Happiness is cross stitching blog

Ice Cream Sundae finished!

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well and doing lots of stitching!
Here is my completed Country Cottage Needlework – Ice Cream Sundae finish, it was such an easy stitch, I think I am going to be doing quite a few of these designs as I really enjoyed stitching this.
Don’t you think the colours are just yummy?
I have posted quite a few pictures for you to get a good close up view and get a real feel for the design.
Gosh, I could just eat some Ice Cream!
You can buy the pattern from Sew and So in England here
and here in America, just scroll down the pages and you will find the pattern.
Stitching news
It looks like my exchange to Yana has got lost in the post, I am sooooo disappointed. I am going to wait a couple more weeks to see if it finally arrives, if not I shall have to make another one, which is so annoying!
I have started another exchange, but this one is for a lady in England, I do not think I will be as worried when I send that, but I will be using recorded delivery!
Welcome to all of my new followers this week, I hope you enjoy your visits as much as I enjoy posting the photographs of my cross stitching.
Have a happy stitchy week, thankyou for your visit!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
Lynn B

    Love Ice Cream Sundae – the colors are just so gorgeous.
    Oh, it is so frustrating when an exchange is lost.
    I will keep my fingers crossed that it shows up.

    How you manage to make every single piece you stitch look heavenly is beyond me!!! But, you do, Lynn! :] What a darling tribute to a mom from a son, and back again. I love it. Sorry I missed your birthday, dear friend. A belated wish for a wonderful new year coming on for you.
