Tardis door! Amazing! Also I love that just like the Doctor's Tardis, the door says "Pull to open" but you actually have to push. Great work!

Good for you! Your room looks amazing. I think my favourite part is the lacy hanging lampshade. It looks so pretty.

This is such a cool idea! I was doing the math and it looks like you would have spent $100 dollars just on frames, was the $38 total for picture printing? I am getting ready to do this same project with our wedding photos. Thanks for posting!

Printed the photos myself on my inkjet printer. So, not really free, but not expensive enough to calculate.

Evidently I am having a blonde moment... Are the frames 4x6 or 5x7? We are moving into a new house soon and I would LOVE to recreate this!

Mine are 5x7 frames, matted to fit 4x6 pictures.

That is so hilarious! Poor whale! And poorer bowl of petunias. Loved that scene in the book.

Is that much cotton heavy?

Would you be OK with someone using/adapting some of your pattern?

Certainly. All the different elements were culled from a stack of cross-stitch books from the public library. If I had a scanner I could scan the pattern I drew on graph paper, but I think you can figure it out from the pictures alone.

This is a cross-stitch sampler inspired by the late British comedy series Black Books. It's a birthday present for a friend who's also a fan.

The shelf of books in disarray is for the messy bookshop Bernard and Manny run. The grapes are for the episode "Grapes of Wrath"; the poker hand, card suits and racehorses are for the episode "A Little Flutter" (note the card Bernard tries to cheat with, Mrs Bun); the elephant and the balloon are for the episode "Elephants and Hens"; and the wine bottles and glasses are because Bernard and Fran are always getting drunk. "No Timewasters" is something the misanthropic Bernard writes on a board in his shop.


I don't take very good pictures, but it's white 16-count Aida fabric. I hope she likes it!

Gorgeous! I love the grey and pink ones. Very neat work.

I love love love the French magazine Marie Claire Ides, but I never make any projects from it because they all seem to require access to La Droguerie, a vast lush backyard, a brood of photogenic children, and that certain je-ne-sais-quoi that makes everything in that magazine look so effortless and elegant.

But the January 2010 issue contained something cool that I could actually do:

(Photos blurred in Photoshop for privacy reasons.)

Here's the original project, on the bottom right corner of the cover:

I had been looking for an eye-catching way to display framed pictures in my new apartment for some time. For some reason, the pattern provided in the instructions does not actually match the picture on the cover, and I ended up changing the orientation of some of the frames anyway, so the shape of mine turned out a little different. Mine has a pointier bottom.

The frames came from Zellers in packages of 2 for $5, al though one weekend I got 10% off for using my HBC credit card. The mats came from the dollar store in packs of 2 for $1-$1.25, depending on which employee was working the cash register. All told, each frame cost about $3. The pictures I printed on my own inkjet printer. Approximate total cost: CDN$38.

Here it is in progress:

And with a floor lamp so you can see the finished size:
