Happiness is cross stitching blog

A random act of kindness for Andrea

Hi everyone, I hope you are all fine and happy.
I have recently finished this random act of kindness for Andrea over at The Craft Room blog here  .
Andrea sent me a RAK last year, it was a beautiful pinkeep made in blue and trimmed in gorgeous ribbon. I was so thrilled with such a lovely gift, ever since that day I have always intended to make Andrea a surprise gift too- well here it is!
I designed the box and made it in pink because I knew Andrea liked this colour combination and also liked boxes. I made the little bottle cap pincushion to match, it is trimmed with swarovski crystals – of course!
There are more photos below.
You can see Andreas rak to me(click here,) just scroll down the page.

Thanks for stopping by, have a happy, stitchy day!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    Absolutely gorgeous Lynn. Love the little bottle cap thingy. Your finishing is always so perfect. I need lessons or something. Hope the builders aren't driving you too mad and that you can stitch a little.
    Lots of Love

    Lynn everything you stitch is so beautiful and really worth waiting for. What a true RAK made from the heart. So much time and care has gone into it. The box is amazing and such a wonderful place to store little treasures. No wonder Andrea is thrilled.

    You may be out of sight but you're not out of mind :>)
    Looking forward to when things quieten down for you both in the house and out :>)
    Warm wishes Angela xx

    Gorgeous, Lynn. I have a question ~ can you tell me how to best adhere a small flat piece of aida cloth to a piece of cardstock as a bookmark? I'm using scraps and adding monograms to them, going to fray the edges, but need to know what type of glue to use.

    Big TX Hugs,
