Stitch Designs

About Nancy

I started Pickle Barrel Designs in 2004 to share my love of cross stitching with other stitchers who might like my design style. Since then, things have taken off and life has also changed in our household when our daughter was born on Mother's Day 2006 and our son was born on Father's Day 2008!

Not nearly as much time for stitching these days, trust me! I hope that my designs continue to amuse and occupy stitchers and I love to hear feedback from those who purchase my patterns on everything from future creative ideas to "wish lists" on what they think I should be doing in either designing or finishing of projects.

Everything stitching! I am a cross stitch designer and on my social networking blogs I will talk about new designs, needlework happenings, current trends and monthly giveaways of charts! I have had published designs in Just Cross Stitch Magazine, their Annual Christmas Ornament Issue, the Halloween Issue as well as a German cross stitch magazine called Kreustitch Motive. Please follow me along this wonderful, fun and stitch worthy journey that I update all the time!
