As the hard copy editions of her 8 cross stitch books are now out of print Cherry has converted these popular designs into downloadable patterns which are available at  CherryParkerDesigns. She continues to design and stitch, recently accepting two commissions in the United Kingdom. 

Cherry is the author of four self published cross stitch books as well as four produced by Reed Publishing. 

She has written "Living with an Alcoholic Husband",  "How Can I Help My Alcoholic Husband?" and  "To My Darling Wife" - a collection of her uncle's letters written at the front line of the Italian Campaign 1943 -1945. 

These books are available in e-book and hard copy format.
