Our newest cross stitch design is available today!
It's the first in a series I'm calling "Life Lessons" and the first one is Humble Life:
It's stitched on 32 count Weeks Dye Works Parchment with Gentle Arts, Weeks and Classic Colorworks threads.
It's full of things I love and I'm pretty tickled with the warm, happy colors. The first three in this series will be the same size, but they won't use the same colors. The finished size as stitched on 32 count over two is 14 inches wide by 4 7/8 inches tall.
As with all my cross stitch designs, it includes a conversion to DMC and Cosmo threads. Available as a printed paper pattern or a downloadable PDF.

I'm Robin, the dyer and designer behind October House. You've found my blog, where I ramble on about yarn and knitting, stitching and sewing and anything else that catches my fancy!
I love quiet colors, gentle stitches and making things by hand.
