The key purchase for this Jerome Project Grant is the software, TruEmbroidery. It is a set of digitizing programs that will allow me to develop original embroidery, from the ground up. I started working with it a bit a week or so ago and then got the South Minneapolis cold that cleared Puffs with Lotion off the shelves at the grocery store. It was frustrating. The software could not understand what I was telling it to do...clearly we were speaking a different language. Learning this software reminds me of learning Adobe Creative Suite.
So, I went back to square one and simply imported a photo of my niece Heather and let the software do its thing. My input was to tell the software how many colors .Cool!
