Happiness is cross stitching blog

Free halloween pattern, work in progress and a new pattern.

Hi everyone, I have plenty of stitching and creativity to show you this week, I have a free pattern for all my readers, progress photo’s on Rosie from Little House Needlework and my latest Christmas Cat design to add to my cross stitch pattern collection.
I have been busy with Halloween stitching this week, I have just sent off the Halloween Scissor fob to my partner in the Hooked on Exchanging Halloween exchange, I can’t show you that yet until my partner has received it, although I enjoyed stitching the scissor fob so much that I decided to make my halloween cat into a mini freebie to stitch as a scissor fob or mini hanging ornament.
I have completed the pattern in grey colours so that you can see the stitching lines etc but I am stitching mine on black fabric, I have finished stitching the pattern and I am going to trim the edge with black beads.
Here is the pattern, just click on the picture and print.
Here is my scissor fob, I am going to attach a handmade tassle and maybe a bright orange matching cord, hopefully I should have this ready for my next post.   
  If you wish you can purchase the matching halloween larger pattern, just email me in my profile.

Next up is  my progress  on Rosie, I love the way she is turning out, I can’t wait to get this framed. 
Last but not least my latest Christmas Cat design available, just email me from my profile.
Welcome to all of my new followers and thankyou to everyone who has commented, I appreciate all of your comments! 
Happy stitching, hope you enjoy the scissor fob freebie!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    Love all your work – that black cat is as cute as can be! Thanks for sharing it with us. I wonder if my eyes would let me stitch on black fabric??? I may need a magnifying glass!
