Happiness is cross stitching blog

Free snowman stitchery pattern and Father Christmas design

Hi everyone, I hope you are all looking forward to Christmas and getting lots of Christmas stitching done, I know I certainly am. Here is another design I have been stitching, it is a freebie stitchery from Jan Wilde of Mulberry Street stitching, you can find the pattern here. Thanks Jan!
I simply love this pattern, you stitch the outline and colour it with colouring pencils, I used silver thread for the snowflakes, the loveheart should be a button but I did not have the right one, I suppose I could have made a polymer clay button but decided not to bother. 
Here are some more photographs………..
Here is the next free pattern I have started, it is another freebie from a blog called Joypatch here, I will be doing a mini tutorial on how to do these stitcheries next Sunday, this one is a real cute design! 
I have finished it but you have to wait until next week because I am off to watch Downton Abbey, it is a period drama showing in England and I simply love it, it is my favourite Sunday night treat.
Until next time – Happy Stitching!  
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
Lynn B

    Lovely work Lynn, and nice neat stitching. I am in the middle of knitting cute robins at the moment and have not started the Peacock cross stitch I bought from you, I will soon.
