I'm finding I'm kind of into cross stitch again after a long time away from it. So when my partner in the One Tiny Star Trek Thing swap said she was a Spock fan, I knew what I had to do.

Since I run Linux, and most of the charting programs are not open to me, I have been looking for a decent picture to pattern converter for a while. I charted this using Cross Stitchify, a plugin for GIMP.  The first picture I chose, and charted out for 22ct, turned out better than this, but upon inspection of my stash I didn't have any 22ct cloth & I wanted to start it right away so I chose another picture & charted it in 18ct. Looking at it here, it is clearly not perfect, but I think that is my fault. I think I didn't posterize it enough. I intend to do the original anyway so I will see how it would have turned out.
Thanks for looking.

It's so hard to make faces in cross stitch, and this looks wonderful!!  (Also, I'm a bit of a trekkie, so there's a soft spot in my heart for this.)

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Cross stitch really is very straightforward though. As long as you can make an x, all that is left after that is patience. Lots and lots of patience.

I saw this in the Star Trek swap gallery and it's just amazing. Even the fact you were able to chart it that small is amazing. Beautiful work.
