Paths to Love Blackwork Pattern
The Paths to Love blackwork pattern was featured in Issue 7 (the Love issue) of XStitch Magazine, and is inspired by the many paths we have to find and nurture love every day. Many people assume “romantic” when you say love, but it’s so much more. Whether it’s your friends, your family, your co-workers, your community as a whole, your pets, your career, or your hobbies, our lives are filled with opportunities to find love. This blackwork pattern is designed to inspire you to think of all the avenues to love in your life that have been neglected, or need to be re-explored. And if you’ve never done blackwork before, have no fear — it’s just full cross stitches and backstitch. 🙂

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.

And if you’re stuck working from home doing Zoom call after Zoom call, just make sure this is strategically placed in the background, all your coworkers will be *super* impressed… 😂 This cheeky pattern was featured in Issue 10 (“Mixtape Vol 2”) of XStitch Magazine.
