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. 🙂

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.
Live Free Cross Stitch Pattern
We all have days where we want to escape from the noise and stress of the world, and mermaids are often seen as a symbol of grace and untamed freedom. Featured in Issue 6 of XStitch Magazine, the Live Free mermaid cross stitch pattern is a reminder to take a deep breath and let the stillness of the ocean depths inspire some peace in your day.
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.
