Order without logging in!

Many people these days prefer not to use a Google account, so with this in mind, it is now possible to order without logging in.  However, this means that no record of your orders will be available to you on the site, and that your patterns will be emailed to you instead. Unless you say otherwise, your patterns will be sent to your paypal mail address. If you prefer another account, please be sure to make a note or send an email. Be sure to keep your paypal emails since they will have the record of your orders.

Thanks for visiting The Floss Box!!

Fiona Cross Stitch Pattern

Hi and thanks for the tutorial feedback here and on FB and anywhere else. It is good to know they are useful. I always have more ideas, so it's just a matter of picking the good ones out for writing.

This week I have created Fiona!
Click here to find the Fiona cross stitch pattern in the store.

I created Fiona by request from a customer. She wanted a design to match the Lily, Brooke and Morgan series. It's been awhile since I made those, so I just couldn't match the style now. The house is inspired by the Captain Bailey House in Brownville, Nebraska, a historic river town.


The Floss Box tutorials are now back on line! You can visit the tutorials page here.

I have to say these are back primarily thanks to one person. I had these on my old site for over two years and in that time, I didn't get even one message or thanks regarding them. I believed that no one ever looked at them, so I decided to dump them when I made my  new site. In fact, I dumped my whole idea of an online stitching magazine because it was a lot of work for practically no feedback or appreciation, which is a shame in a way because I still have the thought it would be cool, but it's way too much work to do alone if I feel like I am just filling cyber space with stuff no one really cares about.

My message here may sound a little "angry", but it isn't anger that I feel when I think  about it, it's more like disappointment (text can be so bad at conveying the deeper meaning). I am enthusiastic about embroidery, I will gladly share, but I cannot share in a void.

Anyways, one person, and only one person sent a message wondering if I would ever bring them back. So here they are available once again. Perhaps the list will increase, but I am not sure it will without something from any readers that I may have.

France Cross Stitch Pattern

I paused from the state patterns to make a design honoring France! This one was a little extra challenge for me because of the complicated building, but as always, I learn something with each design I make.
The castle in the background is base on a real building called Chateau Fillemonteix. I haven't ever been to France myself, but the pictures show a beautiful country with a truly fascinating history! This desing was fun and who can resist an old castle?

You can find the France Cross Stitch at The Floss Box, just click the name!

I have finally figured out a way to implement sales into my store that I am satisfied with. My great plan is to mark different patterns on sale each week. So it's a good idea to check in from time to time and see what is on sale!  Click to follow the link to the sales section at The Floss Box!
