I'm hoping that my Saturday Share posts are showing what can be done with cross stitch for anyone who thinks it's a hobby for old ladies who like to stitch flowers. This week's share couldn't be further away from that picture!.
A visit from the frog

Even though I now only stitch my own designs I'm not immune from a visit from the frog - and it came hopping by this weekend.

This week's Saturday Share had me 'feline' confused until I solved the problem by picking two of the designs on Cross Stitch Showcase.

There are some weeks where I see a design and just know it has to be shared... this is one of those weeks.

To make up for the fact I haven't been updating this blog nearly as often as I intended to (the day job keeps interfering...) I thought I'd post three designs this week. It still hasn't been easy to choose though!

Loads of stunning designs on Cross Stitch Showcase this week and I had a really hard time choosing something - I'm sure I have this problem every other week!
Saturday Share (on a Sunday)

Clearly, my memory is not what it was. I could have sworn I did this yesterday, I definitely sat down at the computer to do it so I obviously got sidetracked along the way... on the premise better late than never, here's this week's Saturday Share.
How much is too much?

Working out how much to charge for charts and finished items is always a difficult business.

There was one design the the Facebook page Cross Stitch Showcase that wowed me this week. If I weren't so busy with my own designs this one would have made it to my stash pile.
A feet of cross stitching
8/29/2014 10:13:02 AM
The frog paid a visit last night. I moaned and cursed and spluttered like mad - many will know the feeling. But this morning I read the story of Yang Pei and it's sort of put the frog into perspective.

When one of the week's themes on the Facebook page Cross Stitch Showcase is flowers I always groan because I know it will be really difficult to choose just one design to share.
The things you learn...

It's amazing what a browse around the internet can reveal...

Another week where it's been difficult to reduce the number of gorgeous patterns out there down to just one but here goes...
A bit like buses...
8/14/2014 3:53:50 PM
In England we have a saying 'you wait forever for a bus and then three come along at once' - it feels a bit like that with cross stitch designs.

One of the things I love about cross stitch - and art in general - is how one word can be interpreted in so many different ways.
The late, late Saturday Share

Ooops - I was so busy finishing off some Christmas designs this weekend that I never got around to switching on the laptop, let alone posting anything. So, on the principle better late than never, here's the Saturday Share...
Jingle bells
7/29/2014 10:08:35 AM
Yes, really, as England has a summer I am designing and stitching Christmas designs. It all feels so wrong...

As I missed last week (technology problems, thankfully all fixed now) I thought I'd do two shares this week. It's been a bit difficult as there are loads of new designers on the Cross Stitch Showcase page but I hope you'll agree it's been worth it!
Nearly finished another one!
7/16/2014 8:08:21 PM
I'm not quite sure what's happened as the day job has been really busy and, as I keep saying, I'm not the fastest stitcher in the world but I should finish another one tonight!
Cost of charts
7/14/2014 11:25:49 AM
A few weeks ago I posted a link to an excellent blog post by Golden Circle Designs about the cost of kits - well, now she's followed it up with a post about the cost of charts.
