Many authors say if you can’t find the book you want to read, you have to write it. When I can’t find the pattern I want to stitch, I design it. It has taken me years to get to a place in life where I can create patterns and make them available to other stitchers and embroiderers.
Thus I take revenge on lost time and missing patterns and offer you The Count of Many Stitches: Cross Stitch Patterns for Readers and Revenge Seekers, named for the classic novel of revenge and one of my favorite books, The Count of Monte Cristo.
This long dreamt-of website and Etsy shop bear patterns I have always wanted to stitch but could never find. As a lifelong reader, I include with my patterns Recommended Reading: titles of favorite books that complement the pattern’s subject.
My hope is that you find a pattern here that you have always wanted to stitch and a book that changes your life.
