One day I was
sitting at my computer wishing I could think of something to look for. My
husband always surfs around, but I can't ever seem to get into just looking for
nothing....but I thought maybe, just maybe I could start looking for cross
stitch patterns. So, I did a search, under cross stitch, and of course had tons
of hits, which I honestly didn't expect. Who would have thought that there
would be websites on Cross stitching :) I sure didn't. A lot of the places
I was hitting were about businesses, and how you could order from them, but
being that I'm a cheapskate, I didn't want to have to buy anything.
So, I went ahead and
tried a search for free cross stitch, and they actually had tons of sites for
that too...Heaven for me :) Of course, I had to bookmark all of these
sites...then my computer crashed :( Well, I got smart this time, I started
writing the URLs down in a little index card book.
Now when I have time I enjoy sitting at my computer and going to these
sites, as well as printing out these free patterns. I figure no one can have
too many cross stitch patterns. Of course, there are tons of sites that I
haven't even hit yet, but I will, one day. I figure this is a way for me to get
my creative juices flowing, seeing all the different patterns that are out
I have my favorite sites, these are sites that are just links to all the
WebPages that have free patterns. Now, if I could just find the time to work on
all the new patterns I have. I figure after I get all these free patterns that
I like, I will start looking at the sites that have the patterns for $1 or so.
This way I can spend more on DMC floss and other materials. I am always looking
for a good cross stitch website.
