Tangled Threads and Things

Cross stitch with a whole lot of love and a little bit of mess

About Us

Hi! We’re Rhona Norrie and Eirinn Norrie, a cross stitch mother/daughter duo - originally from Scotland and now living in the USA. Our designs have been featured in cross stitch magazines around the world.

If you’ve visited our website before, you’ll notice that things look really different. Based on feedback we received from stitchers, our new site will make make it easier to download any files we share and for you to find content. There are no tabs for you to navigate - simply scroll down. However, we’re just beginning to rebuild, so please give us some grace as we work through the process! You can find more information below about our Stitch Alongs, cross stitch charts, and stitchy videos. Thanks for stopping by!

Stitch Alongs (SALs)

The Blackwork Stitch Along

(Finished June 2023)

A 27-tile blackwork piece. You can download all the tiles here and stitch at your leisure.

Our NEW Stitch Along - Coming late September 2023

A low-commitment stitch along for us all to enjoy. The stitch along will begin in late September 2023 - stay tuned for more information!

Affordable (Adorable) Charts

You can purchase Rhona’s charts on her Etsy as PDF downloads. The latest design is this cute winter fox - isn’t he adorable?!

My (Eirinn) personal favorites from Rhona’s Etsy include her retro caravan bundle (perfect to stitch during the summer!), her highland cow designs, and her farmyard animals.

You may also know that we previously had a Patreon account where you could subscribe and receive charts each month. Currently, our Patreon is on ‘pause’ and we plan to resume it in the autumn.

If you have any specific charts that you’d love to see designed, let us know and if we can make it happen, we will!

How to wrap an embroidery hoop using ribbon! It’s a beautiful way to finish your cross stitch piece, and very easy to do. We love finishing our cross stitch projects this way and adding a little bow on top. Here’s how! (Note: We will have new stitchy videos coming soon!

That’s it for now. We will update this webpage soon so please visit back. Have a lovely rest of your week!
