Thanks for the comment. I only use 2 strands (DMC 6 strand floss) You can get good coverage -- just becareful with your tension. You just pull gently until it lays on the fabric-- don't yank it through-- many people make this mistake!!
I love my pattern maker pro-- I have had mine for 15 years with an upgrade a couple years ago !! I think it is totally worth getting!! You can control the numbers of floss and size of the design. You see what the design will look like also can change anything without redoing it from the start.
Also when you do program upgrade -- you can get 1/2 price for being a returning customer!! I thought that was way cool!!
Thanks everyone!! The artist who drew the dragon was pretty amazed as well. It would be cool to stitch another one of her dragons -- just not right now. I can't stitch another cross stitch with grey tones yet!! I'm on another search for my next project.(another dragon I think) I want to start in a couple months. (after I have a small break this time)
