Happiness is cross stitching blog

Teatime, snowflake patterns and stitching news

This is just a quick post to let you know what I have been up to!
 It has been a while since I have done any blogging, I just cannot believe how quickly the time goes by! I went to the Knitting and Stitching Show at Harrogate a couple of weeks ago, my sister and I had a fun  day out, I bought a quilt kit that included the pattern and the fabric but goodness knows when I will get around to stitching it! lol  
My latest cross stitch patterns are these two tea patterns and the snowflake design, I like these because they are quick stitches and great for a beginner too, I have also designed a larger snowflake pattern that you can see below.
I have not much to show at the moment because I have been working on a box for the Hooked on Exchanging Too blog, I sent that last week, therefore I can only reveal the box once my partner has received the gift.  I am looking forward to showing it because I have designed the pattern myself and will be offering it as a freebie in the next post. 
Until next time…………  
here is the larger snowflake design, email me in my profile if you wish to purchase this.   
Happy stitching everyone, thankyou for all of the lovely comments and a big welcome to all of my new followers.  
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
Lynn B

    Beautiful designs, Lynn. The snowflake is so pretty and the tea one reminds me of Mrs. Potts from Beauty and the Beast. 🙂
