Immaculate Heart

by Lana

This isn't really a cross stitch - it is a tapestry done in continental stitch using Perle thread. We had the picture scanned by a fellow who converted it to a pattern in sepia tone using 10 shades.

It is an interesting result. Close up most of the detail is lost. Further away and the picture is almost three dimensional with lots of detail. This is quite frustrating to complete as you can't see anything just shades of brown!

Click the picture for more detail and sit back from the computer. You will get the same effect!
