Happiness is cross stitching blog

My exchange to Mylene

Mylene and I decided to do an exchange between ourselves and this is what I made.I sent it sooner than expected as I wanted to surprise her, I know I succeeded because she was thrilled when the envelope arrived. We did decide on a no goodies exchange but I could not resist making a few extra’s!
I thoroughly enjoyed making the felt pieces as they are so easy to stitch.

Pincushion and hanging heart ornament designed by myself Cross stitch pattern for pinkeep

Just scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will find the letters, you may
also love the pattern for the large project – so be warned! I am going to stitch it myself when
I get chance!
