Happiness is cross stitching blog with tips, tutorials and free pattern.

My birthday gifts and work in progress on Little House Needleworks.

Hi everyone, it was my birthday yesterday (Saturday 2nd April) and I received these lovely patterns from members of my family, these included  Little House Needleworks, Country Cottage Needleworks and Sue Hillis Designs and I am really looking forward to starting them. I think my favourite is the Chocolate Shoppe,  I may start stitching that one over the next few days.
I loved this pattern, it has been on my wish list blog, my sister very kindly bought me this together with The Cafe pattern – thanks Sis!   
Here is my progress on Little House Neighbourhood, I managed to stitch the border and start the second panel by stitching the tree in the centre and the house roof on the right.
Other stitching news
I was hoping to finish another tutorial this week for my tutorials blog but I got busy with other things, I am hoping to get on with finishing the tutorial over the next week or so.
Welcome to my new followers, thankyou for the lovely comments, I really appreciate them all.
Happy stitching!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
Lynn B
