Happiness is cross stitching blog

A new Mirabilia cross stitch project.

Hi everyone, I usually like to have a large Mirabilia cross stitch project on the go that I like to take my time over, I have decided to stitch this Mirabilia design called Royal Holiday by Nora Corbett, the colours in this are really gorgeous!
I have not had time to do any stitching but I managed to set the fabric up on the frame all ready to start.
The Peacock cross stitch box (in the previous post )  is still a work in progress, hopefully I should make some progress on that over the next few weeks. 
There is still time to enter the Cross Stitch Book Giveaway in my previous post.
Thankyou for all of your comments, sorry I could not reply but be assured all the names have gone into a hat ready for the draw.
Until next time – Happy Stitching!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
Lynn B
