My friend Kate Tribe is creating some original cross stitch patterns and will soon have some for sale for your crafting pleasure!
During a wonderful crafty brunch, she put one of my photos (of The Man and I) through a software and created a pattern for me. I thought it would be an ideal gift for The Man's mother when I met her.
I had originally planned to complete the project before I left but unfortunately ran out of time. Luckily I found an awesome craft store next to the Sacre Coeur (Mon Dieu, Sacre Coeur!) during our Paris travels and bought the supplies there.
I started the project on the 7 hour train ride from Paris to Provence with much encouragement from my fellow retreaters. I continued crafting throughout my free time in Provence showing my progress at each evening's 'Show and Tell' session.
Here is some of the progress and the finished product!

Make it as you wish SSSs!
