Happiness is cross stitching blog

Works in progress, a new start and a finish!

Hi everyone, thankyou for your lovely comments on my last post about my sons bithday, time certainly does fly!

I have been getting quite a bit of stitching done in the past few months, I started this Country Cottage Needlework design and I love it! It was a quick stitch and before I knew it I had finished it. I used the called for threads and I am so pleased with the result, I am unsure if I am going to get it framed or finish it into a pillow. (More photos below)
Works in progress
Liberty Lane was my next work in progress but I ran out of the called for thread so had to wait until they arrived, I don’t have much to do on this, it should be finished soon.
Sunflowers in Summer I started a few months ago but again I ran out of the threads, I only have a little bit to finish on the bottom border,  I am almost certain I will finish this into a pillow. 
Little House Neighbourhood is a new start I began only a couple of weeks ago, I stitched the same design for my sister a few years ago and I always wanted to stitch it for myself, I am pleased to say I have nearly finished it, I will show that in my next post.

August mini cat pattern

I am a little late with August mini cat, it is now available on my blog.

Mini cat and Miss mini are in Paris for their honeymoon! (see image below)

Love the colours in this, although I have seen this stitched in Americano colours and it looks fabulous!
I love the fabric 
The August  freebie pattern will be available on Friday of this week
Until next time, happy stitching!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    Oh my gosh Lynn – these are all beautiful projects. You must have very good eyes to do all this stitching. I know my eyes would never hold up!!

    Oh Lynn all your CCN and LHN stitches are so pretty! I do like these designs. I love the American patriotic designs but would you believe it's never occurred to me to stitch one before as I'm not American? As if there is a law against it!
