Cross Stitch Addict

Hi, I'm Alison, chief designer and owner of Country Cross Stitch Kits ( and I am a 100% confirmed cross stitch addict! I know I am not the only one out there, so hopefully if you are an addict too you will enjoy my blog.

Location: Norfolk, United Kingdom

I am lucky enough to have been a designer / artist for most of my adult life. I have always had a passion for fabric crafts and for quite a few years produced paintings, mainly of flowers, on pieces of silk using dyes. My main passion has always been cross stitching however and a couple of years ago I took the plunge and set up Country Cross Stitch Kits. The rest, as they say, is history and here I am still adding new designs and trying to build my business. The best part of all of this is meeting so many lovely people who share a love of cross stitch. I hope you enjoy my blog, feel free to add any comments and have fun!

FREE Cross Stitch Pattern - 'The Diet Begins Tomorrow'

Hello all,

Here is a new free pattern for all of my blog readers, it seemed appropriate for this time of year although perhaps it should be 'Life's too short to diet!' - what do you think?

The pattern is 2.4" x 2.4" (when stitched on 14 / 28 count fabric) and uses 5 colours. As with all our patterns it contains:

  • Cross stitch chart

  • Separate back stitch chart

  • Printed thread organiser

  • List of threads required with both DMC and Anchor numbers

  • List of thread lengths and finished sizes when stitched on 11/22, 14/28, 16/32 and 18/36 count fabrics

  • Colour picture of finished design

  • Full cross stitching instructions

Hi Outi,

LOL - You obviously read minds as well as cross stitch! When I put this post on the blog I almost included a line about this making a great fridge magnet :)

Diets - who needs them?

Happy stitching!

Hi, I've made this up into a coaster to remind myself not to eat a biscuit everytime I have a cup of tea. Hope it works. Maggie.

Hi Maggie,

Don't forget - you can have a biscuit today, the diet doesn't start untill tomorrow! Anyway, I won't tell anyone if you don't :)

Hope you enjoy using your coaster, thanks for the comment and happy stitching!
