Happiness is cross stitching blog

Finished red winter sampler, new pattern design pending and Just Nan exclusives in my shop.

Hi everyone, I have finished my red winter sampler, I have a new pattern design pending and I am a new supplier of Just Nan cross stitch products!

This is the sampler I started stitching just before Christmas, I ran out of silk thread and had to wait for a delivery, I think it took 4 skeins in total but it was a delight to stitch with the silk threads.
 I have the Tiny Bunny Biscornu with the matching bunny pin with instructions and embellishments included, I also have the new design of Mouse in the House products for 2017.
The first one is the Spring Mouse in the House pattern with embellishments, it is so cute and the other three seasons of Summer Autumn and Winter are out soon,they are limited editions and once sold out from Just Nan they will not be repeated.
Spring Mouse is available now in my Etsy shop if the listing is not shown it means they are temporarily out of stock but you can email me and I can let you know when they will be in stock again. 
If you are not on Etsy you can always email me privately and I can arrange an order via email.

I have a gorgeous collection of Just Nan charm pins that will be going into my shop this week, I love them so much I want to keep them for myself!    SOLD

Mouse in the House Pattern including instructions and embellishments.
Felt included but not the fabric, this will have to be purchased separately.
I have not yet seen the other houses in the seasons but I am sure they will be just as cute!
These gorgeous charm pins will be in my Etsy shop this week, I only currently have one of each design, these are so pretty!

    Oh, what a gorgeous red sampler, Lynn! I have stitched the top and bottom motifs as small ornaments (over one) and I loved seeing your full finish–absolutely lovely 🙂

    Oh I am in love with your beautiful red sampler. I know this will keep me up at night, dreaming of stitching it….I hope you are happy! 🙂 I have never crossed stitched with silk threads, but they seem to have added a richness in color to your lovely sampler that I don't normally see using DMC. The only thing that is saving me from clicking that "BUY ME NOW" button is that I am….ahem…on "restriction" from buying crafty purchases. Oh sure a girl buys a few "necessities" (which, as we all know, is truly relative) and all of a sudden she's labeled a "hoarder" and put on "restriction". I have added this to my "Must have" list. 🙂 Thank you for sharing all your lovely projects and awesome designs with us. 🙂

    Wishing you a most lovely day. 🙂
