Happiness is cross stitching blog

Karen has received my halloween exchange.

Here is the halloween exchange that I sent Karen from the Hooked on Exchanging group, I made a pinkeep and a needlebook together with some fimo clay pins, you can find inspiration from You Tube for polymer clay. The pattern is a freebie from Gazette 94 blog here , I stitched it 1 over 1 on linen using DMC threads and the pinkeep was stitched 2 over 2.
Have a happy stitchy day everyone, thankyou for all of your lovely comments!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    Lynn, could you please tell me from where you get the embellishments? Especially the small roses!! I am looking to order some online very soon through a friend who's coming to India in December.

    Akila, do you mean the pumpkin pin with the cream flower on the top and the boo pin?
    If so, I made them from fimo clay using kemper cutters, they are widely available on the internet.

    Hope this helps!

    You are so creative, Lynn. I love seeing all of your exchange pieces.

    BTW, where did you get the alphabet you use all the time? I'm looking to stitch some things for my PIF, and that alphabet is perfect. I looked through World's Largest Collection of Smalls for inspriation, and it was always your pieces that caught my eye.

    Lynn, hi,
    I 've just popped into your blog and to catch up on your news and seen you amazing Halloween exchange. What a wonderful package for someone to receive. I love the little stitchy witchy and the little extras were just the icing on the cake. The black clay witches hat is a real treat (and definitely not a trick :>)
    It's lovely.
    Warm wishes Angela

    That is beautiful. So wonderfully put together.
    I just visited Jill's blog and saw the birthday gift you put together for her. I must say it is outstanding. So beautifully done. The tiny teapot and teacup are just so dainty and perfect. Your finishing is wonderful!
