I guess that's my lame excuse for not writing in my blog for a whole month, naughty me!
Anyhoo, I've been tinkering a bit with the website so hopefully it's a little bit smarter, a bit easier to get around & it's also got a few new bits.
If you're thinking quit waffling Red, what's this challenge business about in the title? then that's this bit here. Loads of times when I was searching the internet for cross stitch kits to buy (before I started making my own) I'd find myself settling for kits not really what I was after just because I'd spent so long looking that I'd decided to give up & just buy something, anything. Well now, if you have an idea but the design you're after isn't anywhere to be found you can pop over to this page & Challenge Miss Red.
All you have to do is dream up a pattern you want to stitch then fill in the contact form & tell me what you want, and then...*insert drum roll here*...I'll create it! You can describe it in words, you can doodle a design & scan it in or just take a photo & upload that to the form then it'll soon become the cross stitch chart you were looking for.
Once it's done I'll pop up a preview on the website & a link so you can buy it for a bargain price. If you like it & want the chart you buy it, if you decided in the meantime you want something else then you don't have to...but it'll stay on the website available for other people to buy.
A further option you can use the same form for is personalised or bespoke patterns. If you want something that's personal to you & not for just anyone to buy - such as something with your name on or photographs - you can order this in the same way, just describe what you want & check the bespoke box on the form.
So, why not get those cogs whirring & dream up a design, then Challenge Miss Red!
