Happiness is cross stitching blog

Christmas Owl, Chandelier pattern and winner of my giveaway!

Hi everyone, I have been busy creating some more of my cross stitch designs, my latest one is a cute owl, followed by a shabby chic chandelier. ( Photos below ) 
But first I am going to announce the winner of my giveaway for the My Memories Suite Software:
The winner is Mouse from Tales of a Stitching Mouse blog here 
Congratulations Mouse, please email me and I will send you the details on how to claim your prize! 
And now for the patterns I have been busy designing this week.
I love anything shabby chic and wanted to stitch something unique for my craft room, I decided to design this pink chandelier. 

  I think the pink looks nice stitched on white, black or pale grey, I have chosen to stitch mine on white fabric, I think once this is framed in a shabby chic wood frame it will look perfect on my craft room wall.
Stitching news
I have signed up for the Halloween exchange and the Christmas Box exchange on the Hooked on Exchanging blog, I need to get thinking about what I will be stitching as  it is quite a while since I have signed up for any exchanges.
I have nearly finished Rosey from Little house Needleworks, I should have a progress picture to post next time.
Thankyou for all of your lovely comments and welcome to all of my new followers!
Happy stitching!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    I'm delighted to make your acquaintance. Your cross stitch is so even and beautiful. I'm excited to find your patterns but am determined to finish up what I have before I buy fore. That will give me an incentive.
