Happiness is cross stitching blog

My trip to Paris and latest stitching.

Hi everyone, I had a lovely time in Paris and thought I would show you some photographs from my little trip, together with Cindy F’s birthday gift and Wendy’s blog award. I have also posted all of my gifts from my anniversary giveaway, so all winners expect your gifts anytime soon!
The Palace Opera was built under the orders of Napolean III and finished in 1875
This was a beautiful building inside!
I just loved this dress.
We then visited a museum that had some beautiful objects on display, including 17th and 18th Century
furniture, pottery and perfume bottles.
This clock was made for Marie Antoinette
I thought this table was soooo beautiful, I know it is very over the top but I just love it!
An example of the beautiful architecture.
A bridge over the river Seine.
Of course, I did have to visit this wonderful tea shop for afternoon tea!
A visit to Angelina’s was really nice too!
Here is a needlebook that I stitched for Cindy’s birthday.
Stitching news
I am currently stiching for exchanges and I am making some gifts, I have also nearly finished my September stitching for the Christmas Challenge blog and I am getting organised with my Christmas stitching.
I have signed up for the Halloween Exchange on the Hooked on Exchanging blog,  I just love stitching halloween projects, they are so much fun to stitch.
I have been asked for finishing instructions on my projects, I have finished one but I have not had time to post it yet, but I will do soon!
I hope you enjoyed my photographs of Paris, thankyou for your visit, please call again!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    Oh Lynn your trip to Paris looks like it was amazing. Don't tell me you didn't visit any stitching shops?!? The cake just looks too good to eat. We have these tea shops in and around London called Cafe Valerie which sells cakes like that – much too hard to choose which one to eat. I haven't been in ages and I think it's time for a trip. I love love love what you stitched for sweet Cindy. Lots of Love Patti xxx

    Oh you are so making me miss French pastry. I spent lots of my youth in France visiting my grandparents and eating my way into pastry heaven. Great photos. Hopefully we will get back there some day.
