Happiness is cross stitching blog

Tilda heart and Christmas in February!

Hi everyone, firstly I would like to say a big thankyou to everyone that has left a comment on my OWOH giveaway, it seems there are a lot of pink lovers out there.
The giveaway is open until the evening of the 16th February, the winner will be announced on the 17th, please see previous post to enter.
And now for another pink creation of mine – Pink Tilda Loveheart.
I have recently fallen in love with these beautiful Tilda dolls here, I think they are so cute, so I decided to make a tilda heart, I was inspired to make this after seeing lots of gorgeous tilda hearts out there  in blog land. If you would like to see the instructions showing how to make this heart just pop over to my cross stitch tutorials blog here 
I have also received two beautiful christmas ornaments, one from Edgar at The Blacksheeps Bit of the Web blog here (the first one that Edgar stitched got lost in the christmas post!)
Thankyou Edgar it is lovely!
And this lovely ornament from Carol, however I am unsure which is Carols blog?
Thankyou Carol it is really appreciated, I look forward to hanging them on my tree next year.
Welcome to all of my new followers, thankyou for your visits!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    It's great to see your talented hands at work again! I hope you are enjoying that new craft room of yours:)

    The heart is really lovely. Are you going to try your hand at one of the dolls?

    I have been spoiled by my friend in France. She made me a Tilda reindeer and a Tilda doll. I just love both of them.

    Have fun!!

    Although, not really a pink person, I think that heart is gorgeous.

    The pink is gorgeous but I'm seeing it in Christmas colours as well.
    Lovely ornaments from your exchange partners.

    Oh Lynn, your Tilda heart is sooo pretty! I never new of those dolls…they're so cute!…Love Edgar and Carol's ornaments too!
    Have a wonderfully stitchy kind of weekend!

    In answer to your question. Don't feel like you are only able to use Sizzix dies with your machine. Try searching for Quickutz, and Bosskut dies. They make some cute little flower shapes as well as lots of other sweet shapes. Trust me…anything will work! xo Paulette
