Happiness is cross stitching blog

My 2012 cross stitch finishes and a cross stitch Biscornu finish.

What’s new for 2013?
Hi everyone, here are my cross stitch and stitchery finishes for 2012. I did not get much finishing done on the stitcheries, I cannot get easy access to my sewing machine as it is under a pile of stuff in my craft room. I am hoping to get my craft room fitted out this year. 
I had a plan to get this done by the end of February and get it all organised but it is not looking good at the moment. My craft room is so untidy, I have nowhere to put things away, it really drives me nuts having stuff all over the place.! At least I will be getting a new sewing table to house my sewing machine, it will be so nice to have a permanent place  for it after all these years.
Plans for 2013.
What plans have  I got for my blog in 2013? Well, one of my new ventures will be guest blogging, I have asked a couple of well known stitchers from the stitching world to do a guest post on my blog and I am delighted that they have said yes. One of my guests is a cross stitch blogger who is well known in the Cross Stitch Blog community and is a wonderful stitcher and creator, I am not going to tell you who it is, you will have to wait and see! My other guest is also a well known crafter who designs her own patterns and creates some wonderful things too –  I am looking forward to planning these over the next few months. 
Giveaways is another item on the agenda, I did not get around to doing as much as I would have liked last year but I have one or two nice ideas for giveaways that I am sure you will love. Some of you will know I love making small polymer clay items to add to my giveaways, I have got some ideas to include in my next giveaway, just keep a look out for those.   
I will also be designing more free cross stitch patterns, I have one or two small Valentine cross stitch designs that will be published soon.

Biscornu for The World Of Cross Stitching Magazine
I made this Biscornu for The World Of Cross Stitching, it was published in their special subscribers edition and I forgot to show it on my blog, I have the cross stitch design somewhere in my computer, when I find it I will publish it on my blog for you to have access to it.

You can see a tutorial for making a Biscornu on my tutorials blog  here .
Welcome to all of my new followers and regular readers!
Happy stitching until next time.
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    The Biscornu is such an interesting shape. Yours is beautiful.

    There was a time when I did a lot of cross stitching. It just isn't part of my world now, but maybe…
