Patterns, Cross Stitch and Fun Projects

Hello everyone! Are you doing anything  this weekend? We moved recently and I’m unpacking boxes, painting furniture, again, and trying to figure out furniture from a bigger house to a smaller home with not as much wall space. It’s like starting completely over again. But I take breaks and have coffee and stitch just to settle my thoughts-

When stitching I personally like quick projects that I can finish and decorate with. But I also work on longer projects as well. 

I recently finished making my 110th pattern-

 It took me several weeks at first to make a pattern because frankly I wasn’t sure where to start. I purchased a book, took a course or two, watched training videos and learned how to put an outline together for a pattern and then the pattern

But my goal is to always make patterns and directions simple so that others can enjoy the process of making their design.

And let’s be honest-
Buying or gathering supplies can often be a thrill that is hard to describe.
The fabric-
The lace or Rick rack-
Threads, floss and needles,
Patterns and diy project books.
I love the process!

Love looking through patterns and directions-

And then using different finished items to decorate seasonally with-
And stitching for me helps me sort my thoughts.
While I’m stitching I’m thinking, organizing and processing-
When you get a chance visit my shop and see if there’s anything you need to start working on!
Let’s Make Something!
