Did You Ever...



see something on TV and think "that would make a great cross stitch chart. Or how about something in your home? I had a floral comforter that had a pattern that I thought would make a neat crewel pattern. Well, I was watching Dr. Who a couple of weeks ago and they did a show on Vincent Van Gogh. Now I'm not usually into art or paintings but they showed some that I had never seen before and I just fell in love with the colors and the style. I checked around and sure enough I found patterns for them on the Cross Stitch Collectibles site. So I just got them yesterday and it's really thrown my planning into chaos. I had decided that my next big project was going to be The Wave. Now I really want to start the Branches of Almond Blossoms. The Van Gogh has about 29 pages and The Wave about 19. Do I do The Wave first or should I start a rotation with both of them? Decisions, decisions!

OMG the Van Gogh is gorgeous!!! I'm afraid I would have to break down and do a rotation because that is a really hard decision. I never knew Van Gogh designs had been converted to cross stitch; how neat. Have fun and I'll be looking forward to seeing what you decide.

What a great find! Go for Van Gogh! I personally love the one with the boat on it! I am sure the cherry blossoms will be fantastic! Cannot wait to see what you decide. If you feel you need to start two - go for it and rotate them! Life is short!

Van Gogh is my choice too, but 29 pages is kind of scary to me. Stitch whatever makes you the happiest!
