Happiness is cross stitching blog with tips, tutorials and free pattern.

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.
