This project is a photo of some of my parents dogs that I converted to a chart using Richards BlendThreads.

The original:

The mock up of the chosen chart:

The final piece will be 25x20cm, stitched on an 18ct Aida (Dusty Blue).

My initial goal was to stitch a pattern with a maximum of 100 colours. As you can guess, that didn't happen.
The current pattern has 114 stitch colours made of 134 floss colours. That is close enough for me. Quality matters too.
I really can't wait to see how the digital colours (as seen on my laptop screen) translate to the actual colours of the finished piece. So excited to start! (and actually a little scared too) Now waiting for the fabric to arrive...

For anyone interested in the details:
-floss range: DarkAdjusted DMC Cotton
-dithering: Floyd Steinberg
-max no colours 10x10sq: 52
-ave no colours 10x10sq: 19.3
-min no colours 10x10sq: 1
