For those of you who like to cross stitch as much as I do (here, here, and here), I have found an incredible site that lets you take a photo and create it into a pattern.
I know that my granddaughter Hadley loves bunnies, and Kendra has incorporated them into her big girl room.
So I took a discontinued PB photo and saved it onto my desktop.
Then I went to www.myphotostitch.com. From there it was easy.
I downloaded the picture, and entered some information: the Aida count & cloth size, the number of colored threads, and pattern style.
Photostitch did the rest!!
Here are two pages of my new pattern with floss suggestions.
Looks like I will be kept busy for awhile (:
Have a wonderful weekend ♥
Hello All! Last week, I received an email from Daphne at Chairish asking if I'd be interested in creating a design board based around one of the vintage accent chairs currently for sale on their site. As someone who loves vintage furniture, I am no stranger to Chairish and their curator-approved treasures. And I have enjoyed seeing what some of my favorite bloggers have purchased and sold on the site over the last year. So I eagerly accepted the "challenge" and got to work putting together a board based around a gorgeous fuchsia Danish Teak Lounge Chair by Arne Vodder France & Son.
Once I choose the chair I knew the space I would create would me mine - my little corner of the world - so I added elements that were soft, colorful, warm and inviting. And whimsical - of course! You'll find the full list of items in the design board below, two of which are from Chairish - check out their entire site for a lot more pre-owned goodness!
Hi! With all the work going on in Hadley's new room I thought it only fair to share a few new snaps of Layla's room!
I added some 3-D flowers (from the Oh Joy Spring collection) to the wall for a little more color and shine (I love the gold ones!) And every couple of months I hang something new above her bed on a string of fishing line. During the Winter is was snowflakes, in February we did hearts and now we have big puffy flowers.
When Spoonflower offers a free swatch of fabric (usually when they are introducing a new type of fabric) I take turns asking the girls what they like and then I search for fabric based on that. Last month Layla picked mermaids so I found this adorable fabric and the swatch has been hanging on the lamp on her dresser ever since!
Her room is still my favorite in the house...: )
