Specializing in puns, when I'm not acting as a graduate student I aim to bring quality cross stitch patterns that are modern, funny, and sometimes thought-provoking. Every design available for purchase is test-stitched and adjusted throughout this process to ensure quality. I would not publish a design I would not stitch myself. I hope you enjoy the fruit of these efforts as much as I have enjoyed the process.
Overwhelmed and occupied with graduate school, I taught myself how to stitch in February 2016. I guess you could say I'm a newcomer to the age-old craft. The first time I stitched I did so for almost 24 consecutive hours. I was hooked, and quickly found a way to express myself in imagery. I could even come out of a Netflix binge with something to hang on my wall, which, as someone who had been occupied with lines in my CV, became incredibly satisfying.
I soon became bored with the designs that were available and needed to stitch what was in my head. Graph paper became cumbersome; finding the center of the stitch was nigh impossible and did not portray a good size representation. That's when I discovered design software and I've been designing ever since.
