Ronnie Jado progress

August 20, 2009 - I finished filling in all the purple of the flower. I wish there was a little more detail in the flower, to match the detail in the butterfly and cone. The shadow in the original picture didn’t quite turn out right in the cross-stitch. But all in all, Ronnie Jado looks pretty good!

July 12, 2009 - The cool eyespots are in…doesn’t Ronnie Jado look cool? (The name is derived from the Spanish word for orange, “anaranjado”. I couldn’t spend this many hours working on something and not give it a name!!)

Introducing Ronnie Jado

June 26, 2009 - My current cross-stitch is a design I generated from one of my photographs. I took the picture of the Painted Lady at Callaway Gardens when we were there for our 5th anniversary. Here’s the original picture… This is the preview that my cross-stitch program gave me for this design.
