I learned to cross stitch when I was young, but like so many others I had stepped away from needle arts only to return later in life.  Now it is my great pleasure to design cross stitch patterns as The Blue Flower.  I draw my inspiration from my pets, my own history, and the vast spectrum of the natural world.  I hope that the designs express the great joy I experience in many aspects of stitching.  I appreciate the opportunity to put a few stitches of my own into the long tapestry of needlework history, and I hope some of these designs may become part of your unique creative endeavours.

Happy Stitching,
