Create Stitch Diagrams on a Mac Using Pages

I've written up a brief description on how to use Pages (the Apple word processor program) to create stitch diagrams and posted it to this blog as one of the tabs above.  It's hard to be really specific as each version of Pages changes where items are located and sometimes calls them something else but with some experimentation this should help you create basic stitch diagrams on your Mac.

Renaissance Santa (Renaissance Designs and Patricia Sone)

Mary shows off her delightful Santa pillow, stitched using Patricia Sone's stitch guide.  Your favorite shop can get the canvas from Renaissance Designs.  I think you'll have to contact Patricia directly for the guide.
