Today I wanted to introduce a new monthly subscription box I’ve been loving recently. The Geeky Little Stitcher cross stitch club from Jess, based in Exeter. It’s kawaii themed and each month is a based around a different cute foody character. The first box was released in April with an avocado theme, May’s was burgers, June is cake and July’s (now available) is doughnuts – you can see the pattern emerging I’m sure.
The box costs £9.99 plus £3.50 UK p&p and includes one main pattern, including all the threads you need, an embroidery hoop, aida cloth and a needle. The patterns are bold and contemporary but simple so it’s good even for beginners like me.
You will also receive a second surprise pattern and themed extras. These are a fabulous touch as the box is already great value. I love the ‘B is for Burger’ pattern (this would make a lovely unusual addition to a kids bedroom). The burger fabric swatch is dead handy for keeping needles safe and I always have room for cute stickers and address labels. And sweets, always room in my belly for them!
WIP shot. I worked on the pattern for a couple of hours a night for 2 or 3 weekends. I’m pretty slow but I’m sure my stitching will speed up as I tackle more patterns.
The finished product! I think I like it without the hearts as well, but let me know if you disagree! I can’t decide.
Can’t wait to get started on the next one. You can sign up here and check out Jess’ other designs as well.

This is so cute! I’m terrible at cross stitching, mainly because of the counting thing… Think I should still try again though and this is a great idea!

Same – I draw all over the pattern so that I can keep a track of where I am. I really struggled with a very complicated pattern I got a while ago but I found this was much easier.
I’ve only just discovered your blog through Kel, via Chloe New Girl in Toon! I am so taken with the idea of a cross stitch monthly box❤ I love cross stitching but never know what to stitch! At £9.99, this looks like fun and great value! xx
