Heh, thanks, you guys. :]

@bananabanana: Um, I'm not actually sure, haha. I've never used a cross-stitch chart. For this one, I opened it in Gimp, posterized it into 3 colors (mostly because it's hard for me to find a grey that I like, and this picture would've had so many different shades that are just kind of unpleasant to my eye in DMC. So I just went with black, white, and one grey in-between), and then went into MS Paint. From there, I just zoom in really close and eyeball it, coloring it in as I go.

You can upload a picture to this site  http://www.patterncreator.com/  and it will make a pattern for you.  That's what I used to make my pattern for my next big project (if I ever get to it  Cheesy)

I love the Calvin & Hobbes piece; it's so 100% my style, it's not even funny. I'd love to have it on my wall.

I made some good progress on OOT last night while the boyfriend and I and another couple were watching Friday the 13th (parts 2&3) which I've seen about 50 billion times.

We plan on watching 4-7 this weekend and the boyfriend and his friend are currently beating Ocarina of Time side-by-side (ironic, much?), so I should have LOTS of time to stitch this weekend. Now we'll just see how much of my real homework I actually get done...Cheesy

Holy smoke! I can't believe you did that by eye. I am impressed.
Thanks for the pattern maker sites Sewsew-a-Gogo and HistoricalNeedle. Will check it out.

Ugh. Got barely anything done this weekend. Friday I had to spend about an hour ripping out two hours' worth of work. It was the start of Ganondorf's head, too, so I couldn't even fudge it and make it work.

I'm taking a minor hiatus because I'm getting bogged down with homework at the moment and I need to play catch-up. I'm going to try and get ahead this week, though, so I have all weekend free to stitch! I promise there will be an update by the end of next weekend.
