Hi. I'd like to start designing cross stitch patterns for myself. What software do you use? I would also like to be able to scan in a picture and magically turn it into a pattern. Is this possible? Any advice is appreciated.

BTW: I LOVE this site. I just found it the other day and I'm spending lots of time browsing through everyone's galleries.

    Mary Ellen,
    The "PC Stitch" software allows me to design by own patterns or import scanned images. I'm amazed at how well it works with certain imported images. The program creates a cross-stitch pattern from the image. It allows me to change the colors, pick the stitch count, calculate the fabric size, etc.

    Thanks for the compliment on my site.
