Now, a bit about me 🙂
I’m Cheryl, a freelance graphic designer, mom to 2 wonderful girls, and obsessive cross stitcher! I’ve been stitching since I was a kid, and started designing patterns in 2008 when I couldn’t find anything bright, bold, fun, and modern to stitch!
There is something so amazing about cross stitching and seeing a pattern come to life as you work. It’s like painting with cloth and thread. It’s calming, meditative, and a great stress-reliever. I love the fine details of making each little “x”, watching as floss colors combine into a beautiful palette, and adding a touch of backstitch to make the whole design come together at the end.
Cross stitching is a fantastic hobby – and I hope you are inspired to try it yourself!
And please remember- I’m always happy to help if you have any questions about cross stitching or the patterns you find here.
Please contact me with your comments, questions, and ideas!
