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!

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!
Note: Free cross stitch patterns are available for a limited time only based on publish date (right now the time limit is about 2 years and subject to change if this proves to be too difficult to maintain). They are then moved into the Membership Vault and accessible to Cross Stitch Club Members only. So, you may see some previously free patterns on this site that have now been moved to the vault. Please do not email me about your frustrations of not getting access to older free patterns; it’s partly because of the volume of emails that I needed to reevaluate and put some restrictions on the time commitment to continue providing patterns for free.
