I was checking out the recent "likes" on the Seacoast Modern Quilt Guild Facebook page and clicked on a new member's name only to discover that she had an Etsy shop called Red Gate Stitchery. Moreover, I love everything in her shop! I wanted to share her work with you.
Susan designs modern cross stitch patterns and kits, some are jewelry and some are home dec items, using fresh materials like leather, bamboo and acrylic. She sells both finished pieces and kits for those of us who like to stitch! After much deliberation, I ordered this kit. I am not normally a heart person but I liked the small size and the leather/neutral thread combo. I just finished up my necklace today!
Susan also sells just the necklace blanks so you can design your own cross stitch design. On the back of the package, there is a diagram that you can use to create your design before you start stitching. I am going to try to come up with my own design next and when I do, I am going to stitch it up using a bamboo pendant!
I hope you will check out Susan's shop! I am looking forward to seeing her at our meeting next month. I'm hoping we can convince her to come share her projects with us at one of our future meetings.
