Design Inspiration: Cross-stitching



Cross-stitching...something I think every girl has attempted at least once.  I have always LOVED tedious things...purely for the challenge of it.  But I banned cross-stitching from my life when I was 11, knowing I would never think upon it again.  I had been  attempting a ballet shoe pattern and thought I was doing famously...until I wasn't,  and I realized I hadn't been doing well for some time.  I didn't have the energy to undo and redo, so I pitched it, vowing to never pick it up again.

"Never" is a very long time.  And I have found the inspiration to give cross-stitching one more chance.  It all started with this door embroidered with the word "Hello".  I fell in love.  This door tells you everything you need to know about the people who live inside.  I LOVE that.  The search was on for all the cool ways cross-stitching has been reinvented in design. 

You can decorate with it...

I have regained my love for this hated past time.  I am not sure where...or how many times...but you will see cross-stitching in my home some day soon.
