I had no problems downloading the file. The chart is beautifully presented and I look forward to stitching this. I already have the off-white/cream linen fabric and will be using DMC 115 (variegated red and dark red).

Finished this Sugar Skull a couple of days ago - quite happy with the red colour! :)
Just finished this little cranky owl! Real fun pattern to quickly stitch up. Pattern is now available in the shop!


Counted cross-stitch charts with a darker twist...

Hi there!

For years I've been designing and selling cross-stitch patterns and kits under the name of Modern Folk Embroidery. Although I absolutely love designing and developing those patterns, there were some patterns that I had trouble with listing in my shop. I decided to create a 2nd shop, which you have found here!

Dark Crosses makes fun cross-stitch charts with a darker twist, ideal for Halloween, or as gifts for friends and family with a wicked sense of humour! I take pride in creating beautiful pattern booklets with nice cover designs, stitching information, and clear, well thought out charts, making your stitching experience a much more pleasant one.

Thank you for checking out my shop, and don't hesitate to contact me with any queries or comments. I also love seeing what you're creating, so do make sure to send me your progress on your Dark Crosses or Modern Folk Embroidery patterns!
