Christmas box exchange finally arrived at destination and a free pattern for you.

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year!
I was very pleased to finally hear from the moderator of the Hooked On Exchanging blog that my box had finally arrived at it’s destination, I was ever so worried that it had got lost in the post as I sent it on the 1st December.
I painted a little box and hand made some polymer clay roses and a red brooch to go inside the box with some pretty red ribbon.  I lined the box with white fabric and edged the inside with red cording.
The cross stitch pattern is my own design and is available at the bottom of this post for you to print.
Other stitching news
I have finished Little House Neighbourhood for my sister’s Christmas gift, I shall show pictures in my next post. I am really pleased with the way it turned out, I have framed it in a simple cherry frame and even though I say so myself it really looks lovely.
Hope you have a lovely New Year, until next time,
Happy Stitching!  

Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
Lynn B
