Happiness is cross stitching blog

Happy New Year and new Spring design.

Happy New Year to all of my readers!

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to the year ahead.

Spring design 
I have been stitching the free Spring cross stitch pattern that I designed to match the other season freebies, I do hope you like it, I have designed it in two colours, a bright yellow and a mocha.
In the photo above you can see two finishing styles, one is the first stage where I did not put any cording around the edge, you can leave your pillow like that or make the narrow cord and trim the edges with it.
More photos below of the Spring design.

    Lynn – thank you so much for these great designs – so charming.

    One thing I'm really wondering about is your move to France- I hope you will share some of that adventure with us and about your new home. Thanks so much.

    Spring has been printed and I'll begin stitching soon. I thought I had Winter finished but then noticed that I hadn't done the backstitch frame – mine needs it to help the snow show up better. These are so cute, Lynn. I am so looking forward to Mini Cat having a girlfriend, lol. Thanks again for sharing these with us.
