Happiness is cross stitching blog

Mother’s Day on Sunday in England!

Hi everyone, I thought I would show you my latest finish, it is  Mother’s Day on Sunday in England and this is a design I put together for my Mum.

There is quite a lot of work in this even though it may not look much, I was surprised at how long it took me to stitch it! I designed both the pillow pattern and the scissor fob, I have included the Mum pattern as a freebie in this post but you can also get the Pillow and Scissor fob pattern including the thread colours used from my Craftsy store here if you prefer the more detailed pdf pattern.
I think it will look nice stitched in different thread colours, perhaps lilac and yellow or bright blue perhaps?
Right click on the pattern below and save to your computer

Thankyou for all of your comments, until next time,
Happy stitching!  
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    It's a beauty, Lynn, thank you. I no longer have a mom or a mom in law so I may just stitch this for myself. :) Enjoy Mom's Day.

    A very sweet design for Mother's Day and I love your colour selection. Luckily Mother's Day in Canada isn't until May, so I might have time to stitch it in time for this year….thanks Lynn!

    I tried to find the pattern on your Craftsy store for the Pillow and Scissor Fob, but I couldn't find it. Also, what size Aida fabric did you use? I really love it and would love to make it for my Mom.

    Message for unknown…..
    Sorry I cannot reply as you have not left an email address for a reply, I cannot remember the count of the fabric I used, it was linen not aida, probably 32 count linen.

    If you email me with an email address I maybe able to help some more.
