I was born in late 1965. In 1970 I made my first bit of handicraft; a cross stitch piece. Nobody told me how, I just saw my Mum do it and only know I did because my Mum saved the piece.
It looked awful. Things have improved since then, and you can now see fresh and future examples on Instagram. Same tag – ManiMariae.
This site has a few other subsites: Patchwork patterns and cross stitch. The patchwork patterns are mainly based on … math. Yup, that’s right. They illustrate things like geometry, calculus, doubling, and logarithms. It’s nerdy! Most of them are also non-block patterns.
The cross stitch subsite only has a single pattern at the moment. I shall be adding to both these subsites as I finish more examples to show.
