     Very cool! Now if only I can get my Packer design figured out :-)

    lol, all I did was print out a logo I found off of the computer and then cut it out and placed it on there and held it down with a cup and traced the design.  You won't see when I'm done, so I traced as light as possible..lol  and then I just started stitching.  You can't follow the lines to a T but you figure out what extra stitch needs to go where as you go along and it turns out pretty good.  Do you have a pattern already for yours?

     Well, I just got the program PCStitch, you can load any picture and it'll turn it into a pattern for you.  I'm just sure I like the results yet. It automatically defaults to 50 colors.....its like you need that many colors to get the details, otherwise it pixelates the design! So, I just haven't played around enough with it yet to get it the way I want.

    lol, I'm dull I guess..lol  I'm just using the blue and red but I would like to do shades in time.  His birthday is on the 17th of this month so I didn't really have time to play around...lol   I might try shading when I do another one or even if I do one for myself for my Giants.  :)  When you do tackle yours, I can't wait to see it!  it's going to be great!  :)
