This rainbow-hued pattern reminds us all that it’s important to be kind! Perfect for a nursery. <3

Ellis is getting a little older now (8 months, wow!), and he’s starting to recognize words. So, I thought this pattern might be kind of nice, considering that we find “be kind” is a phrase we think we’ll be using often (so far, we’re using it most often as he learns to pet the dog rather than grab a whole handful of her fur). It will go great in his nursery when I finish stitching it myself. Also, given that it’s the beginning of Pride Month, a colorful pattern seemed like a fitting release!

Frequently Used Cross Stitch Supplies

Another update: I have finally, FINALLY, written a quick start guide for beginners to learn how to cross stitch! I’ve been wanting for the LONGEST time to create a really in-depth guide with videos, launch a fundamentals class, and share all of my tips and tricks. But after months and months of good intentions (and no results), I admitted to myself that it was going to take time that I don’t really have for the foreseeable future and I need to be focusing on other projects (so many updates, so little time!). The next best thing I could do right now was to get something, anything, out there for beginners to start with. So, until a more complete guide is written, beginners can start here for the basic-basics and give it a shot. More pictures are being added as I complete new patterns and have the opportunity to take tutorial-style pictures as I work. For now, thanks for your patience, and I hope you find the tutorial helpful!
