Now it will be easier to trace onto my square
Almost done, one more day and my grid will be all outlined. I am glad I stitched it first because the lines are already fading and they would really be difficult to see after a week or so but geeez, I thought I could knock it out in about 3 days. It has taken me over a week and lots more floss than I thought. I am so excited to get started stitching my blessings. I have been working on ideas and the first 2o or so are pretty easy to come up with but then it gets a little more difficult. I found a tutorial that shows how to take a photo and turn it into a line drawing so that way I can transfer it to my squares (from the transfer tutorial that Amy has on her site Early Bird Special. ) I don't draw well so this will be a big help. The first one I transformed is a pic of my dog, Angel. If anyone wants the instructions let me know as it is really easy.
