Do you get sick and tired of them?

Postby Lyudmila » Thu Oct 26, 2017 4:56 am

I was looking at a thread at the Russian site as many of them stitch lots of Dimension's and other good firms' designs. The thread is "Cross stitched works in your home".

So, here is the question: :)] Do you have the same pictures on the walls for years? And if so, do you get sick and tired of them? Do you rotate(correct word?) them? :)]
My answer: I dont have any cross stitch works up the walls.

Well you asked an the answer is yes I hang quite a few of my cross stitch pieces. No I do not rotate them and no I do not get tired of them...I have them in every room. ...What I don't stitch for my children ...but for me I hang...I also have a few that I have made into flat folds and door hangers. I have a large cork board in my computer room where I ..have tacked all the bookmarks and mail art and even a few assorted ornaments . I have even a few stitched framed pieces received as gifts hanging on my walls. I guess you can tell I love them all so I get to see and enjoy them .. Gi{{

This is an easy question for me, I only have 1 picture that I made hanging on my wall, all the others I have made have been for family & friends, But if I did have more then 1 on my wall, no I wouldn't rotate them or get fed up at looking at them, because it is something that I made and would enjoy them every day! ;;}(

I have lots of cross stitch framed and hanging. No I do not rotate my stitching.
I will add things for Hallowe'en and Christmas but generally I never rotate items

Yes, I have stitched pictures on my walls. They are set up in themes, pirates, dragons, wizards, Oriental, hummingbirds, roses, cats, Red Hat, Halloween, ....
Rotate? I couldn't if I wanted to, which I don't. I never get tired of looking at my pieces. I just need to find a way to get more walls so I can hang more!

I don't rotate my "wall art" of any kind. In my family room, there are 3 small framed cross-stitch projects I did about 30 years ago. They're simple but nice with a colored paper mat around each one. They're in a group - high to low. I've got a few others scattered around the house, even two that were given to me by my mother. One had changed places because I needed something new in that spot when the 20+ year old battery operated clock (anniversary gift from employer) just QUIT, even with a new battery.

I've also got a couple of beaded banners that do change from time to time and a couple of large latch hook rugs. There are even a few pictures (very few), one of which is an original.

I don't move them around. I don't move my furniture around either. I like things as I have them. That's just the way I am.

However, I do admit there are two items I would like to put on the wall but don't know where! One is an original oil painting that we got from a friend of my husband that's a simple landscape with a really weird tree (one branch almost trailing on the ground) and a cardinal sitting on the branch. The other is a paint by number on velvet of the Garden of Gesthemene. We don't have that much empty wall space -- too many bookcases!
There's no such thing as a stupid question!

Unfortunately I don't have any of my own stitched pieces on the wall or (smaller designs) hanging anywhere. I have some ornament size pieces that I have received as gifts that are hanging in various places, but nothing made by me. It seems like everything I make is given to someone else.

I have quite a few hanging on my walls, some that I have stitched and others that my late aunt did (I brought them all over from the US to Spain when she passed away). I don't rotate them. I enjoy looking at them.
There's only one exception. At the entrance hall I have, depending on the time of the year, a framed piece for Fall (now), Christmas, Spring or Summer. Those are the only ones I rotate.

I have 2 things of my stitching on the walls. First is the wolf I stitched in 2004 for Charlie 5 years before he went from best friend to hubby. The other is the Monopoly board that we can take down to play with the grandkids. Other than that my husband is an art collector and there is art covering so many of our walls when my mother comes over she says it's like visiting an art gallery.
