Welcome to the world of Mr X Stitch.
It’s an attempt to funk up the world of cross stitch a bit, and stems from my frustration at the lack of decent patterns for men, and for people with a bit of style.
I’ve had enough of country cottages and kittens playing with balls of wool. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure they bring joy and happiness to a lot of people. Just not me.
So I decided to do something about it, and now I have an etsy shop selling graffiti patterns and supercar patterns.
I’ve also had a few pieces exhibited at a local gallery, and randomly produce things that take my fancy.
But more on that later.
I really dig cross stitch and want other people to enjoy it, and if I can help by producing patterns of things that interest people, then so be it.
So let’s get on with it.
