Happy Valentine's Day Secret Stitcing Blog Hop

Hi!  It's my first EVER Blog Hop!  I'm glad I chose Valentine's Day to be my first one!  I know a lot of folks say that Valentine's Day is just a money maker for card and gift companies, but hey....any day set aside to show love for others is a great idea in my book!



There is a list of people participating over on Jo Who Can't Think of a Clever Nickname's blog, Serendipitous Stitching.  You can click here to head over to her blog and follow the blog hop.  I have posted the picture of my secret stitching partner.  Now I will go over to Jo's and hop through the blogs to find the person who has my picture!  Should be a fun way to see what other folks have been stitching! 

Over the years I've shared this day with others who would otherwise be alone.  I don't consider it a day just for "lovers", so just go out and share the love you have and make someone's day brighter!  While my husband was deployed one year, I attended a Valentine's dinner with another lady whose husband was deployed.  I bought her a corsage and chocolates...and it was a lot of fun and it helped us not to miss our husbands so much on that day.  Life is what you choose to make it, so make it a good one!  

Happy Stitching!!

I agree with you - commercialized or not, I wouldn't want to waste a chance to share my love with others. Doesn't mean you can't do it every other day as well, either :) Y
YOu received a lovely picture, and the one you made is just as cute. I think I've seen it on someone's blog already!

Hi DJ!
Happy Valentine's Day!
Beautiful stitching from Lesley!
Nice to "meet" you, DJ, and wow, you have been busy!
What wonderful stitching! I was especially interested in Renouveau, and I'm not surprised you were entranced by that single motif ..... it looks fascinating!

What a beautiful Valentine from Lesley, and yours is lovely too!

Your Valentine's dinner with your friend sounds like a great idea. I treated my work colleagues to chocolates today to show my appreciation of them. It was a small gesture but brightened the mood in the office!

Thanks for taking part in the Valentine Hop this year. I'm glad your sweetheart has found you!
I quite agree with you about Valentine's Day not just being for lovers. This hop is the perfect chance to share our love for stitching and make new friends!
