Hi everyone, I have always been a Prairie Schooler fan, I just love the cute designs, this one was a quick stitch that I took with me on the flight to England last week, the little pouch for the threads and scissors came in really handy. I am not sure how I am going to finish this yet but I am pleased with how it looks.
British Craft Awards 2017
I went to the British Craft Awards last week, I had a fabulous time but I cannot announce the winner as I think I should allow the winner to do that herself, suffice to say it was no surprise as she is a very talented stitcher.
I met Ruth the editor from the World of Cross Stitching Magazine which was one of the highlights of the evening for me, it was funny because I said "oh you may not remember me but I am Lynn from Happiness is Cross Stitching blog" and she laughed and said "of course I do, we read your blog in the office"! Well that was a nice moment for me, its kinda funny when the blog world becomes reality, it is a bit surreal too because I was seeing faces that I had only ever seen on the internet and you feel like you know them very well, when in fact you have only read their blogs.
I saw lots of faces I "knew" but was a bit too shy to approach them, maybe if I ever get chance to attend again I will be brave! Lol......
Thankyou for voting for me, I got the chance to see lots of "famous faces" and it was a real treat, and I could not have been there without your kind votes, it was an honour to be there.
I have made another project bag and I can also show you a couple of gifts that I made.
I have had this fabric in my stash for a long time but it was perfect for my latest project bag.
This is my favorite side of the bag
I delivered this gift last week, the recipient loved it!
My sister lived in North Carolina for a few years, so I decided to make her this cross stitch for Christmas, it was a real quick stitch, you can purchase this pattern and many other maps here in England, it is by one of my favourite designers, Sue Hillis designs.
I also stitched the address under North Carolina but erased it for the blog post
I finished stitching the free Spring design, hopefully I should get time to do the Winter design for next Freebie Friday.
I can be found on Pinterest here and on Ravelry and Instagram as stitchingfairy.
Until next time, happy stitching!
