Mother Matriarch Cross Stitch Pattern
The Mother Matriarch cross stitch pattern proclaims to the world how fiercely strong you are, and how you are the anchor of your family around whom everyone else pivots. Are you a completely amazing woman who has surprised yourself with how much you’ve gone through and survived (particularly in the last year)? Or is your mother someone who has held the entire family and her world together with her strength and tenacity? In the past year we’ve had, every day should be Mother’s Day, so celebrate how awesome you are. This badass cross stitch pattern features bling such as beading and metallics to really emphasize how glorious you are, and how your shine lights up your world. If this pattern seems familiar, it’s an adaptation combining the Queen cross stitch pattern and the Queen Bee cross stitch pattern (appropriately enough), with added calligraphic text to proclaim how fierce you are. Never worked with beading or Kreinik metallics? Have no fear, there are beading tutorials and tips for using Kreinik so you have nothing to worry about. You are the Mother Matriarch, you can conquer any challenge that comes your way, and you’ve already proven that. ❤️

Memories of Japan Cross Stitch Pattern
The Memories of Japan cross stitch pattern was featured in Issue 9 (Orient) of XStitch Magazine, and is based on the designer’s own experiences living in Japan for four years. It’s a country of deep traditions in culture and crafts, and amazing places like Miyajima with its famous torii (gate) and crazy monkeys. It’s a country of juxtapositions, from beautiful sights like the incredible cherry blossoms to the cacophany of a Japanese city street at night. Japan is a fascinating country of beauty, colours, and traditions, and a small taste of this is reflected in the Memories of Japan cross stitch pattern.
Thank You Cross Stitch Pattern
Tell those in your life that they matter, that you see them, that you thank them. Whether it’s your child’s teacher, your local shop owner who goes above and beyond, first responders who keep you safe, or the healthcare workers that keep you and your family healthy, they all appreciate a sincere thank you so deeply. This pattern can be adjusted to allow space to add in a name as shown in the images. An alphabet is not included in this pattern, but there are several alphabet charts available to purchase (the Backstitch Alphabets chart in particular would be great for this pattern, as the pattern itself is quite small at 4″ high by 6″ wide on 14 count). This pattern is also perfect for using up bits of leftover floss, as it’s only two sets of colours (a lighter and a darker of each) which can be easily changed to your taste. And because this pattern is smaller, it’s easy to stitch up multiple times, to say thank you to all those in your life who you appreciate so much.
Face That Cares Cross Stitch Pattern
Have you ever been asked an incredibly stupid question, or just keep getting pestered and pestered and pestered and you cannot bring yourself to muster any cares anymore? In case these scenarios are ringing a bell, the Face That Cares cross stitch pattern is a perfect “reminder” to anyone in your home about your general attitude when they come to you with their trivial woes, or it’s an “ideal” gift to say you care … 😂 The Face That Cares design was inspired by the designer’s childhood in a beautiful 70-acre orchard in British Columbia’s Okanagan region, with this idyllic setting punctured by her father’s constant cheeky retort to her and her brother, “Does this look like a face that cares?!?” Fun fact, he STILL says this to family and friends… 😂 This cross stitch pattern was featured in Issue 12 (Noir) of XStitch Magazine.
