Happiness is cross stitching blog

Christmas ornaments received.

 Hi everyone, I hope you are all nearly ready for Christmas!
Here are the christmas ornaments I made for two recent exchanges, the red one was for Margaret in the Hooked on Exchanging blog and the green one was for Pilar in the Year Long Prairie Schooler blog.
I have been asked how I do the fringing on my ornaments, over the next few weeks I will post pictures showing how to do it.   
Edited: You can now seea fringing tutorial in my next post here
Blog update and a mishap!
I have recently managed to change my blog to a three column blog, it has taken me absolutely ages to try and work out how to do this so I am thrilled I finally managed to do it, unfortunately I made a huge mistake whilst playing around with the codes, I accidentally deleted all the blogs I like to read. It has taken me ages to create this list of blogs I like to visit so I am really quite annoyed with myself, now I will have to try and find them all again! lol!!!
Stitching news.
I have sent a random act of kindness, when I receive news that it has arrived I shall post pictures. I have also completed all my exchanges for this year, I am still waiting to receive mine, but I am really looking forward to the post arriving everyday!
Have a happy stitchy week and thanks for the lovely comments!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    I love the 3 columns. I have thought about that but I've too afraid of losing stuff. Love your ornaments. Hope all is well with you.

    Both perfectly finished ornaments, Lynn.

    I love how you arrange your bolg into three colums but i am sooo afraid to do some changes on mine as i did try before and nearly lost everything.
    Glad to hear you were able to fix it except the list of blogs you follow.

    Your ornaments are absolutely gorgeous, as always. They have your distinctive touch and must be a joy for whoever is on the receiving end :>)
    The new look to your blog is fantastic and was definitely worth the work you spent on it.
    Warm wishes Angela

    What I find works for me when it comes to my blog links is I make sure that each of them I am following. So when I have to re-add them I just tell blogger to add all blogs I am following and blogger does the hard part. LOL

    Ornaments look great and so does your blog.
