Cross Eyed Cricket

One cold winter morning after a grueling night driving through a Michigan blizzard, Vicki Hastings, of Cross-Eyed Cricket, awoke to the sight of her sister’s handwork, a delicate winter scene unfolding upon snowy white linen stretched on a frame by the bed. She was intrigued, and then inspired, and then in love. Vicki's first cross stitch efforts were of Danish design using Flower Thread and linen. The rhythmic, satisfyingly ordered stitches brought her, as a young mother, such peace. Now, when she is designing, it is thoughts of the hands that will stitch her work that brings her that same pleasure and satisfaction. Vicki feels blessed by her connection to those hands and hope the blessing is returned many fold.
