Digital store for stitchers

Downloadable patterns & charts for all ability levels

Cross-stitch patterns created from my own designs & photographs — each pattern is supplied with a detailed colour chart for thread picking and suggestions for canvas type. The default chart uses DMC thread colourways as standard, but you can of course substitute with the brand of your choice. For the accomplished knitter, it is possible to use these charts as knitting patterns.
When you purchase one of these patterns, as soon as payment goes through, you will receive a mail with the pattern download link attached.

Made by Hand

When you buy something from an artist, you are buying more than an object. You are buying hundreds of hours of failures and experiments. You are buying days, weeks and months of frustration and moments of pure joy. You are not only buying a thing, but a piece of heart, a part of the soul, a moment in the life of someone.
