About Me

New York, United States
I’m in my mid-ish 30’s (excuse me while I sob uncontrollably). I love coffee, cross stitching, reading, gardening and travel. I hope to pass along some patterns and pick a few up along the way.

Trick Or Treat Lane

Trick or Treat Lane by Nordic Needle has one of the best ghost patterns, I think they are really funny. I have fallen shamefully behind in my stitching, and it looks like this will be it for my Halloween projects. Ah well, on to Christmas.

I fear that I've gone too far with poor Franco

It's almost that time... We had some turkeys visit the other day, no toms in sight though.

1 Corinthians 13:1:13

I stitched this upon request for my mother. It's a bad shot, but I found a lovely border that has since become one of my favorites. I used red berries on top and blue on bottom. I'll have to try to get a better shot of it. I will also try to remember to scan and post the pattern for this boarder.

Willow Tree Inn

I don't know why I can't leave well enough alone, I changed the "Willow Tree Inn" pattern a little. I stitched it on 14 ct aida and changed a few of the colors and omited a few things (like the J from the alphabet, in keeping w/the time period). I bought the pattern from Criss Cross Row.

Bird of Paradise

Here is a freebie, the pattern for the Bird of Paradise. I am not sure if I sent it properly to Terry, so here it is.

Pumpkin House

I think this is a perfect little pattern for the beginning of fall. I stitched this on 14 count Aida and am considering putting it on the side of a canvas tote bag.

Four Fat Friends

This is a cute freebie pattern from The Drawn Thread called "Four Fat Friends". They Call for Weeks Dye Works colors, and I only have DMC floss, so I used 3031 for the bark, 3362 for the leaves, 3857 for the birds bellies and 926 for their back feathers (two ply for all on 14 count aida, and 310 black for their beaks and legs).
