Happiness is cross stitching blog

Autumn stitch along anyone?

Hi everyone, I have finally managed to get into my craft room and do some finishing on my Autumn pattern.

I finished my free Autumn pattern into a flat fold adding a little pumpkin charm to the corner as I thought it was the perfect embellishment, I also stitched the needlebook but forgot the sheep would not show up on the white fabric, it is not too bad but I am making another one.

Stitch along 

Would anyone like to join in a stitch along with a chance of winning a small gift from me?

All you need to do is stitch the Autumn pattern and fully finish your stitching into a completed piece, for example, into a pillow, a needlebook or anything you choose and send me the finished photo and I will post all of the finishes onto my blog.

I will choose one winner from all of the entrants and send a little gift that has been stitched by me using the Autumn pattern.

You will have until Friday the 18th October to send me your photos and I will announce the winner on Sunday 20th October.

If you would like a pdf copy of the pattern please send me your email address or download the pattern from this post here


Until next time, happy stitching!

Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    Your needlebook turned out beautifully, it's just a really fluffy sheep! Maybe outlining it with a soft colour would help?
    I think I might need to join in on this one.

    This is so lovely Lynn – why don't you just outline the sheep in the brown or gold color – it should show up then. This is such a neat pattern.

    I always outline my sheep in a light gray or if you have a very fine pen go lightly around it.
