Happiness is cross stitching blog

Free cross stitch pattern for the Needlebook from previous post.

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well!
I would just like to thankyou for all of your encouraging comments I received about my boxed set in the last post, it really was a hit with everyone, you all seemed to love it. I would also love to welcome all of my new followers, thankyou so much for taking an interest in my work!
The pattern below is for the little matching pillow and is now available, please email me for a copy asking for the Pink and Green  Summer Pillow  so that I know which one you would like.
Needlebook pattern 
I have put together the Needlebook cross stitch grid for you to take if you wish – just click on the image  above and print it off, I am currently redoing the pattern for the needlebook to make it clearer.
The straight stitches are quite easy to do, but if you look at the photo below you will be able to see how they are made, just stitch some straight stitches next to each other to create the diamond shapes, but be careful when counting where to put the stitches as this can be quite tricky.
Happy stitching everyone, until next time.
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
Lynn B

    regarding the missing followers, it's happened before, when Google is doing updates, and that sort of stuff. They're missing on mu blog, too, and the bolgversary button is off, too.

    Can't help with why the followers disappear. Thank you for sharing your design with us and taking the time to do the tutorials.
