Cross Stitch Love

I would like to introduce you to my cross stitch patterns!

I've been cross stitching for a few years now, and I've dabbled in creating some patterns of my own.

Cross stitching for me is a way to relax. I enjoy minimalist patters that are pretty, but also quick to get through.

There is a story behind each cross stitch pattern I've created. The first pattern I created was the Indianapolis Skyline pattern. I grew up in Indy, and I miss my native city dearly. The skyline pattern is special to me because down town Indianapolis is a special place. Monument circle is a great place to explore, along with all the little shops surrounding it.

Spike Is My Spirit Animal is a nostalgic nod to my childhood. I loved the movie "A Land Before Time" growing up, and Spike is a spirit animal we could all use in these trying times. He's super chill, but always kind and helpful.

I spent my freshman year of college at a small university in Minneapolis, MN. I really enjoyed my time in the artsy city, and when my sister moved there, it inspired me to create a Minneapolis Skyline pattern for my fellow cross stitchers to enjoy.

Dreams Are For Losers came about from an inside joke. My brother-in-law mentioned that he hoped his daughter would pursue a career she would really enjoy doing, and that she would follow her dreams. My exact response was "dreams are for losers", which garnered a lot of laughs.
