Weekly Workload: February 4 2019

Three pieces on this week's roster.  One which will probably be finished today, if all goes well.

Support Artisans



Patch commission.  I need to fix the bird because I hate it, but there really isn't much left on this one.  I also need to work out some back stitching for the bird and maybe the orange bits.  But Mr Bird there definitely blends into the background in a way I really don't like. 



Yeen



Conbadge, example and guerrilla marketing.  After the Haida badge, I really fell in love with doing them this way.  This one is on dyed blue fabric, though I haven't been as quick on it as I'd have liked.  Paying commissions take priority, and other stuff around the house got in the way as well.  Ideally, I think I can still manage to clear this entire list by the end of the week.



Frostline



Conbadge, trade.  Another badge, because they're a quick way to get my work and examples out there.  I think I used the wrong brush while drawing the sprite, because some things seem wonky for reasons I can't figure out, but not wonky enough that I felt like it was worth redoing. 


Don't forget, you get more WIP shots throughout the week by supporting me on Patreon.

Group Project: Bosch Quilt

This is the Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch.  It is my favourite painting in history, because look at it.  It's insane.  Painted some time around 1500, the Garden of Earthly Delights is a triptych depicting Heaven (or Eden), Earth (or mortal sin), and Hell (or the Last Judgement), depending on one's interpretation of the panels.

Honestly, I just love it because look at it.  Is that a man playing a flute with his ass?  This is some demented Dutch Where's Waldo.

Why am I telling you about this delightfully horrifying tribute to humanity?  Because this is our next group project.  We, as a collective, will be stitching this thing.  I've wanted to stitch this for a long time, but haven't been able to because in order to preserve all the absurd detail, it needs to be huge.  Like, 500 stitches huge.  I kind of wanted to make it bigger, but it's already going to be almost 200 pattern pages as it is.

Do you want to participate?  Awesome!  Here's what…

DMC Floss Indexes

Included in this download are floss indexes for DMC flosses.  Currently, the download contains entries for:
Stranded CottonSatinÉtoile
More will be added in the future, so it is recommended that you create an account and follow my page to be alerted whenever this listing is updated so you may download  it again without charge.
This index contains files to change floss entries within recent versions of PCStitch, as well as PNG files which can be colour-picked for direct use, or to gain RGB entries.
PLEASE NOTE:
While these colours are more accurate than what comes out of the box with PCStitch, dye lots and monitor differences may mean that colours do not display precisely.  Some tweaking and changes on the user end may still be required, however direct image conversions will be greatly enhanced with this index.  Full coverage pieces will have less "mud" to the darker areas, and colours like blue, red, and purple should have fewer issues converting cleanly.
