Happiness is cross stitching blog

Christmas stitching

Hi everyone, I thought i was about time I returned to stitching these Christmas ornaments, I lost interest in them for a while because I needed some more beads to trim the edges.

The pattern is a Sue Hillis design, The Twelve Days of Christmas and I love it.

I keep everything in my little Strawberries for tea tray that I made using one of my mini cat designs. 

Mini Cat Designing news 
I have been busy designing a new mini cat calendar series for 2018, I talked about this in my last post and forgot to show the completed stitching, (photo below) the pattern is a freebie on my blog.
The colours are truly stunning in this design.

Until next time, happy stitching!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    Hi Lynn! Another great post. I am liking this new series as well as the "Love to Sew". I'll be visiting your page soon. Also wondering if you can do a kitty with MACHINE EMBROIDERY theme?
