Pictures in Embroidery

Wow, did I get off track last year. Has it really been 10 months since I last left a blog post? Perhaps I just can't decide where to write my musings? In any case, I decided this morning to commit to a twice a week blog. It will still just be ramblings on what I'm working on. Right now (and actually on my machine) is a Picture Stitch of Falls Park in Greenville. Given it has just about 100,000 stitches, it will be a couple of days before I can post a picture. Right now, it looks like it's coming together nicely. 5D PictureStitch does take a little finesse. It's learning how the computer program interprets the colors of your picture. More pixels are not necessarily better when it comes to PictureStitch. More on that later. For right now, I just wanted to get it on "paper" that I would be blogging at least twice a month. I'll be more committed to staying with it if I do that. I guess it just makes it more "real" for me!
