Happiness is cross stitching blog

Christmas in June!

I have been thinking about Christmas over the last couple of weeks and decided to design a little pillow and this is how it turned out, it is quite small,  4.5cm x 4.5cm  square – green on one side and red on the other.
I stitched it using DMC threads 817 and 699 using Mill Hill gold beads for trimming, hopefully I should have the freebie cross stitch pattern on my blog sometime this week.

I have been buying some cross stitch patterns again from Little House Needlework and Country Cottage Needlework, I just love these patterns so much, and also some new linen fabric, I will show them on my next  post when they arrive! 
 Welcome to all of my new followers and thankyou everyone for the lovely comments on my teabag holder, it seems you quite like the tea themed projects, I think I need to design and stitch more of the same! 
Until next time, happy stitching!   
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
