I found ;) cross stitch can be so much fun and original! Some persons out there turned a very traditional way of embroidery into fantastic art pieces, design pieces – also using some unique motifs. Besides being an addict on hand embroider I think one of the thing’s that really catched my attention into cross stitch was when I discovered the work of Eline Pellinkhof – she’s a designer and she made the most beautiful and original large scale cross stitch inspired, a mural on her bedroom (you can see the images on her interview at Bloesem blog).
And about the work of Kimberly Scola (her blog chez sucre chez)
Also in love by these wood pendants made by Susan Fitzgerald (from the red gate stitchery blog). Great christmas present, right? ;)
