Motherhood by Selina Fenech

I found this image by the artist Selina Fenech on the web. It's absolutely gorgeous! I'd love to get this for my house (hint hint to anyone reading *lol)

What I would LOVE is the cross stitch of it, but it's stitched over 1 thread on 25 count material and is over 11" square!

(edit: Oct 9, 2006) I never posted the site the cross-stitch comes from. It's from Heaven and Earth Designs, a site that has a lot of absolutely amazing fantasy art converted to high quality cross stitch patterns! (edit ends)

For those that don't know cross stitch, that means that there are 25 threads per inch of fabric and 1 stitch for every thread of fabric... so 25 full cross stitches for every inch...

The stitch count is 279 stitches wide x 311 stitches high. That equals 86,769 stitches in total! That's FREAKING HUGE and I know it would take me 25 years to finish it, so there's not much sense right now when I've already got a few cross stitches on the go.

Anyhow, here's the picture that I love so much.

yeah, it would. But in order for it to look nice, it would have to be a lot bigger than I would want.
