From Crayons to Floss

How does a homeschooling mom, wife, and sometimes substitute teacher release her inner artist? By designing counted cross stitch patterns of course!
My name is Cyndy Young and I actually began my artistic career as a three year old with a box of Crayola Crayons and a coloring book. I continued that career by studying Graphic Design in college and eventually having my own little, short lived craft business until the kids started arriving. Now that they are a little older I have returned to art and design and I am really excited to share with you what has been simmering on the back burner for the last few years.
Color is my main inspiration. Finding ways to use color is my main challenge. I am also inspired by artists, such as Richard Scarry, Mary Blair, Joan Walsh Anglund and Charley Harper. My first medium, that I played around with (other than crayons, which I still love) was paint. When that proved too risky around toddlers I decided to pull out my embroidery thread and found the inspiring world of counted cross stitch. Counted cross stitch is, in my humble opinion, a perfect blend of graphic design and coloring...or painting. That is why I will often refer to it as thread painting.
And now you know how this mom, wife and teacher releases her inner artist... by designing fun little cross stitch patterns that I hope you will enjoy!

Care instructions

When you have finished a project it often shows a little soil from the stitching process. To clean simply hand wash in luke warm water with a mild soap. Rinse in luke warm water. To dry place your piece on a clean towel and roll it up. Gently squeeze the towel without twisting it. Unroll the towel and lay in a clean area where it can finish drying. Do not iron stitching directly. You can iron fabric around the stitching. If you iron the stitching it will flatten your threads and possibly distort the design. There are also a number of great online resources with instructions for caring for your finished cross stitch project.
