Happiness is cross stitching blog

Happy Holidays everyone!

To all of my blogging friends – I hope all of you had a lovely Christmas and are all looking forward to a
Happy New Year.
I thought I would show you most of my creations that I made in the year 2009, I have not included a couple of projects because I could not locate the photo’s, if there is one thing I have learned from blogging, it is to put my photo’s in folders that are a little more organised!   
I have made over 50 items and I have thoroughly enjoyed making all of them. I have stitched quite a few items for blogging friends and I am looking forward to stitching some more projects for personal exchanges that I have already planned in the New Year, and I am also hoping to concentrate on some of my large work in progress as I have been neglecting them lately.
Thankyou for all of your lovely comments throughout the year, I hope you will continue to enjoy visiting my blog in 2010!
See you in January!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
Lynn B

    Congratulations, Lynn, such great stitching you did this year!

    Wishing you as much success in the new year!

    Lynn you have had quite a stitching year. Everything you have made is just gorgeous but I think my most favorite thing you made is the Pins pinkeep made out of felt. It is so scrummy and I thank you for your tutorials – they are just the best.

    Could I ask you one thing though please? I know you live here in the U.K. like what I does (how is that for good English???) can you please tell me where you get the fat wadding from please? That's a few pleases in there so they should count for something.

    I wish you and your family a Happy, Healthy & Prosperous New Year and a lot more stitching time.

    Lots of Love

    I have to ask! How did you do the collage?

    Awesome projects from 2009 🙂

    What an amazing kaleidascope of images, Lynn. Your collage of stitched pieces is a joy to look through. You add more than stitches to every piece you make, you also add a part of yourself. So much care and thought goes into each piece. I loved your Halloween piece so much and thought it was my favourite until I saw the Jane Austen set :>) But, honestly everything especially the beautiful box of pinkeeps for your sister is unique and really gorgeous.
    Wishing you a New year full of health happiness and realised dreams and lots of great ideas for stitching, of course :>)
