Poly Cross-Stitch Design Planning

Some­one on the Poly­fam­i­lies list a while back men­tioned hav­ing a plaque that says “We may not have it all togeth­er, but togeth­er we have it all.” I like that. In fact, I think I want to chart it as a cross-stitch design (not for sale, just for per­son­al use). So I need a border.

I real­ly like the inter­twined hearts and infin­i­ty sym­bol that is on this page. It would make a nice motif but isn’t right for a bor­der. The same hearts and infin­i­ty sym­bol are shown sep­a­rat­ed here. I like the bright col­ors and the light­heart­ed feel of these sym­bols, and they’re sim­ple enough to trans­late well to cross-stitch.

None of those, though, are real­ly quite right for a bor­der. I’m run­ning into a prob­lem due to the fact that I’m not an artist and I’m not even all that visu­al­ly oriented.


(BTW—I will ask the artist for per­mis­sion to use her work this way, of course.)
