Tiny Modernist

"Cross Stitch is such an amazing hobby, and it’s one of the easiest types of needlepoint to learn. There is something so rewarding about seeing a pattern come to life as you work. My mom, grandmother, great- grandmother, and several of my great aunts stitched traditional needlepoint, petit point, and cross stitch. I think that subconsciously it was their work that influenced me to take up Cross Stitch. I really love the detail, colors and sheer amount of time that go into each piece, and I love imagining those ladies stitching in the evenings, listening to an old radio program and sipping tea from a little flowery teacup. I like keeping that tradition alive, but modernizing it, too- with cool patterns that have simple, clean lines, graphic colours, with retro-modern and pop-culture influences. Hopefully, the patterns you find here at Tiny Modernist will inspire you to start stitching, or encourage those of you who are already stitchers". Cheryl
