You see, I had this bright idea of creating a cross-stitch from this amazing clock face fractal I found. I have the software and tried a number of different parameters. Part of what makes it stand out is the dark background. If I want to cut the colors down to 30 – then my program assigns dark navy as the background color. But I really prefer just a few more colors and black.
The next choice of course is background. If I can deal with stitching on black, that would leave me thousands fewer stitches….. This leaves the following challenge
which points out that – the canvas is part of the design and gee – there isn’t much contrast with DMC939
It is really, really obvious that bright light helps. Now I am going to need to find my small clip on light for travel. Or Jill and I are going to have to stake out a small window table in the Lounge right next to the window for our March trip in order to have lots of daylight.
The cats are enjoying our company. Especially when they are charging through the house about four in the morning.
