Happiness is cross stitching blog

Hello everyone, Bonjour!

Hi everyone, we have arrived in our new home in the countryside of central France and love it here, the weather has been so lovely, I have been wearing short sleeves ever since we arrived which is nice, nothing but gorgeous sunshine!   

Apologies for the delay in posting but I did not get around to keeping you updated on my travels as I wanted to do, time just flew by.

Here is my latest mini cat design, this December mini cat completes the full calender of mini cats for 2015, I hope you enjoy stitching it. The patterns are all freebies, you can download them from my mini cat page here.   
I will be taking a blogging break until January, I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year, until next time……..
Happy Stitching!   
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
Lynn B

    These cats charts are very cute, and I would like to use them for a calendar for my granddaughter. I plan to use the November chart in place of the January chart, but I need something, then, for November. Do you have something more fall-themed that would fit in these dimensions. I see your lovely autumn chart, but I'm not good at altering a pattern to fit, and it would, of course, need a cat! Thank you!
