Happiness is cross stitching blog

Mini cat cross stitch finishes

I have been stitching my free mini cat patterns this week and finishing them into flatfolds.

 I am quite pleased with the way they look, they are such a quick stitch too!

Edited Whilst these patterns are freebies I will in the future be creating pdfs that include more stitching details, thread legend and a black and white pattern with beginner cross stitch instructions, these will be available from my craftsy store. This holly mini cat in the stocking is now available as a pdf here from my Craftsy store.

In my next post I will show you a recent ornament I have made for my sister, she really liked the design so I have stitched it as a surprise for her, I am delivering it tomorrow with christmas gifts.

This gift was sent to me this week from a blogging friend, I was so thrilled to receive such a surprise gift, isn’t it lovely? This gorgeous biscornu, pretty card and thread was sent to me from my friend Caitlin, thankyou so much, I love it and appreciate all the work that went into making it.

I also signed up for a christmas card exchange and my partner was June from Butterfly wings blog here   I love this card it is so pretty, the delicate beading and fine stitching, thankyou June I really appreciate it. 
Until next time…….
Happy Stitching!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    I love your black cat patterns! I stitched the one on the left in the flat folds picture this year.

    Do you have a tutorial on how to make the flat folds? It would be wonderful to make mine like you made yours!

    Happy Holidays!
