art doll

A few years back, I worked through The Vein of Gold by Julia Cameron. One of the exercises was to make an art doll representing your creativity (there's also an exercise that involves making a doll representing your inner critic, which I had a blast destroying). Here's a pic of my creativity doll:

create your own patterns

microRevolt has a great chart generator for cross stitch and knit patterns called knitPro. Some of the cross stitch charts (I haven't tried creating knit patterns yet) I generated seem to need some tweaking: there are solid black lines in one image I tested and they came out a bit fuzzed. There are three size options for charts, though, so you can choose how much detail comes through. It's a fun tool for cross stitch experiments. I think this generator probably works best with simple images that you are interested in playing around with.
