Long time no blog

I’ve been getting into cross stitch, thanks to a Chi Omega booklet I found on eBay. showed me how to read the diagram and how to do cross stitch, and now all the world is my pincushion. I’m trying to resist the urge to do an ATASCII sampler:

Since the top 8×16 characters (8×8 pixels) are the inverse of the bottom 8×16, it’d be 2^13 (8192) cross stitches, which is a bit daunting and/or insane. Perhaps I’ll just do an ATASCII version of a Home Sweet Home thingy. (With white floss on blue (DMC 800) aida, natch.)

Still, at 14 count, it’d be just over 9 inches, making it perfect for a pillow…
