Happiness is cross stitching blog

My exchange to Glady’s

Hi everyone, here is the exchange I sent to Glady’s in our recent private exchange,
I designed the box myself, it is trimmed with Swarovski crystals and handmade cord using DMC thread 825.
You can visit Glady’s blog here.
The free pattern for the biscornu and pinkeep can be found here at Les Chroniques De Frimousse blog
Instructions showing how to make this biscornu can be found on my finishing tutorials blog here.
I am so pleased that Glady’s liked the exchange I made!
Happy Stitching everyone!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
Lynn B

    Unbelievable!! Absolutely amazing. Your box for Gladys really is breath taking. I love the scalloped edge and the elegance of the initial trimmed with the crystals. You have covered it beautifully and then popped into it two really special little extras. Everything you make has got your special magic touch.

    Hi Lynn,

    I've been a great admirer of you work for ages now and have taken a keen interest in your little cushion ornaments. It's such a pleasure to browse through your blog to look at all your wonderful creations!

    I'm trying to make a few for myself as Christmas tree decorations. I was wondering how you make the felt cushions and what wadding you use to fill them? I'd be so grateful if you could share your secret!

    Many thanks,
