Nott the Brave free cross stitch pattern

Today has been a great day: I managed to drop my wiggly toddler (WT) at his grandmothers house and found myself in the rare occasion of having a couple of free hours. At first I was running around trying to get my hands on every unfinished project in sight (lots and lots of those!), but then I felt SO VERY CREATIVE.

This little lady has been haunting me for some time now, especially after I saw her Cat Cosplay version. So today Happy Stitch proudly presents —

Dream! A flying cat free pattern – and some words about my life

Hey everybody,

Did you miss me?

It seems that I haven’t posted for almost a year now. Did they tell you that life with a kid gets easier with time? Well, it’s not exactly true. Now I have a toddler on my hands (quite an active one), and oh how I miss those beautiful days when he had naps three times a day and went to bed at 6 am!

But then there is a bright side – I feel as creative as ever, and if I find just a handful of time, I create (and create, and create, and…. zzzzz……). There is a load of new designs in my Etsy shop, do check them out at https://www.etsy.com/shop/HappyStitchNet !

One more new thing too. Soon all my designs featured on Etsy chill also be available to be purchased and downloaded directly from this blog. Wait for the official announcement!

And here is a freebie pattern for every cat lover out there 🙂 Continue reading »

“I love you” in binary code – finished stitching

Hey everyone! Guess who had had enough free evenings (four, to be exact) to finish a tiny project for Valentine’s day? That’s me! Since my little boy decided to go to bed really early, at 6 pm (and to wake at 5 am, but that is another story), I finally have some time to spend on stuff I like 🙂 Luckily that small design doesn’t need much.

I love you in binary code cross stitch project

The pattern can be found in my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/261506853/ . Be sure to use the coupon listed in shop’s description!

The colors are off, though, I could not find my stash because of moving from one flat to another, and just grabbed the available colors.

The stitching is mounted in a little wooden hoop.

Why there are no new posts ==>

Hello everybody,

In case you lost me and are wondering why am I not writing any posts, well, here is the reason:

ian

His name is Ian, and on November, 16th he turned three months. And though I try really hard, there is no way I can squeeze work into our daily routine (they say it gets better with time – I sure hope so).

Anyway, I’m still reading comments and sometimes even have a minute to answer.

Love and kisses,
Maria

Home is where Mom is – a stitching by Alexandra

Hi everybody,

Hope you were not troubled to much with my absence? Being utterly and completely pregnant, I had spent some months feeeling morning sickness just by looking at my laptop, set aside opening it 🙂 But hopefully I am through that period now – and back to stitching!

Mother’s Day is advancing on us, and Alexandra asked me to make a custom pattern for her Mom, featuring the phrase, Home is whre Mom is. She sent me a photo of her finished stitching, and it looks great, agree?

Home is where Mom is

I totally love the way it turned out.  Alexandra, thank you so much for sharing! 🙂

So if you, by any chance, stitched some of my patterns, don’t hesitate to send a photo – I would really enjoy seeing how they come to life, and sharing the photos with the rest of the world.
