Nine Stones Update

Please take a moment to look at my new website for the cross stitch collection I am creating!
I have added the images of the paintings I am converting into cross stitch patterns. Let me know what you think!

Boulangerie St. Louis

This painting may get a few more tweeks, but I wanted to post it anyhow!  This was one of the bakeries we could walk to on the Ile St. Louis in Paris.  The almond croissants were actually heavy because of all of the almond paste and butter in them!  This painting is the fourth in the Paris series, and will definitely be converted to a cross stitch pattern in the very near future!

Stitching a painting

Here are images of the magical transformation of my paintings into needle working patterns- cross stitch to be exact. The painting I am starting with is my snow covered house piece.  I am planning on using tiny glass beads to accentuate the highlights of snow and the red berries in the wreath.  The sage colored linen will help the overall tone of the finished work.

I will post more as I progress!
