My Original Stitching
Remember Friday I posed a question about what the diagonal line of stitches on the cracked tombstone would look like if I switched the direction?  Robin King has answered my question through the magic of Photoshop.

Robin Adds a Flipped Area to See Directional Change

Robin explained how she managed the flip:

"Here's how I did it:
• In Photoshop, I made a new Layer.
• Using the Clone Stamp Tool, I sampled your Stitching.
• Then I Flipped Horizontal to get the reverse direction.
I often use Photoshop for previewing a stitch."

Thank you very much, Robin! Looks like I made the right decision after all. Here's the current state of the cracked tombstone. I was too tired to finish the bottom area last night but I hope to do that this morning and then stitch the grass tonight.

Progress to Date
If you have Photoshop on your computer, you might want to use Robin's instructions the next time you are wondering what something will look like.
