Happiness is cross stitching blog

Winner and some stitching!

Hi everyone, Happy New Year!

Thankyou everyone for leaving the comments on the giveaway, it was interesting to learn who your favourite designers are, I enjoyed reading them all.

The winner of the giveaway in my last post is Suzanne VAUDREUIL-DORION, QC, CANADA

Congratulations Suzanne, please email me and I will arrange to send the goodies and the free digital book!

I will be posting more giveaways soon!

Winner of giveaway and stitching this week.

Some comments are not shown below as I did receive quite a few by email but for some strange reason they did not show up in the comments on the website.

Stitching updates and another free pattern.

I have been doing a little bit of Christmas stitching in December on my new free Silent Night pattern that you can download below. I know some of you like to stitch Christmas designs in January, so I suppose I can say I am not late just early for December this year!

Silent night free cross stitch pattern available to download.

The stitching is finished but I just need to make it into a scissor fob ready for my next post.

Autumn Snowflake

Loved using this variegated floss for this Autumn Snowflake design, it is made up of cross stitches and French knots and straight stitch.

Patterns in colour and black and white

In my last post I published two patterns of the same design, one in colour and one in black and white. Both patterns include a colour image at the top of the pattern, however, this confused some people saying there was no black and white pattern, there is, just scroll down to see it and just print the black and white page.

The patterns below include a colour and black and white pattern with the colours listed as always.

Until next time, Happy Stitching!
