Happiness is cross stitching blog

A gift from Val and June mini cat preview

Hi everyone, I have been a little busy lately and have had no time for blogging!

Recently I received a lovely gift in the post from my blogging friend Val over at
Fee Le Point blog here  , isn’t it lovely? Val sent me a gorgeous cross stitched gift with pretty ribbons, threads, labels, lace and some gorgeous little tags, I am so thrilled! Thankyou Val for such a lovely gift, I really appreciate it, even more so because it was such a surprise!  More photos below.

Apologies to those of you waiting for June’s mini cat pattern, I am a little delayed with it, I was designing it yesterday and it will be available within the next few days. Here is a sneak peek!

It shows the mini cat peeking over a garden fence, I have included pretty flowers and possibly I will include some butterflies too! Still in progress but available soon!

More photos of Vals gift.

Until next time, happy stitching!


Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
