One of our new patterns this month was a suggestion by Jen in Sydney, Australia -- The Fighting Temeraire Tugged to her Last Berth to be Broken Up - J. M. W. Turner (shown below). We've sent her a copy of the pattern as a thank-you for her suggestion, and we'll say it again here: Thank you, Jen!

We've added a tutorial on signing your cross stitch! It explains why you should sign and date your work, how to plan your text in either backstitch or cross stitch, choosing a floss color, and shows examples of different types of signatures. You can follow the link above, or look for Tutorials under the Solutions tab on our website.
There are a few related topics we'll be addressing in the weeks to come: how to backstitch, resources for needlework alphabets, and how to create your own!
