A Cross Stitchin' Addiction
Anna's Cross Stitch Projects, Patterns and Links

Listed below are some personal cross stitch web sites. Some have information such as color charts, finishing techniques and stitching tools, along with pictures of completed patterns. Most also have free original charts that can be downloaded. The bold link is to the personal home page and the italicized link leads to any free charts that might be available at the site. Sometimes this link is the same as the home page link, especially if the site contains more than one page of charts that you're only able to access from the home page. Please don't visit a site just for the free patterns! Take a look at the entire site and if possible e-mail a message or sign a guestbook before you leave.

I stitched the above pattern years ago. I'm not even sure where I got the graph! I think it was just a small kit that someone gave to me. Designs like this are nice and simple, don't use too many colors, and are easy to frame and hang in any room in the house. They also make great gifts!
