Happiness is cross stitching blog

Yes I am still here!

Hi everyone, sorry I have not been blogging for a while, I have been way too busy, I have not had chance to do any stitching or blog reading but I did have a chance to put my name in the hat for a giveaway over on one of my favourite quilt blogs.
 Jenny from Elephantz blog was giving away this gorgeous stitched picture, I could not resist entering and hoping that I would be the lucky lady. 
I could not believe my eyes when I saw an email from Jenny saying I had won this gorgeous framed picture!    
Now if you want to see some gorgeous stitching then just pop along to Jenny’s blog here , you will be so glad you did because she is a very talented stitcher and quilter. Jenny also has a little shop selling her patterns and stitched gifts and everything she sells is beautiful!
Thankyou so much Jenny, I will treasure it always!
Here are lots of pictures, check out the gorgeous fabric and lacy card Jenny sent me too! 
Thanks Jenny for making my day!
Happy stitching everyone, I hope I can get some stitching done soon!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
Lynn B

    Lynn: You are so lucky, this is beautiful, I am wondering what she used to color in the lines, on some parts.
    The card is georgous.

    Dearest Lynn, I am chuffed that my stitchery finally found it's way across the pond to you!!

    Beautiful prize indeed you received. If I'm not mistaken the technique Jenny used achieved with crayons, first white then with other colors. Lots of ironing/pressing and I think freezer paper. It's a very time consuming art. Yes, you are lucky:)

    Congrats on the win, Lynn. It's nice, and I love the colors she chose for it. Well done, Jenny!!
