Introduction

I have a lot of cross stitch patterns and kits that I will probably never use. I created this new blog to allow other stitchers to see what I have and trade me for something else that I might actually stitch. I will label every post as a pattern or a kit (or fabric or thread). I will label every pattern by designer and include a picture of the finished pattern or kit. If you are interested in anything on this blog, send me an email with what you would like to trade. I don't have a specific wish list, but I am always interested in sheep patterns and patterns by Bent Creek, Lizzie*Kate, and other contemporary designers. I am not interested in anything religious or Disney. Let's Make A Deal!
