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.

rsz_wham

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.

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.

The pattern above is my newest creation, lovingly called Halloween Library, and it can be downloaded here.
