Happiness is cross stitching blog

Santa’s Village progress

Just a quick post to show Santa’s Village progress so far, I just need to stitch the fifth cottage quickly and then I will be back on track, I like to stitch one a  month. I love the bright colours in this design, it just makes me want Christmas to arrive sooner!

I have been sewing a blouse this week, I am very pleased the way it has turned out,  it is in my favourite colour of pink. You can read more details and see more photos on my dressmaking blog here
I am hoping to get some more stitching done on Santa’s Village this week.  
Until next time, Happy Stitching! 
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    Love the houses and the blouse! Really nice pink, but the houses are made in really warm Xmas colors, but I am happy to wait 7 months to Xmas, still lots of time to make more creations!
