About

Finding therapy for my homesickness, one stitch at a time...

Hello! My name is Jenny and I was born and raised New Zealand. I have lived in the United States for the past 14 years with my American husband and together we have three young children. I was taught to cross stitch when I was 8 years old by my Aunt and it has been my favourite craft ever since.

The inspiration to design New Zealand themed cross stitch patterns came to me in 2008 after my husband and I returned to the USA after a 6 month stay in NZ. I was missing home and, as always, had several little cross stitch projects on the go. It was around this time when I realised that many of the foundational themes cross stitch designs and samplers feature – homes, native flora and fauna, seasonal and patriotic themes and the celebration of faith, family and friends – could be translated into characteristically New Zealand designs. And so, I started sketching a few ideas down on paper... drawing upon New Zealand’s rich heritage, beauty and unique way of life.

The journey towards self publishing my cross stitch designs has been a long work in progress which has taken place around the births of each of our children. There have been many more sketches made since those first few in 2008 and countless hours spent stitching late at night! I am thrilled to offer my range of cross stitch designs that celebrate New Zealand’s identity and the love I have for my homeland, no matter where in the world I find myself. Recently, I have also released a few Australian themed patterns alongside my New Zealand ones. Our countries share so much in common and it has been fun to create some Aussie versions of my original Kiwi designs. However, for as many similarities as there are, I hope I have captured some of the unique differences between Australia and New Zealand in my work, as well. I have also branched out and designed a number of universal hoop art patterns that will appeal to stitchers all over the world!

After much contemplation, I finally settled upon a name for this little venture on a day when I was feeling particularly homesick and made up the word 'home-stitch-ness' as a play on the emotion. I find stitching to be very therapeutic and whenever I work on my New Zealand themed designs, it helps me feel closer to home. When I searched online for ‘homestitchness’ to see if the name had ever been used before, Google found no results and simply asked ‘Did you mean: homesickness?’ - and really, that was EXACTLY what I meant! :o)

Thank you for taking an interest in my work. I hope you will enjoy stitching my designs as much as I have enjoyed creating them - I would love to see a photo when you are finished! :o)
