Inbox: From Melissa

I’m sharing this touching email from you, with Melissa’s permission, because it stopped me in my tracks. xoxo

————-
My name is Melissa and I live in Utah. I am 41 years old with an overabundance of serious chronic health problems.

I am going into hospice in about a month. My friends wanted some pictures of me before I entered hospice. I asked for “prop” ideas of what they will remember of me. Several friends said cross stitching…. So the attached is what I chose to use.

I thought you’d like to know that your cross stitch patterns etc are my favorite ones.

Thank you for bringing a smile to my face as I make my cross stitch gifts.

Free PDFs from HotelTonight

Last year, HotelTonight ran an ad campaign with several cross stitch pieces in hoops that everyone loved! I couldn’t believe these pieces were created by a very talented graphic artist in San Francisco, I’ve never seen anyone do this so well – and I’ve sure seen a lot of people try. 

This year, HotelTonight asked me to create PDF patterns from three of their favorite ads from the campaign–it was pretty fun to do something completely in reverse from how I usually do it. I’m hosting these three patterns on my site on behalf of HotelTonight and they’re all FREE! Pretty cool, huh?

Consider these a little hint that your holiday guests (or you!) might be more comfortable in a hotel this season. HotelTonight’s app makes booking a room fun–not complicated! 

This project is in partnership with HotelTonight.
