Thanks as always Palms. The second one is a yarn look. At least that was my intent.

Yes. the program is still in beta, but this group will be the first to know when it goes public. (My own little Area 51... )

Me too, but it's not a matter of energy as it is eyesight. Just can't see the fine canvas anymore.

I designed X-Stitch for years and also Blackwork, which I learned to love even more than standard x-stitch.

Here's a sample of a blackwork piece I designed along with a closeup. Blackwork uses many of the techniques of embroidery to create patterns that form the shapes of the design. Usually done in one color of thread.

Feeling much better and shoulder is out of the sling so I can now reach my keyboard!!

Had to have a play at this lovely photo!

HSL adjustment, added a fresco filter and texture then painted back with the history brush at about 35% opacity.

Some nice ones here - Palms, I especially like your second version.

I'm feeling my way in Artweaver lately - this is my latest exercise. Finished off in PS.

Thanks, Palms..

Yeah, my dog got away from me (she wanted to chase ducks) pulled me down and broke my shoulder. I was in a sling that held my arm at a right angle to the keyboard and I couldn't do much of anything on my computer. Sling is gone now, although arm is still sore and I have physical therapy to look forward to starting next week.
