Be the Villain Cross Stitch Pattern
Feel like getting a little stabby? Maybe the “Be The Villain” cross stitch pattern can help you out… 😂 When people ask me what I do, I often say, “I help people relax by stabbing something 20,000 times.” This dark humour reminded me of many villains, and I was inspired by the cool elegance of Bond villains in particular. Featured in Issue 5 of XStitch Magazine, “Be the Villain” represents how our outer well-groomed appearance can mask our darker side.

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.
Astrology Cross Stitch Pattern
Whether astrology is your thing or not, this humorous cross stitch pattern is sure to generate laughs. With vivid blues and purples and sparkling metallics for a little extra glam, Astrology is a really fun pattern to stitch up for yourself or as a gift. The twelve zodiac signs are stitched in gold metallic floss around the perimeter of the design, framing the cheeky quote. This pattern was featured in Issue 3 of XStitch Magazine in the Space issue. If you can’t have a crystal ball to predict your future behaviour, you might want to use this pattern to excuse whatever “mischief” you get into….
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. :)
