Cross-stitch portraits graced walls of homes of privileged in early age. They brought timeless class and elegance not only to portraits but to entire home as well. Since cross-stitch, then, was a status symbol, only elites were privileged enough to have this kind of luxury. Instead of having their images in photograph or paintings, they chose to have it stitched - every detail and nuance of their image.
Cross-stitch portraits have touch of class and elegance because every detail is carefully considered. Every detail is painstakingly stitched to perfection that result is as good as real image. Every color and every feature is very carefully considered that gives portrait personal touch.
These days, class and elegance are seldom elements of a household since most of equipment in homes are technologically upgraded. Everything works in a click, a push or even a snap. Modernization has lost timeless grace and style somewhere along way. Now, everything has to be fast, efficient and advanced. It appears that people have less time to appreciate beauty and flair. Wouldn't it be nice for your home to be appreciated for its uniqueness, style and elegance?
Snapshots are tokens of memories that you treasure. And you would want to remember them for always. It is fun to look (and look and look again) at collection of pictures of most terrific events of your life. Sometimes you couldn't help yourself to trace face of your loved ones on pictures. Your touch bears longing and fondness for person or event.
In cross-stitch, every detail stitched means every account of unforgettable occasion is remembered and labored with. It's like stitching together intricate details of memories and feelings during those times when affair happened.
And when portrait is done, you'll know that all memories and feelings are captured in that magnificent and elegant portrait in cross-stitch. And you'll always be pleased and proud of it because of labor of love that was poured in it.
