Charting and Then Painting a Canvas

Carmen is interested in charting software she can use to paint designs on canvas for basketweave pillows, and tried out two programs. Her thoughts on the demos and the software she ended up buying are here.

If you are a Mac user your choices are a little more limited, particularly if you don't want to run a dual Mac/PC system.

Carmen has started painting her design on canvas, which I found very interesting. She talks in detail about her supplies and how she goes about it.   I'm looking forward to an update on this.

UPDATES:  I checked Carmen's blog (RSS feeders don't work with it for some reason) and found two more progress reports.
