It does rather remind me of the fabulous painted cross stitch mural in the home Eline Pellinkhof blogged here last March. If you would like an update and news on Eline's book being translated into English there's a nice interview with Eline in this months Mollie Makes.

Eline promised a template for anyone needing a little help to re-create the mural. And hooray you can now buy two sizes of plastic templates (size A3 and A5) that help you transfer any cross stitch pattern. You just trace the template with a pencil and then color in the pencil lines with paint. They are available from ByPetra.
For more rather nice contemporary cross stitch ideas have a gander atthe Dutch atHome magazine.
Now then - what's it to be. A template, paints and paint brush for the wall (as said almost a year ago!) OR do I buy some floor felt, a home punch and some chennile wool and try for a rug?
