Welcome to the Orthodox Stitcher! Here you will find original, handcrafted cross stitch designs created with the Orthodox Christian in mind. The Orthodox Stitcher is an extension of Fearn Abbey Needleworks, where you will find more original cross stitch designs coming to you from the beautiful Northern Highlands of Scotland. My hope for The Orthodox Stitcher is that this will be a unique and blessed place for Orthodox Christians ~ and indeed, anyone who feels called to visit and stay awhile ~ to develop their creative side, and to honor God. Glory to God for all things!


Much of the art and design you see on this blog is a labor of love and given to you absolutely free. It is my attempt to glorify God and share Christ with those who visit. If you particularly feel called to generosity, though, and wish to give money for anything you take or share, please make your donation to Ancient Faith Radio. AFR is an internet-based Orthodox ministry which is worldwide. They offer 24-hour-a-day, 365-days-a-year talk radio, music radio, podcasts, and blogs, all by and for Orthodox Christians, and for those interested in Orthodoxy. You can visit them HERE. And you can donate right on this blog via Paypal! Thank you so much for giving generously.

Please Give Generously to AFR

I have... at long last... finished Maxim No. 2, and am now working on No. 3! I might have been down, but I'm not out for the count just yet! All that needs done now is to press and finish this, take a better photo, and upload your chart. Hopefully I will have it ready for you by tomorrow.

The past 6 months...well, they have been a challenge, in many ways. There have been changes, losses, grief, all kinds of things. Seasons of life. Exhaustion.

I am currently hobbling around with a stress fracture in my foot and a big, cumbersome "walking boot" to help it heal. Never mind... it will all come right. Also, I am working to refocus and recharge my stitching and artwork. Fearn Abbey Needleworks has a few new designs coming out shortly, and this project is up and running again. 

Please pray that I would stay strong, focused, and consistent!

Blessings to you all, and BIG thank you's to those of you who have been so supportive and patient!
