This is where I log craft projects, ideas, products, materials and sources including links. I'll also document sources of inspiration. I love crafts, including knitting, quilting, scrapbooking, stained glass crafting and others. My specialties were knitted baby caps and glycerin soaps I call "Gemsoaps." Now, I'm into embroidery and beading.

Diamond Cross-stitch Pattern

I chose to stitch the diamond pattern from the upper side of this "Mountain Landscape" design from the Cross-stitchers Club because it echoed the weave of the towel (from Charles Craft.)

While stitching the basic outline, I realized the potential of the pattern! I could stitch a tiny heart or flower in the center of each diamond, OR, I could fill in the diamonds to make a checkered, gingham or argyle design! Also, can you see the heart? This design contains lots of great elements. I think I'll be using it alot!
