ABOUT CREATIVE CROSS STITCH
Where is all started...
Hi, I'm Tiffany and I have been a keen cross stitcher (and crafter) for the last 15 years or so. As a child I enjoyed the odd cross stitch or embroidery but like most people by the time I was in my 20s I hadn't picked up a needle in years. Unfortunately in my 20s I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis - an Inflammatory Bowel Disease which meant lots of hospital stays and recuperating at home. During one of these hospital stays, a very thoughtful friend gave me a little cross stitch kit for something to pass the time and I quickly remembered how much I liked to cross stitch and how therapeutic it was. Like many cross stitchers I found it hard to find contemporary patterns, so I started making my own. The first thing I made was a simple linen cushion cover with three hares.
What I love most about cross stitching is that anyone can do it - even complete novices can easily produce a lovely piece that they can display in their home. I hope you find something you love, as I have really loved designing them!
