13 Killer Cross Stitch Patterns

HERE COMES HALLOWEEN! HERE COMES HALLOWEEN! HOLLA-HOLLA-HOLLA-HOLLA-HOLLA-HOLLA-HALLOWEEN!!!

I love Halloween guys! You get to play dress up, eat candy, and decorate everything. For me it truly is the most wonderful time of the year. Also, all the weird and creepy craft ideas in my head get to see the light of day without it seeming as depraved if it were any other month. I found 13 (obvs!) of the scariest cross stitch patterns the interwebs has to offer…plus 7 not so scary ones in case you are a little squeamish.

Oh and in case you’re wondering, I make pretty much all of these using Canva and Unsplash. Try it out so I can see what you made.

“We’re all terrified…”

I’m a huge fan of Elizabeth Gilbert so it should be no surprise that I listened to the entirety of her podcast, Magic Lessons, in one day. The whole thing was amazing, but the last episode set me off. Gilbert’s “no bullshit” conversation with Brené Brown made me cry (literally), laugh, and scream out in joy. No really, I was yelling at the appleTV as though they could hear me. But it’s almost like they could hear me, because every thing they said spoke directly to me and my situation and my soul!

ANYWAY, I made a graphic using canva and unsplash with one of the quotes I wrote down from their chat (and I wrote down A LOT of them, so be prepared to see more!)

 

We're all terrified

Hope this inspires you to set aside your fear and go make something already!

Allons-y!
