St Valentine's Stitching

I hope everyone is having a wonderful St. Valentine's Day.

Today I will not write too much, I will just show you pictures of my new St. Valentine designs.
I made a sewing set called "Hearts" which includes: a pincusion, a triangle scissors case, a scissors fob, a scissors stand and last but not least a biscornu.
If you are interested in buying any of my designs, contact me, please. My address is in my Profile. Thank you.
And I'd like to show you some more pictures of my daffodils. I have a variety of them in colors, sized and forms and love them all!
Some more little flowers in St. Valentine's colors:

In my previous post I showed a doll from my doll collection. My friend Passione vera, who is also interested in dolls, has a nice collection of lovely dolls, you can go and have a look at them here: . Today one more doll, Irene or Irishka (Иришка) in Russian, is sending her hello and love to her little friends in Italy.
Unfortunately, I do not know anything about this doll. But I love her even if she does not have any papers, she is pretty , isn't she?

I also want to thank Yana from for giving me an award. I am so sorry that I can't pass it to 5 bloggers because I love much more blogs - look at my list of favorite blogs! It would be too stressful to choose only 5 of them, so I am passing it to everyone!

I want to thank all my friends who left comments on my work, sent e-mails to me. Thank you very much for your kind words and precious advice. I really appreciate this!
I also want to say that in a few days my mother is having her 80-year anniversary, so the next post will be devoted to her. Stay tuned!
Happy Valentine's Day to everyone!

Beautiful stitching! And I love your daffodils. Did you see my earlier post of my pics of daffodils? I just love them. I think they just shout sunshine!

Yoyo said...

Beautiful sewing set, I love adding the scissors stand, unique. I'm jealous, we will not have daffodils for at least another month, sigh.

Nina said...

Beautiful collection!!
I also like your flowers ;)

Mylene said...

Понечка said...

Какой красивый комплект! Оля, какая ты терпеливая! Батончик какой интересный, первый раз такую прелесть вижу :) Здорово!

dany said...

Que de jolies broderies !
Je t'embrasse et te souhaite un bon dimanche

Олечка, ну ты не перстаёшь удивлять! Такой чудесный наборчик сделала! Знаешь, а мне очень понравилось твоё решение needleroll - закрыть его пуговкой. Так славно получилось! Куколки ваши со Светланой Васильевной возвращают в детство....правда, у меня не было кукол, один старый пупс, доставшийся мне от старшей сестры, но...эх, не доиграла я, наверно :о))).
Но вот чудеса природы и разных климатических зон! У нас уже тоже иногда можно найти один-два крокуса, тюльпанчик, одинокий нарцисс. Но до такого цыветения ещё далеко, конечно. Спасибо за весеннее настроение! И с прошедшим тебя праздником!

I wish you lot of success with this new Valentine set, it is so lovely ! I love Daffodils, it make such a spring colors in the gardens !

Brigitte said...

What a beautiful sewing set! And everything so beautifully finsihed!

I can't believe that there are daffodils where you live. That's spring. Incredible for me as we were having snow every morning the past week. Enjoy your wonderful flowers.

Violette said...

Très joli, ton nécessaire de brodeuse... Ici il y a de la neige et les jonquilles n'ont pas encore montré le bout de leurs feuilles !
J'aime beaucoup ta poupée, je vais aller visiter le blog que tu indiques.
Bonne fin de dimanche

Gorgeous stitching as usual!

And I love that beautiful doll. I'm a sucker for gorgeous dolls like that.

Hope your Valentine's Day was the sweetest!

Cindy F. said...

That is wonderful:)

siesta said...

Совершенно элегантный набор!! Комплименты!!

Ванечка зарделся, велел сватов засылать!!! Предлагает Иришке свою руку и сердце!! Обещает выполнять любой её каприз безоговорочно 3 года, 3 месяца и 3 дня!! Ждёт ответа и ногти покусывает нервенно :)))

Carla said...

Some valentine'set, huh, Olenka! I loved every piece of it. This was a colorful and beautiful post, with your nice handwork, the daffodils (I just love them!) and the pretty doll. Daffodils aren't easy to have here in Brazil. They grow just at some controlled environment. Fortunately, cross stitch can "grow" everywhere, in spite of the climate.

Now, I'll try (with some Google translator help, of course. *lol*) something in Russian, like you tryed in Portuguese:

Поздравляем с вашей матерью в 80 лет! Это очень красивый возраст!

I hope it made some sense... With online translators, we never know... hahaha!

All things beautiful said...
