Three blue doors cross stitch pattern

Three blue doors cross stitch pattern

Punk project challenge (week two, since I have effectively overslept the previous one) is to make a project using my favorite colors. And for me nothing represents my favorite color – blue – than the beautiful Mediterranean doors, deep blue on perfectly white walls. So today I made a big pattern using three images of such doors.

The pattern, as usual, is completely free to download (look for the link below the image).

The Kells cat cross stitch pattern

The Kells cat free cross stitch pattern

Today I’ve looked through loads of photos, but decided to make a pattern based on my own drawing (again: previously I made the Turtle Island, Maneki-neko and the jazz cat with bass). It will again be a cat, probably because somewhere inside of me is a crazy cat lady dying to get out.

This pattern, as well as the source picture, is heavily inspired by the art from the Book of Kells. The artwork and illumination of this medieval manuscript is fantastic! I strongly recommend to look it up on Google (or to visit Dublin’s Trinity College, where it is displayed).
