"Makes Me Happy Monday."

Hello and a very Happy Monday to you.

I had a lovely weekend and I hope you did as well.


Onto what is making me happy today. Just look at the lovely lot of crochet thread and a hook from Marina. Some crocheting is on the cards over Summer. Thank you so much Marina, appreciate it so much.


I picked up the "Welcome" cross stitch from the framers last week. Please ignore the image of the woman taking the photo in the glass.Didn't realise it until I had it loaded up.


Today I finished the last Christmas Stitchery. I made this one into a table topper.  I had fun making little tassels from the DMC thread for his scarf. I machine embroidered the words "It's 45 degrees here- I need a cold drink" We haven't got the climate for a Snowmen to survive let alone exist. I think I should have added a "coldie" in his hand!!!

I hope you have a "Happy Monday" and all the best for the week. I wonder what is making you happy today.

Happy days.
Bev C

Happy to contribute to keeping those hands busy!
Your cross stitch looks fantastic. Just looks lovely framed.
that topper is so cute. I always think Snowmen are out of place here too but yours is perfect.
