Brightside is a gorgeous new cross stitch kit based on the work of artist and illustrator Lisa Congdon. Lisa often uses quilt motifs in her work, incorporating whimsical details and lots of bold, bright color. Her unique personal style and iconography is all over this design – and it's really fun to stitch, too!
If you've never tried cross stitch because a) it looks hard, or b) you had no idea you could find this kind of amazing cross stitch pattern – this kit is for you! Believe it or not, Brightside is a great project for someone just learning, because you can finish each little square pretty quickly (SO satisfying!) and since it's all divided into tidy little blocks, the chart is super easy to follow.
Way back in 2011, budgiegoods set out to create modern, simple needlework kits that would encourage people who had never stitched before to pick up a needle and floss and create something beautiful.
