  • Portrait help needed...

    I know, I lurk a LOT! But, I have come upon an issue I'm struggling with and hope someone will be kind enough to help me out =)

    My niece was married this year, but no one had a proper camera to take pics - now she's asked me to make a portrait for her that she can give her new husband this Christmas - I have tried to enlarge the photo, but it isn't clearing anything up. I'm desperately running out of time!

    Anyway, any help would be appreciated - and I will definitely give credit to the pattern designer if you're able to help =)

    Thanks,
    ~ freida

    Instead of a portrait, could you cut it as a puzzle? It's not what she asked for but she might go along with it if you explain the limitations.

      Thank you Keith - I did ask her, but she said that when she saw a recent portrait I had completed that that is why she wanted one to commemorate her "big day" - unfortunately, my asking has thrown her into a panic! sigh... I greatly appreciate your suggestion though; I have created many puzzles and hopefully, under better circumstances, she will have one done =)

        Freida, I tried everything that I know but couldn't come up with anything worthwhile,Sorry. Perhaps one of the others will jump in and have more success than me. Good luck!

              I appreciate it Spirithorse =) Sorry to cause so many the frustration - I feel bad that no one took proper photos of her wedding so I really want to accomplish this! I'm very grateful for everyone's efforts! =) Thank you!

                New photo -

                I worked on this yesterday and I think this might make a better pic to make the pattern from -

                Thank you everyone!

                      Freida, I have been playing with it and have got the subjects kinda sorta recognizable but not much detail. If I continue with this one and clean it up, will it be of any use or am I just spinning my wheels?

                          Sorry Freida, this is about all the damage I can do. If the subjects see this pattern please ask them to be not too angry at me!
                          Merry Christmas

                            Thank you Don! Given what you had to work with I'd say that you did pretty darn good! I certainly can't thank you enough for all of your work on this - I'm sure that Carry would say "thank you!" as well =) Again, many thanks!
