Yes, the tool on darklilac.com is so splendiferous. I've had to improvise in some of the charts I've made because sometimes it will render colors without detail--on my Rosie the Riveter chart there was a big blob of one color where there should be a fist on a yellow background, for instance--but that's not a big deal; we creative types can work it out!  Smiley

Mrsblocko - thankfully I've convinced myself that the Klimt piece is salvageable. The entire thing was going to be cross-stitched, but I was under the impression that back-coverage was a bad thing when in reality it's supposed to be done. So I didn't put the stitches in the order they're supposed to go. And I realized that I might be selling the image short by doing it in cross-stitch, because with so many textures in the original image it would be good to incorporate lots of satin stitch, among others. Plus there are so many thread changes and colors that the back is an absolute mess.
I removed portions of the stitching and tried to clean up the back a little. The old needlework book from which I'm trying to learn different stitches said that cross-stitch or continental stitch are the best for realism, so I think I'm okay, since those are the stitches I've got. The big areas of color I can cover with larger, more ornate stitches later on when I have a better feel for them.

This is what I started in June 2006 (I always forget so I started writing it on my pattern). I don't think I did much of it at all last year. I hope to finish it this year, though.





There are 9 pages of pattern and I have about 2 left. There is no outlining at all. The thing that takes the most time is that there isn't just rows and rows of one color. It's more like a square here, one over there, etc.
