Emma's Cross Stitch

I started stitching myself an asexual pride flag this morning

It’s nice to have a break from my big Exploding TARDIS project, doing something simpler and smaller instead.

I’ve started looking into making my Aida fabric into different colors

Because the selection you have to pick from normally is kinda lame and I have some patterns that’d look cool on other colors.

If I figured out how to do it well, would anyone be interested in me selling precut pieces of colored Aida? Like, I could do stuff in 4x6, 5x7, 12x12, whatever else people tend to use.

Look at all these new wonderful patterns I’ve put into my shops! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we have pride flags! On a serious note, over the course of this past week I have discovered several things about both myself and several of my friends in regards to sexuality, so I went looking on Etsy for pride flag patterns. There were none that I could find, so I decided that I would make them, and have them all on my store for anyone else looking for them. I am only just starting, I have another batch that will be up tomorrow or possibly Saturday, and then after that if I’m still missing the one you want feel free to ask me, I would love to put it up on the store for everyone.

All of the patterns end up being exactly 5x7” on 18 count aida, and they’re all just $2.50! You can buy them right here!

New coupon code!

In honor of it finally starting to warm up here in Texas, with the azaleas starting to bloom around my college campus, I decided to create a new coupon code. From now until the end of May, you can use the code SUPERSPRINGTIME to get 15% off of any purchase that you make!

Plus, keep an eye out, I’m going to be posting some new patterns ASAP…

Some new items will be up on the store this week…

Well, I say this week, but it’s actually really busy so who knows.

But I think y’all will like them!

Kind of a dumb question, but…

I’m going to teach myself embroidery, but what kind of thread do I need to use? I mean, you wouldn’t just use the same kind of thread as for cross stitch, would you?

My friend and I are starting a Doctor Who club at our college.

However, we don’t have a creative name for our club. We don’t want it to be an even slightly obscure reference because we want non-fans to come and join us too.

So I’m gonna do a competition. Send me your best ideas for a club name, and if we use yours I’ll send you a finished product of any cross stitch Doctor Who pattern I sell on my Etsy!

Additional info: we go to SFA (Stephen F. Austin) and our mascot is the Lumberjacks, and it’d be awesome if that could be incorporated.

I’m doing pretty well on Two’s head, which is ridiculously big compared to what the rest of them will be. I’m just so glad I’ve done all the blackwork done! That was so monotonous…

I GOT FINISHED WITH THIS THE OTHER DAY AND TOTALLY FORGOT TO MENTION IT

I’m working on Two now. For those of you who somehow aren’t aware, the amazing lumos5001 made Powerpuff Girl versions of the Doctors, every one from Hartnell to Capaldi and even John Hurt’s Doctor! I want to thank lumos5001 for the amazing work they did with these.

Just so you guys know, I will only be making them for myself, to hang up on the wall of my apartment that I hope to move into one day. I will not be giving them out as gifts, I will not be selling them, and the patterns are not going any farther than my personal and private computer. I would hate to profit from someone else’s work when all I had to do was run it through a computer program.

I thought you guys would appreciate this, but again I can’t stress how much I will not be giving this out.
