    I have a skylight above my gaming computer. This is lovely except for the several hours when the sun shines straight into my eyes. Last month I got fed up and decided to do something about it. I took one of my favorite images of all time and used Photoshop to convert it to a cross-stitch friendly format so that I can shield my eyes with:

    Cool. Great idea! 🙂 Show how it looks like at the window, if not difficult.

    Thanks Sigma. 🙂 I’ll post further pictures at various stages. Once it’s done (which will take a long time) I’ll photograph it in the window.

    Awesome! I did a bit of cross-stitch many years ago, but never had the patience for larger projects. I’m excited to see this progress.

    Here’s an update. I figure I’ll post a new picture as I finish each color. Not looking forward to the black/white background.

    Really cool. Volumetric and stylish.
    I think I want to have something like that on one of my jackets

    I like the jacket Idea a lot Sigma. I’ll have to look into waste canvas (a way of using this technique on any fabric).

    I finished the main image!

    The fun part is over. Now for the tedium of filling in the background; black on the left, white on the right. It’s going to take a long time.

    As it appears it’s going to be very stylish )

    Of course, this is not the embroidery, but simply a color print, my windows have jalousie, so I decided to decorate little bit my little Japanese lamp 🙂
    It looks great during the day and especially at night.

    Sweet! Great idea Sigma. I’ve been considering getting transparencies printed to use temporarily because the rest of the project is going to take so long. I’m looking at a material called Duratran.

    I suspect, Yoshimitsu wants to surprise us not only a curtain for the window =) I just lose oneself in conjectures on what he could come up with…

    It’s been a while since I posted an update. Work continues but the rest of the project is boring and tedious; Lots of solid black and then lots of solid white. I’m still going strong though!

    I’ll be starting on a new project soon as well 😉
