It's Valentine's Day and Jo is hosting a great blog hop!

She has sent everyone participating a photo to show on the blog and we are all visiting stitchers to find who get our Valentine picture.

Who is my Secret Stitching Sweetheart?

I received this mysterious photo, a cute and lovely bear,  I hope you'll come soon and reveal yourself.

You can visit Jo's blog here :

Happy Valentine Day! Have fun visiting blogs and looking for you sweetheart!

En ce jour de Saint Valentin, quel plaisir de visiter les blogs participant au Secret Stitching Sweetheart Blog Hop" de Jo - Serendipitous Stitching -  Je pars à la recherche du petit coeur brodé pour cette occasion et qui vient compléter une case de mon jeu de l'oie.

Il me faut également un petit complément d'article sur le thème du coeur, j'ai donc choisi notre expression "coeur d'artichaut" pour illustrer ce post. Un excellent légume que je réalise en feutrine pour la dînette de Capucine. Le tuto est de chez "elle a des ailes" et s'est révélé très efficace. Mon premier essai n'est pas si mal.

I'm always looking for some special idea to add to blog hop post, this time the connections between heart theme, valentine day and my actual WIP have led me to my felt DIY, a new vegetable was the right one today : artichoke.

Because, here we've got an expression "to have an artichoke heart" which means to fall in love easily or have many lovers, as giving your heart like each leaf of the vegetable.

I found a tuto here :
and this is my first attempt, not too bad!

Best ever sauce for artichoke, Mum's one : hard-boiled egg + pickle + oil + vinegar = mix it as a cream.
