Announcement   Welcome to my little corner of Etsy! Here you'll find an eclectic assortment of more than two hundred original cross stitch designs and collections, ranging from traditional to primitive to modern to avant garde (with a little bit of everything in between). Whatever style you prefer, I hope you find something here you want to stitch, either for yourself or as a gift.

If you're still interested in purchasing an older chart that you found or favorited sometime in the past but that isn't currently listed in the shop, just let me know, and I'll be happy to re-list it for you.

Whenever possible, my charts are available as instant downloads. There are still one or two items that I will have to e-mail to you (within 48 hours or less, of course), but everything else in the shop can now be yours as soon as you complete your purchase.

Thanks to the wonderful support I've gotten here on Etsy, my designs have made their way to all fifty states (and Washington, DC), ten of thirteen Canadian provinces, and two-dozen foreign countries (on four continents); appeared on the BUZZFEED website homepage; been mentioned in several blogs; gotten a shout-out on Julie Jackson's "Subversive Cross Stitch" Facebook page; appeared on the websites for both MENTAL FLOSS and PEOPLE magazines; and been used as set decoration in Wildfang's short promotional film EVAN RACHEL WOULD ... WOW!

MULTI-CHART DISCOUNTS ARE AVAILABLE! If you are interested in purchasing more than one of my charts, please convo me, so I can create a custom (and discounted) listing just for you! (Please note that I can only offer discounts on multi-chart orders if you convo me first to create a custom combo listing for you.)

Please check back soon for more new charts. I'm always exploring ideas for new designs to add to the shop.

About

It All Starts With An Idea

All of my designs start out as an idea. (I'm not really sure how I get my ideas; they just seem to happen.)

Once I have an idea for a new chart, I might make a rough sketch of it on paper to help me organize my thoughts - or (more often than not) I might just start playing around with the idea using my design software and seeing where the creative process leads.

I'll be honest. Sometimes (OK...a lot of times), the process leads to digital chaos. Other times, though, it leads to a design that I really like, and when that happens, I'll edit/revise the chart until I'm happy with the way it looks.

That's the first - and most enjoyable - part of the process.

After I finish charting the design, I get to work formatting the chart (and choosing symbols for all of the floss colors); creating digital mock-ups/graphics, color keys, and cover sheets for the char; and converting everything into individual PDF files, which I then combine into one large PDF file for instant download here on Etsy.
