Happiness is cross stitching blog

Tea if you please and a giveaway!

Hi everyone I hope you are all well!
I know its been a while since I last posted but I have been quite busy of late doing other things, although I have still been cross stitching.  I still have quite a few Christmas ornaments that need finishing and I have been stitching a gift for a friend, I will be sending that in the mail this week and when it arrives I will post pictures.
I just loved this free pattern from The Sampler Girl, I have stitched it a couple of times now, once for
my giveaway in July and this one that I decided to make for myself, I am going to hang it on the door in the kitchen where my tea is stored. Of course I had to make a fimo clay teapot to top it off!
I so love my new teaset, I bought it in the summertime, the strawberries are so cute and I just love the colour, I really love strawberry designs on anything but I particularly love it on cross stitch.
Now for some news of a beautiful giveaway over at Rebecca’s blog – Gathering of Thoughts here  , trust me if you like the romantic theme you will love this blog. Rebecca creates the most beautiful things,  on this occasion she is giving away this gorgeous Christmas pillow in the picture below, go over to her blog and check it out, you won’t be disappointed.Oh I so want to win this!
I am hoping to plan a giveaway for Christmas if I get chance, so keep a look out for that.
I have also sent out this week my last two exchanges for Christmas, one for The Year Long Prairie Schooler Exchange Group and one for the Hooked on Exchanging Group.
Thankyou for all of your lovely comments,  I hope you have a happy stitchy week!
Come back soon!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    Lynn hi
    You are definitely one very busy bee :>)

    Your stitched version of Tanya's freebie is absolutely gorgeous made even more special by the lovely little teapot perched prettily on the top. I've stitched it up too and made it into a little tray with tie up corners. It's very pretty for displaying fruity teabags in :>)

    Talking of fruity, that's just what your lovely tea set is. That design is so fresh and I can tell from here that the china is really delicate. I love strawberries too, in absolutely everything.
    Warm wishes Angela

    Hi, I didn't have your e-mail address; but wanted to let you know that the ornament you made for me made it safely to me today, and I just love it! That was one of the ornaments that I had marked to stitch for myself, but never got around to it. You could not have selected a better design for me. Your stitching and finishing is just absolutely gorgeous, and I just love it!

    Thank you so much! Margaret
