Happiness is cross stitching blog

My partner Amy has received my Valentine exchange.

Amy my exchange partner for the Hooked on Exchanging Too group has received my pillow and scissor fob that I stitched for her, which means I can now show you the contents of the pale blue box in the previous post!
When the day of posting arrived I found it difficult to part with it, so of course, you guessed it, I made two, one for me and one for Amy! I made my scissor fob slightly different , I shall add more photo’s to this post tomorrow.
This is a Valentine freebie pattern that can be downloaded from here, there is quite a nice selection of free cross stitch patterns on this website.

    So pretty. I’m sure Amy loves it. I can see that it would be hard to part with; I would have stitched two too 🙂

    Lynn…that is so beautiful! What wonderful finishing. I’m just starting to doing all these creative finishes…slowly but surely. I don’t think there was all this when I was stitching 6 or 7 years ago…at least not on blogs. So inspiring! Thanks for the freebie link!

    Oh isn’t that pretty? I love how you did the ribbon around it. She’ll love it!

    Lynn, they are SO lovely! I love how you always add your own little embellishments, and personal touches to your stitchery. Also, how you arrange your finishes in your photographs. Very artistic! (and I understand see why you would stitch your own set too!) Well done!
