Happiness is cross stitching blog

Valentine winner announced and a work in progress.

Hi everyone, I promised to announce the winner of my Valentine Giveaway today and the winner is…….
Elisa from Old Ragged Threads Blog here
Congratulations Elisa,  please leave me a comment with your email address and I will arrange to send the gift to you. 
I would like to thank everyone who left a comment.
I would also like to thank all the people who are now following my blog, I have hit over a 1000 followers this week and I am thrilled, I never imagined that so many people would be interested in my cross stitch. Talking of interest, you all seemed to like the cupcakes pattern I put on as a freebie, 900 people were referred from another site in one day just to see the pattern, I was so pleased.
 Here is the link to the site where you will find other free patterns. 
 I am currently designing another cupcake pattern, in fact I could probably end up with a whole series, I just so love cup cake designs!
And now for my current work in progress, it is a freebie from the Swappons blog here just click on the link and scroll down the page and click onto the PDF red square and you can download it. There are also lots of photos of finished works from people that have used the pattern, you will find lots of inspiration for the project in lots of different colours here. I am unsure how I am going to finish this one, I may do a box finishing. 
This is stitched one over one, it was surprisingly quick to stitch once I got started.   
Have a happy stitchy week, thankyou for your visits!      
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
Lynn B

    Hi I just started following you. I was admiring your beautiful work. I just finished my first piece that I made cording to go around it. Was not sure if you stitch it on or glue it on.
