Happiness is cross stitching blog

My exchange has arrived from Mylene!

Look what arrived in the post today from Mylene!
Thankyou so much Mylene for a lovely exchange, everything is beautifully stitched and finished, I am thrilled with both pieces. Mylene stitched the pillow and scissor fob in my favourite colours and also used one of my favourite designers – Prairie Schooler.
The stitching on these two pieces are perfect in every way, in fact Mylene could teach me a thing or two about finishing!I love these exchanges because I think we all learn how to improve our skills just by looking at how they are finished.

I have just started experimenting with polymer clay, I have made some roses and a couple of other little creations, I do think this will become another addiction of mine! I will post some pictures later in the week.
Happy stitching and thankyou for visiting.
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
