Floss Types on Import

Ever wonder what might happen if you tried to re-chart an image for a different brand?  Well, wonder no more.  I took the same image, and imported it to PCStitch for a variety of popular floss brands.  Note that I did not include everything, since some of the brands in PCStitch's library have an extremely limited palette.  Also be aware that these colours are dependent on how PCStitch displays these colours, so it may not be 100% accurate.  But it can give you an idea of what you'll get.

The original painted image is on the left.  This only compares the original, intended colours to the floss.  It does not directly compare flosses.

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.
