Happiness is cross stitching blog

Sent my first exchange today

I have sent my first exchange today, I do hope it arrrives safely.

My son is studying for one semester at University in Wisconsin, USA, he went shopping with his girlfriend the other evening and they bought me the Just Cross Stitch Ornament Magazine, I am so looking forward to reading it.

I am currently stitching a mattress pincushion for the Hooked on Exchanges Too group, I did a practice one as I had never made one before, I will post a picture of it when I get a moment to spare.

Happy cross stitching!

Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    Hi Lynn,

    I know we’ve met on a Yahoo group because I remember you talking about the show! Where in Wisconsin is your son? I’m a Brit living just north of Chicago
