Hello and welcome to the Stitching in Crosses and More ...
I have started this blog a few years back when my passion for cross stitch was reborn ... and I have been blogging and stitching ever since.
This is me at my latest graduation (as I have previously graduated with Masters of Mathematics from Durham University)...
In the latest course I have studied the fascinating world of business, accounting and finance. I have graduated with a Distinction and an award from the ICAEW Northern society for being the best student on the Personal and Professional Skills module. My dream is to work by any means in the intriguing world of tax. But for now I remain a part-time librarian/ amateur artist (over 15 exhibitions)/ crafter/ designer.
I manage ILiNi designs, a North East based handmade bags, accessories, and home décor business. You can find us on
The items we make range from luxury and unique leather handbags to small linen makeup bags (some including cross stitch designs!)
I take part in way too many SALs and I am an addict. I cross stitch anything from HAED to traditional embroidery. To get a better idea of what I stitch check out my finishes tab.
Some of the finishes I had ...
But there are many more already done and more to come ...
I will be hosting a giveaway, drawing on the 15th of February 2014. Anyone can enter provided I can contact you, so leave an email or a blog url. I will update this post later on this week with the prize pictures. But for now check out all the other wonderful blogs that are here for the party at 2 Bags Full. Thanks to Vicki for organising this again.
Once the winner is picked he or she can pick what part of the giveaway they want: all or some (and whatever is unwanted will roll over to the next drawing).
