3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Wedding Portrait - My Sister's Work-PIC HEAVY on: December 14, 2007 05:05:43 PM
Well, I had just posted my first embroidery work and I just have to share my sister's work - Her only craft is cross-stitch and I have many of her works.  Oooh - there's another one I have to share cause it's so cool.  Well anyway - I think I am saying this right...She did converted my portrait with some cross-stitch software, did this on linen, 48 count...anyway, it's amazing.  She's not on craftster (something I am gonna fix when I go to visit over xmas.)  Can you guys give the love so I can surprise her and pop on the site in at Christmas?

Update 12/16/07 - THANKS TO EVERYONE for their wonderful comments.  I am so happy to get my sister the props she deserves!  She is NOW on craftster as lorbval. She replied with this info:  (page 3 of the replies)
Hi there!  Thanks for all the compliments!!
I decided I wanted to give my sis an heirloom she could pass down to her great great great grandkids.. and who knows maybe in a hundred years it may be worth some bucks! 
I used a software program called pattern maker.  (Of course it's obsolete now as I did this 5-6 computers ago!)
I'm sure they sell updated programs that do the same thing now.  All I did was scan the picture and it converted it into the pattern.  (I think it was 27 pages of symbols)
I believe it is 22 stitches per inch. (I definitely like a challenge..)
I took me 7 months to complete and I gave it to her for Christmas.  I believe I told her at the time after 7 months I was sick of looking at her cleavage!!  LOL!   It's a fairly large picture I think 2 ft by a foot and half or so.  If I remember correctly I think it had over 700,000 stitches.  I also affixed her wedding invitation to the back of the frame so there is a story with it.
Thank you all for the warm and fuzzies this morning!
Here is a fabulous site I found   www.123stitch.com for all you stitchers out there.. I really like the Lavender and Lace and Mystic Stitch patterns. 
I gravitate towards pics that a bit more challenging.  My husband gets frustrated with me sometimes as I have to ask him "What just happened on t.v.?"  Who wants to just sit and watch t.v. anyway?  Gives me something to do!
Have a wonderful day all~
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / First Embroidery - Holiday Ornaments Swap on: December 14, 2007 02:37:54 PM
These are for the 2nd Annual Holiday Ornament Swap.  Thanks to Craftster and having the Sublime Stitching link, I am now HOOKED!! Thanks for looking!
I wondered how to clearly photograph, so I threw some white satiny fabric on my sewing table.  I am also silly with photoshop...I spent alot of time on these puppies!   Cheesy
