Found a great webby where you could literally convert a photo into cross stitch! I haven't try on any cross stitch project before but by looking at the results featured on the webby, I'm tempted to try one. Although it's a scary thought to have a picture of me in cross stitch!
There are 2 options;
a) You get the chart and do it your self OR
b) Have her make one for you!
Personally, either way it's a good bargain! I think it's unique and timeless and it will be a sweet memory to have your picture in such form.
