It’s a movement. There’s no doubt about it.
Cross stitch designers have been sharing freebie patterns, most surrounding the theme of “be well and stitch”, during these most unusual of times. You can find them by searching the hashtag #bewellandstitch and there seems to be more and more each day. Big, well known designers and smaller, not-as-well-known designers – it is amazing to see so many have jumped on this bandwagon.
For days now, as more and more of these designs have passed through my view on Instagram and Facebook, I’ve been playing around with all sorts of ideas in my head…what could I contribute. So many wonderful designs are already out there. So, I offer up something a little different. A blackwork design. I’m calling it “Just Stitch.”
Perhaps it will appeal to some of you. You can download the pattern by clicking here: juststitch
We stitchers are So Very Lucky that we have this hobby/craft/art/passion to help us through these most unsettling of times. For so many of us, there is just so much relief when we can sit down and JUST STITCH.
