Happiness is cross stitching blog

June Pillow finished and recent stitching

Hi everyone, here is the completed pillow for June, if you would like to stitch the monthly patterns they are available from The Fat Quarter shop, the design is by Hands on Design.

I do seem to be in a pillow stitching mood at the moment and wanting to finish half finished projects.
I finally managed to finish another crochet pillow that I started a few years ago, I stitched the buttons on yesterday but I have not taken photos yet. I have also completed another half finished project that is a pillow with applique on the front which I will be showing soon.
A few months ago I made a project bag set and decided to make another one for my Etsy shop, this is the second one I made, it is quite a large bag that will fit a sweater or blanket project inside.
I was hoping to stitch quite a bit more for my shop update, I may have the energy to make a couple more project bags but this is what I have made so far, hope you like them!
Freebie Friday yesterday???
I posted a free pattern on my blog yesterday (Saturday) thinking it was Friday, ah ah, having a senior moment!
I love the lace zipper on the notions pouch
with a cute Paris charm on the zip
  I love the colours in this little Tilda fabric notions pouch and pin cushion
I really enjoyed working with this beautiful fabric
I recently visited a market in the Dordogne and purchased this vintage linen, I hand washed the fabric and created this little notions pouch and lavender sachets.
Etsy shop update Thursday 29th June 7pm UK time, 8pm Paris time.
Until next time, happy stitching!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    A post filled with beautiful things Lynn! I love the lace trim on the zip too, it's those little details that really finish your work.

    I am really loving the monthly pillows!! Tilda fabric is a favorite of mine. I love small scale floral prints and this one is perfect!
