It’s that time of the year again here in the UK – school is almost out but you haven’t got anything for your kid’s teacher. How does it manage to sneak up on us every year?! I’m actually organised this … Continue reading
I love designing cross stitch charts for my customers and I love it even more when I receive a photo of their completed creation. So, here are just four of my favourite photos I received during 2016…
Most are from my personalized Name Sampler & Wedding Sampler range with the ‘Nerdy’ Chemical Element stitch available to buy & download straight from my Etsy Shop along with lots of other quirky stitches.

- Moscovium and symbol Mc, for the element 115,
- Tennessine and symbol Ts, for the element 117, and

These are currently under consultation with ratification due in November 2016.
So, it was also time for me to update my popular Periodic Table of Elements chart on Etsy.

Many customers buy the chart and use it to make up their own words for smaller projects instead of stitching the entire thing – a whopping 450 x 240 stitches – and the new element names help a little with this. Moscovium would be useful for ‘Mc’ names and Tennessine gives you a ‘Ts’ to finish words such as RaTs and FArTs…
I hope you enjoy this new addition to the shop and there are more to come shortly.
