Happiness is cross stitching blog

Meet and Greet………..

Hello everyone, today is Meet and Greet day!
This idea was from Mdm Samm at Sew we Stitch blog here, where you can see a list of bloggers that are involved in the Meet and Greet.
What is it about?
Well, we introduce ourselves to new readers, talk a bit about ourselves and   show at least three photographs of our favourite finishes. 
I have been cross stitching for 28 years, I also design cross stitch patterns, in particular my free mini cat designs, that are available on my blog and in my Craftsy store here I also love dressmaking, crochet and polymer clay modelling. I frequently finish my cross stitches into boxes and show my tutorials on my cross stitch finishing blog.

 I apologise to my regular readers but you have probably seen these photographs before.

This is my handmade box and toblerone needlecase with accessories, they were made from a flat piece of card and finished into these stitching items.

I hope you enjoy these photographs!

This little pink set is another of my favourite boxes.
I really enjoyed making this little selection. 
One of my favourite mini quilts, I stitched this using a pattern from Bronwyn at the Red Brolly Blog. I made matching tags and sent this to a partner in a gift exchange.
Until next time, happy stitching!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
Lynn B

    I love seeing them all again! They are lovely to say the least. Another favorite for me was your tea collection that you did a long time ago. It's on your sidebar. I'd love to be entered in your giveaway. Many thanks!

    Hi Lynn B,
    I've been to your place before for some of your examples and tutorials and it's so nice getting back here. Your stitching is absolutely gorgeous. Love all those details you put in and the finishes look wonderful.

    OMG…they are all sweet! I especially like the red arrangements but the black cats, well I don't think I could choose if I has too. I love them all.

    Lynne – oh my goodness that Edwardian set is stunning! The elegance of black and white and the precision of the finishing touches is exquisite. The bunny makes me smile and the little red sewing machine – favorites. Of course, I love your mini cats and am saving the patterns so that I can make them soon. Like most I have a pattern I'm in the middle of and need to finish but soon I'll get to begin them. blessings, marlene

    Just beautiful projects. I really love the Edwardian Lady Stitching set.

    Just catching up and I do love your projects. Do you have a tutorial on how you cover your boxes. It makes projects a bit more useful I think. Sharing your site with my daughter who cross stitches and has a black cat! Thanks for sharing.
