Happiness is cross stitching blog

Work in progress

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well and doing lots of stitching!
I thought I would give you all a sneak preview of my recent works in progress, the photo above is a freebie pattern that can be found here, there are some beautiful photos of this pattern at this link here  where you will find beautiful completed works in this design, the work is truly inspiring. I spent too long checking out the gorgeous photos –  be warned they are addictive!  
Some of you may have already seen the box I made for my friend Hazel, well I decided to make one for myself as I could not resist the bright colours and the gorgeous fabric.
If you would like to see Hazels box and contents completed you can see the post here.
Stitching news.
I am hoping to stitch and finish a giveaway for the One World One Heart giveaway, please check back on my blog on the 30th January, I should have a giveaway ready by that date.
I have recently designed a free cross stitch pattern that I am just putting the finishing touches to, I have stitched the design so that you can get an idea what it looks like, hopefully that will be on my blog soon.
My new craft room 
I am getting a little more organised with my new craft room, the boxes I had stored there have now been cleared and I now have some more space in there to get myself a little organised, I may show you a progress photo soon!       
Happy stitching everyone.
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    Beautiful stitching as usual! I always enjoy seeing your work! I think you deserve to have your own box like Hazel's for sure. 😀

    I love the little freebies that you manage to find! This one is really cute. It certainly sounds like you're keeping busy. I'm trying to work on my craft room as well. Not enough time in the day though!

    That is a very pretty design and thanks for sharing the link with all the pictures in. I really like the blue and brown version I saw. I love my little box and you deserve one for yourself! The one world was a bit disappointing for me as I won several things but about 3 of them didn't turn up! Bit disappointing. I will be looking out for yours though. xx

    Hi Lynn! I've been sick with the flu. I just saw the comment you left me, and a came right over to take a peek. As usual your stitching is BEYOND BEAUTIFUL, and I'm loving your strawberries in the post below! You were so sweet to mention me. xo I can very easily get lost here for an entire day! Everything is so gorgeous! 😀 Paulette

    Lynn, it's awesome. Love the colours you have chosen for this.
    Thanks a lot for sharing the link. Am awed by the soo many different ways that one project can be finished into. And all so different from each other

    Wow, I love your colors and the way you have put it all together. I can hardly wait to see the finished project!
    Glad to hear the craft room is coming along nicely.
