Kaleidoscopes

When I changed computers last spring, I lost the program that I could make kaleidoscopes with.  It had been a download and there was no cd.   I only play with it - it's fascinating  so see the gorgeous kaleidoscopes that come out of a single picture.  Recently, I reordered a newer version and they gave me credit for the earlier one that I had downloaded so I have this fun "toy" again.  You could actually print out the segments on fabric and make a quilt, but I don't see that happening.  It's just fun to put a picture up and every time you move it just a little bit you have a different gorgeous image.     Both images, above and below, are from an old piece of unfinished needlepoint that I showed in an earlier post.  I think they are so pretty showing the wool stitches.


 
This is part of an old wallhanging I did a long time ago with an appliqued basket on a watercolor pieced background.  Love the way the background looks.  If you check closely, you can see a teddy bear under the basket.   (Click to enlarge)
