An Etsy shop you really should visit ... and a gift idea!
Above is a somewhat blurry photo of a lucite trivet with cross-stitch insert that I made for my tea-loving daughter one time. I want to tell you about a wonderful Etsy shop that features cross-stitch designs. I'm not going to try and show you photos from the shop (that's why I chose to use one of my own photos), but if you enjoy counted cross stitch, or if you know someone who does, you need to hurry on over to Tiny Modernist.
I am smitten with Cheryl's designs. I love seeing other people's cross stitch projects on linen and so on, but they are not for me. Some of the designs from Tiny Modernist that I have looked at are done on 14-count Aida and are such fun designs in pretty colors! Others are done on linen, but an Aida substitution is possible.
There are some nice Christmas designs, like this set of four Vintage Christmas signs which are about 4 inches square and are very fun designs.
Even though this is a Canadian shop, there are no worries about shipping since the charts are available as instant downloads for personal use. The designs may be stitched as gifts -- or, and this brings me to my gift idea -- the charts may also be given as gifts.
I plan on giving a couple of these charts as gifts -- I will not say which ones, just in case the intended recipients happen to read here -- and I plan to give the Aida and required floss along with the charts.
Here is an example of one of the cute summer designs: All the Fun of the Fair. Isn't it so cute? There's a baking sampler that I adore, sweet sayings in hoops, pretty seasonal samplers and much more.
I love this shop! Enjoy your visit!
