In Stitches

When I was young I took up counted cross-stitch. I made a few folksy gifts for my siblings and began some more ambitious projects that never found their way to completion.

Recently, I found my old cross-stitch bag in my fabric bin and got looking through it. I found some of my old projects and decided that I needed to pick up my old hobby again.

I started by modifying a few patterns from others online and then I started creating my own patterns to be used in the shop.
I really like the way cross-stitch looks and I'm enjoying working with my floss and needle again. Sometimes life comes full circle like that.

So far Sunshine & Lolli features two styles of hair clips using cross-stitch:
The Ava Leigh and The Elise.

I'm adding a third style just in time for Easter. Here's a sneak peak at "Bunny Love."
Have a Happy Day!


  1. Very cute designs! Bunny Love will be perfect for Easter! I love cross-stitch -- primarily do it for a charitable organization but I'd like to incorporate some into my shop. Someday =)
