Time for something a little different with “floral” cross stitch — a little modern watercolor, perhaps?

Every month, I share a free cross stitch pattern, available to blog subscribers. But if you missed the big news, I’ve launched a membership program to share even more patterns! You can check it out and join here.

I’ve been wanting to share this one for SO LONG! If you caught my last post, I mentioned that when I design my cross stitch patterns, I schedule them up to a year in advance. This one was one of the last in a previous batch, which means I’ve waited over a year to share this one with you!

Waiting to share some of the patterns I love is what gave me the idea to create a membership. I don’t want to launch it until I have the next year planned out (so that it all goes smoothly). UPDATE: We’re LIVE over at I’m also working on a full video + post tutorial for an intro to cross stitch as part of my 101 series in case you’ve never tried cross stitching and were eager to try (it’s such a relaxing hobby, especially before bed!).

Let’s get to this month’s pattern, though, shall we? I designed a set of flowers in black and white, but thought a little splash of color would improve things. I have a set of three so far with different kinds of flowers, but this lily with a pink watercolor background is probably my favorite!
