Such a fun embroidery pattern! Thanks.
Obsessive Girl Stitches Constantly
One day I found a piece of Aida in some old craft supplies of my mother's and decided to make something. The complete and utter freedom of cross-stitch, blackwork, and free embroidery turned me into an obsessive stitcher.
After designing and stitching my own patterns for a year I noticed that many people bought their patterns and decided to get in on the action.
Embroidery, for me, is also about sanity. I have two chronic pain conditions which cause constant pain, even if I lie in bed all the time. I'm home, alone, the vast majority of my life and always in desperate need of distraction. When I first became sick knitting saved my life, now needlework continues to save it.
I became disabled when I was 20, so my personal hobbies had to shift quite a lot, towards things I could still do. My time is spent designing and stitching, reading, cooing over my cat like a crazy person, and collecting tea cups.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
Finished pieces will be shipped within three days of purchase, barring the two weeks before Christmas when I will not be shipping anything.
If you are unable to download a pattern you previously purchased, it is because the files have been updated. Please contact me (preferably via your purchase information so I have the order number) and I will e-mail you the pattern files.
Refunds and Exchanges
If a listing title includes the word "pattern" it is just that, a pattern, not a finished piece.
Additional policies and FAQs
My patterns do not use symbols (in general), but solid color blocks on graph paper. For me this is both the easiest way to create a pattern and the easiest to read when stitching.
I am not currently able to convert my patterns to symbols only, though I am working on that with a few of the more complex ones.
If a pattern is difficult to read on your monitor or after printing (ie: if the colors run together), please contact me and I'll work to fix it for you.
