Art Imitating Life

One of my favorite things about creating cross-stitch patterns is the endless possibility for design.

With simple needle and thread, anyone can create a masterpiece – even one worthy of scientific recognition!

I have designed these special pieces due to popular request from the stitching community. I love the life-like results and they have appealed to such a range of crafter, from students to doctors.

This last one is my newest addition. I just posted the brain pattern last night. Hope you enjoy my creations – happy stitching!

The holidays are here once again, and it’s a great time to cozy in with the family, enjoy a little time off of school and work, and get busy cross-stitchin’! With all the classic holiday movies about to start up on television, what better way to relive those old favorites than with a Thanksgiving themed cross-stitch pattern?

Here are some that I have made. They can all be found under the holiday section of my Bella Stitchery Design shop on Etsy.

Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go

Wake me up before you go-go,
I don’t wanna miss it when you hit that high.
Wake me up before you go-go,
‘Cause I’m not planning on goin’ solo.
Wake me up before you go-go,
Take me dancing tonight…
I wanna hit that high…
Yeah, yeah.

Wham! Timeless elegance and lyrical poetry. I just finished this one-of-a-kind cross-stitch pattern last night and I am so excited to share it with you!

Spoooooktacular Cross-Stitch

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore—
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door—
“‘Tis some visitor,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door—
               Only this and nothing more.”

The Raven

Edgar Allan Poe

Fall is a great time of year to decorate, and Halloween is filled with lots of spooooky, creepy options. Some of my favorite cross-stitch patterns are of Halloween. It can be anything from gothic, Vintage and retro to modern and colorful.
