Punch Today Hard In The Face – Free Chart!


I’ve been working on some more free cross stitch charts but ran out of one thread colour which has stopped me from finishing them off. I don’t know if you’ve ever tried to get your hands on thread online during a global pandemic, but it’s proved more difficult than I expected.

Anyway, meantime, please have this Punch Today Cross Stitch Chart By Claire Brown XStitch free of charge until I get my shit together. You can download it for free right here.

Or if you prefer to sling a few pennies my way to support my work and keep me in thread, you can buy it with real money here.

And if you’re wondering how to get started stitching, download the Claire Brown XStitch Guide To Modern Cross Stitch.


I’m Claire and I live near Glasgow, in Scotland. I have strong family ties to Cincinnati, too and regard it as my second home. If I had to describe myself in five words, it would be thus: Does. Not. Suffer. Fools. Gladly. I’ve been cross stitching pretty much all my life, but professionally since 2005, first as Miso Funky, then as The Bellwether and now under my own name. I'm known for my witty, sarcastic and occasionally profane typographic designs. My work has been featured in The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Channel 4 and on BBC television as well as numerous media outlets across the globe. At one point, I was kind of a big deal but I mostly just dabble in it these days when I have time. My website is a repositry of cross stitch charts, travel and food blogging and you'll find it at I also love to travel and eat, ideally travelling somewhere great to eat something brilliant. I'm fascinated by social history, particularly the Victorians and will absolutely beat you hands down in a quiz about the Tudors. Dogs are LIFE. I like being in water and have lots of ideas that will never see the light of day but would definitely be a winner on Dragon’s Den/Shark Tank. I love to give people gifts. I! also! overuse! exclamation! marks! sorry!
