Taking my love of software development, digital art and cross stitching and merging them into an incredible passion.

Hello Stitchers of all ages!

I've been cross stitching for as long as I can remember and I love it completely. The creativity of it drives me to create more and to share with those I love.

Then came time to become an adult and get to work in the real world. And that's where my other passion came into play…computers.

I got my Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Computer Science and set out to find a career. And I did…I was a paid code monkey at last. (YEA!) I worked my way up the ranks in that company all the way to VP of Software Development (it's a small company but hey I climbed the ranks of 10 people) but something was still missing.

Oh sure, I still cross stitched in some of my spare time but still something wasn't quite there. Then I realized that the patterns that I was stitching still weren't quite what I was looking for. So I started to create my own patterns. My first pattern was a sporty red Boxster car. I took that pattern and stitched it and framed it and gave it to my brother.

It was the greatest feeling to see something creative from start to finish and to see his reaction to something that he knew was uniquely made for him.

I knew then that I needed a creative outlet and my gut told me that there were others like me out there that just couldn't quite find the patterns they were looking for in their heart of hearts. So I started creating small patterns and gave them to friends who shared my love of cross stitching. They loved them.

And now I'm bringing those patterns here to Etsy and to all the cross stitchers out there looking for something different.

But what, you may be asking yourselves, does my love of computers and computer programming and software development have to do with cross stitching?

Well, images on computers are made up of pixels…little squares of color group together to form these incredible images…just like stitching little Xs on fabric into little squares. So it's not that great a leap for a geek like me to make. And that's where the name of my store gets its name.

I hope you enjoy my patterns as much as I do and I look forward to hearing from you about them. I'd be happy to take any requests from you for patterns you'd like to see. Just shoot me a quick email and I will get back to you as quickly as I can.

Happy Stitching!

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

Each counted cross stitch pattern lists the finished stitch count as well as the dimensions of the stitched item in several of the most popular thread counts available. If you want to use a different count fabric, you can easily calculate the finished size as well as the needed fabric.

Take the number of stitches wide and divide by the fabric thread count. Do the same with the height. That will give you the dimensions of the final stitched area. That does NOT take into account additional fabric that you will need around the finished design.

Be sure to add at least 3 inches (7.62 cm) PER SIDE to give you a comfortable amount of extra fabric on which to work on. So that would add 6 inches (15.24 cm) to both height and width.

Custom and personalized orders

Customized patterns can always be requested and I will work on it with you until you are completed satisfied with the resulting pattern.

Adding a personalization to a pattern (name, title, date, etc.) can be requested at no additional charge.

Do you offer large format charts?

Absolutely. I'm currently going through and adding the large format PDFs into each pattern listing. If you don't see it there yet, just contact me thru Etsy and I will get that pattern emailed to you.

What types of chart format will I get?

Everyone has their preferences and I do my best to accommodate. From my experience, it boils down to comfort level of the stitcher.

Currently, I offer 4 different pattern PDFs for each pattern - a regular format chart in either black and white or colored versions as well as larger format charts in again black and white or colored versions.

You do not have to choose an option when you order. All four are available to you after you order in your download section.

The PDFs have identifiers at the end of each file name that tells you what they are:

RC - regular format, colored chart
RBW - regular format, black and white chart
LC - large format, colored chart
LBW - large format, black and white chart

How do I line up the pages on large designs?

Each pattern PDF comes with a "pattern map" that shows the exact layout of where the pages are in relation to one another.

How do I know how to stitch overlapped pages?

Each page that has an overlap, has the overlapping 3 rows and/or columns highlighted in red on each page of the overlap. So if you stitch those 3 rows/columns on the first page, you would not stitch the red highlighted rows/columns on the next page that overlaps. You will start at the next square after the overlapped highlighted area.

The overlap is there to help show you how each page butts up to the previous page.
