By now, you know the drill: new month, new pattern! It’s time for some cross stitch updates, too!

floral mug august cross stitch pattern

For years, I’ve done one cross stitch pattern release every month, and to my utter SHOCK, it’s become a really popular segment here at the UDH. I don’t plan to stop doing it. But, the Ugly Duckling House is primarily a blog about home improvement. Demo! DIY! Home repair! Woodworking! You know… that kind of thing. So, the time has come to split off lots of the new cross stitch stuff to where it actually belongs: a home of its own.

Again, and let me repeat: I don’t plan to stop releasing monthly patterns. Don’t panic just yet. ;)

You may have seen in my last post that the UDH now has a “sister” site called NeedleSpark. Where I might have a whole collection of insects, for example, you might see one of them released as a monthly pattern here, but you can get the rest of the collection as a member if you want more. That way, you can get fun little previews as more and more collections become available. It’s win-win and keeps things better organized in my head.

For more info about the launch and how the new site works, you can read all about it here. Over time, I’ll add more and more to the site as either collections or one-off designs, as well as more tutorial-based instruction for the craft itself. Previews for most of the collections are available to see, but you’ll have to be a paid member to actually be able to download them. Items that were previously on the UDH site but are now archived are also available to download over there!

Alrighty, enough of my little self-promotional plug (I worked so hard on it and I’m so proud of the new patterns, I can’t help it!)… onto the free pattern this month!
