Happiness is cross stitching blog

Freebie Friday and Instagram!!!

Hi everyone, the Freebie Friday pattern today is the Spring design to match the Summer, Autumn and Winter patterns I have designed. 

The colours on the pattern grid do not show up as bright as they are in real life, I therefore decided to show the threads to give you a better idea of the colours.

The design grid is at the bottom of this post, just click on the image and then right click to save to your computer. If you have a problem with the printing of the pattern please email me and let me know, I can then send you a pdf copy for ease of use or if you are a member of the Craftsy website you can access all of my patterns here.

You can also access all of the patterns in the seasons collection on my blog in this post here

Other news……..
I have weakened!!!! I am now on Instagram, you can find me on there as stitchingfairy and on Ravelry under the same name, although  I have been on Ravelry quite a number of years now. 
I must admit I do like being able to quickly upload a picture rather than faffing about with my camera, I was lucky enough to get a new iphone for Christmas after borrowing the iphone 4 from my sister for a few months, I liked it that much I had to get one!
If you want to see some of my first photos on Instagram you will see some crochet bracelets I have been making and a couple of funny cross stitch designs. Don’t laugh but I only have one follower so far! Lol….. ?   Of course I will show my crochet on here in my next post too. 
If any of you are on Instagram give me a shout and I will pop over to see you. 
I am tentatively thinking about learning how to upload videos to You Tube, I did it once but not very successfully, I may do a video showing some of my boxes and ornaments that I have made over the years.
Until next time, happy stitching!

Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
Lynn B

    Thank you for the lovely design! 🙂 I can't wait to see your crochet pieces. 🙂 I think a You Tube video would be awesome! You know, there is this thing on You Tube called "floss tube" and it's where all the cross stitchers get on there and give updates of their projects, and some do reviews of magazines and stuff. It's a lot of fun. I hope you join in on the fun. Blessings always. 🙂

    love your little spring stitching! Guess I need to check out instagram – a new one for me. I am not into taking pictures so it probably is not the place for me. I would love to see your You Tube videos!

    Love the cardigan you are knitting: beautiful colours and lovely model.

    Spring is a charming design, Lynn, thank you. If the days were longer I'd get a lot more stitching done. 😉
    I'm not "on" instagram so I wasn't able to check out your pix.

    Hi! I love your patterns and blog! I was just wondering what software or app program you use as I would like to design a pattern for myself? Thanks!

    Hi Lynn! I made these adorable seasonal patterns but I'm not a sewer so I framed them. I tagged you on IG so you could see them. I hope I didn't butcher your designs!
