. 

Mary, Jack and Tom you keep me centred. You give me purpose. You make my life worth waking up for. You make me smile.  I hope they know the pride I have in them. I believe this photo oozes my Mummy love.
 
Thank you dear readers for your visits and beautiful messages...

You got a lovely picture of a great stiching, but it's not mine.

I found you through Jo, and now I'm a new follower of your blog and Pinterest, nice to meet you! xoxo

It's me, it's me!!! I'm your not-Secret-anymore Stitching Sweetheart!

This is the top of a bookmark I made for my hubby. It's stitched with Hand Dyed Fibers silk perle on gold metallic perforated paper! It is a simple satin stitch done in a flame pattern...bring your needle up, go over 4 threads and put your needle in. Then bring it up again one thread to the right and one thread up from where you brought it up before. Repeat 2 more times. Then, start going back down again. =) I hope that makes sense...I know it was a freebie and I can try and find it if not!
