Happiness is cross stitching blog

Little House Neighbourhood progress

Hi everyone, I have not much to show you apart from progress on Little House Neighbourhood which I am really enjoying at the moment, this week I am hoping to stitch some of the border on the top and along the sides and then I can progress to the second part.   
Sorry about the photo, I seem to be having problems with the focus on my pics, mmmm I will have to look at my camera and see what I am doing wrong, my photo’s used to be clearer than this. I think I have accidentally clicked on a button on my camera and it has altered something?!!!! 
I have been sorting out my craft room and taking photographs for a tutorial that I will put on my finishing blog, hopefully next week. 
Have a happy stitchy week, until next time!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
Lynn B

    Lovely progress Lynn, such a pretty design. Thanks for your comment on my blog as well. I get my 40ct from Sew and So. They don't have a huge range of colours, but have all the main neutrals, and their prices are good. If you want to try it sometime I could send you a small cut if you wished?

    Your piece is looking really great. I understand how tricky those digital cameras can be. I often find my pictures are terrible. Of course, I never have been a very good photographer.

    Lovely progress Lynn. I think there is something so special about LHNs.

    Hi Lynn,

    Your LHN Neighbourhood continues to look
    wonderful with every bit of progress.
    You're like me and stitch the border a
    little bit at a time, along with the
    inner design. That way you don't have
    to count endless little crosses to see
    where you're at.

    I can well imagine the fun you must be
    having playing in your craft room,
    getting things in order and dreaming
    about projects yet to be crafted.

    I'm looking forward to seeing your next
    tutorial and learning something new.
