Russian Chicken Pattern

1871 cross stitch pattern from a book on Russian folklore. Quick and easy little one-color pattern of a stylized bird with a dramatic wing and tail.

Cross Stitch Bug Pattern

This embroidery pattern may be over 100 years old but its appeal is timeless. This cross stitch bug pattern is easy to stitch and quite pretty when done.

Cross Stitch Background 1

This is the first of what will hopefully be many repeating cross stitch background patterns that I will be sharing with everyone. This one was originally designed by Therese de Dillmont.

Vintage Cross Stitch Alphabet 2

Our second cross stitch alphabet pattern is for another vintage design. It stitches up somewhat large which would make it better suited for monograms and crafts than a traditional cross-stitch sampler.

Christmas Embroidery Alphabet Pattern

A wonderful vintage Christmas embroidery pattern – a full set of the alphabet (well, one with only two letters missing, anyway) that you could use for all sorts of Christmas items – embroidered towels, Christmas ornaments, greeting cards, the list is virtually endless.
