Hello there, I’m back again after spending a week on the sofa with a nasty cold.
Today I bring you a sponsor post, if you want to become a sponsor click here.
My friend, Roel, is one of the founders of ixxi. By now I think you all have heard of this amazing company that makes decorative wall systems. I’ve been thinking about an ixxi for my own for a while now but couldn’t come up with one as I didn’t want to just enlarge a photo. Frankly speaking I’m not keen on family photos on the wall or anywhere in the house for that matter.
So after some pondering and contemplating a large bare wall in my basement studio I came up with an ixxi crochet wall hanging. I individually photographed 25 unique crochet starburst rounds on a white paper background, cut and resized them all to the same size in Photoshop and uploaded them to the ixxi mainframe.
Once I had my ixxi at home and up on the wall I thought it looked boring with the x’s and i’s onto the back, as it’s supposed to be. So I thought I could have them the wrong way round as it looks like a cross stitch instead. It worked and I love it!
Get in touch with me if you’d like an ixxi/yvestown crochet blanket for yourself.
