Valentine Blog Hop Follow Up and Another Finish to Report

Yesterday was the fun Valentine Blog Hop. I found out Mary from Le Coeur Celtique is the one who stitched that beautiful heart shaped piece I shared. She does other beautiful projects too so head over to her blog to check it out.

I found my piece over at Ariadne from Greece! blog. I would like to share it here too. Here is the piece I did...
Valentine Freebie from SmallTownStitchin Blog
Stitched on 32ct lugana evenweave called Pink Waterfall
Thread from Gentle Art Sampler Thread called Hyacinth
Started and Finished Jan 20th.

It was a fun fast stitch. Only took me the one day to do. The fabric in the background is what I was planning to use last week when I got into my fight with the sewing machine. We still aren't talking but hopefully next time it will work out haha. My other finish is the February Snapshot design...
February Snapshot from Pine Mountain Designs
Stitched on 32ct Lambswool Evenweave
Threads are Suggested DMC
Started Feb 4th. Took 7 Days.
I'm so happy I found these fun designs. I enjoyed this one even though it took me a lot longer to stitch up than I thought it would. I love each little square that Pine Mountain has designed for these. Can't wait to work on the next one. Now I'm going to work on the Family Crest for a few days.

I also noticed with the Blog Hop post that I don't receive the comments to my email from a whole bunch of people! I don't know why this is happening. So I have changed my comments to need approval for now. I sure wish they would get this issue fixed. I hate missing a comment from someone who took time to comment on my blog.


  1. Thank you for the link to the freebie - I love it, especially in purple - my favourite colour!

  2. I love your Pine Mountain Designs finish.Thanks for the freebie link too.

  3. Adorable finishes Katie. My comments haven't gone to anybodys emails for years. Would you be willing to lend or sell me the snapshot charts when your done with them?


    1. Thank you. I knew yours didn't but I also noticed several others. I switched it to moderate comments and that didn't even help. I didn't get the email to allow your comment. So weird.

    2. Sorry missed answering your other message. I don't know what I'm going to do with them when I finish them. I will write your name down as interested. Let you know when I figure it out. I was hoping to trade for other monthly designs with someone.

    3. Hi Katie. I have tons of monthlys. Let me know what your interested in.


  4. Cute finish!! Hopefully, next time your sewing machine will be done with her me time and will join you happily:)

  5. Both finishes are lovely.
    I especially find those little birds in love simply adorable :)
    Have fun with the crest stitching, this is coming along really nicely too!

  6. Thanks for the link, it's a cute stitch!
    Love, love, love, your February!

  7. I hope that you can use your sewing machine now as the fabric you chose for your Valentine's piece is just perfect.
    Nice monthly finish.

  8. Gorgeous stitches! I love your February snapshot, it's just such a romantic design.

  9. Such beautiful Valentines! I'm going to miss seeing updates from your February Snapshot on Instagram. Lovely work! :)

  10. I love the Snapshot series too, such fun designs.
    If you choose to moderate comments you still don't get the emails BUT the comments will be "left behind" on your Dashboard as "awaiting moderation" after you've published everyone else's via the emails.
    I make sure I visit my "comments awaiting moderation" section every couple of days and scoop up the comments then.
    Hope this helps.

  11. February snapshop looks wonderful.
    I've met Mary in person at a meet up, she's lovely.

  12. Cute finish I hope you've made up with your sewing machine!
