To Do Tuesday- Cross Stitch Pattern Review and GiveawayCLOSED


Getting to know Tracy (Design Lab 443)

Where are you from? And a little bit about you

I live in a charming town called Webster Groves, about a 15 minute drive from downtown St. Louis. I love the area, most people walk their kids to school and there are a lot of locally owned shops. I have been a freelance Graphic Designer for 9 years, which lets me stay home with my kids. I love to blog, I think of it as a journal, I have a bad memory so this will help me remember all the little things I don’t want to forget about my life. I love to make things, everything… sew, quilt, paint, embroidery, scrapbook, craft, cook. It all feeds my soul!

How did you decide the name for your shop?

My graphic design business is Design Lab 443 so I just used the same name. The “443” is my house number.

How did you learn to embroider?

Self taught through the internet, I love the internet!

What items do you most enjoy making and why?

I love making plushy friends, I love to think of them as becoming a treasured toy and a wonderful childhood memory.

Anything else you would like us to know?

I recently made two fun youtube stop motion videos featuring my plushy friends. It’s another new hobby for me, take a look here….

My Thoughts
I love to cross stitch. I am not very good at it so please don’t judge my stitches. But it has been a hobby of mine since I was a little girl. One day I just decided that I was going to teach myself and so I did. I love Tracy’s pattern. It is nice and easy for a newbie to learn with, or if you already know what you are doing than it is fun and cutesy for you to make for yourself or a loved one. Cross Stitch patterns are not the only wonderful item that Tracy has! She also sales Plushy animals, Paper Items, Pillows, and Soft Sculptures! Tracy’s items are unique and kid friendly and she has many items that can be used for kids of any age! I encourage all of you to check out her wonderful shop. I know that if you are in need of that specialized baby shower gift or a gift for a young loved one she has just the right item for you!
