Here is the complete pattern with left & layer lists in PDF format
so those who are "on the fence" and have not bought Pic-to-Weave
or downloaded the trial version can see what can be done with it.

Look good, when do you plan to do the weave and when do we get to see the pictures?

Good work Raymond,
I have taken  the liberty of printing the grid to PDF  so anyone that prefers to work directly from the grid can do so.
It is printed on eight A4 pages so it can be stuck to a board to work on.

If Fish-hawk can provide me with their colour range in either Pantone, or RGB, I can include them in the thread list.

cheers,
Owen

Well, here is a couple of pix. I just completed tightening it up but as you can see, it didn't come out as hoped. I'll get the pick out and see what I can do then pack & roll. I still have problems with mettalics and this was all METTALIC. We'll see, at least I'm back in the saddle after a long slump since after the holidays and having fun!
Not sure if the issues are all my weaving, or pattern, or threads.

Raymond,
Your pattern looks fine , although the text is always going to be an issue in my opinion due to the size of it.
You can see that as you have weaved it you have drifted down and stretched the center.
The egg shape of the sun suggests to me that you're placing too much tension on the threads when moving them into the right jig.
You need to ensure that the weave is not growing in the centre with each rotation. 
Try tensioning and aligning the threads individually every time you pick one up to move it from the right jig to the left.
The threads being moved to the right should not be under any more tension than necessary to hold them in the jig.
You are only getting a small amount of elongation each rotation, but the effect is cumulative.
The more complex the pattern, the more it will want to grow in the center.  You can't shove a thread between two others without some widening and as the center of the weave is typically where all the changes are, the effect multiplies even more.

I have to fight the same issue myself.

cheers,
Owen

Thanks Owen,

Doc said the same thing about the small text. "less is better".
You hit the stretch factor on the head! For a while my right jig
was loose and would creep to the left. I kept pulling it back and
that would ofcourse tighten up all the threads in the jig. I didn't
think about that stretching the weave untill you mentioned it.
Never had that problem happen before. Know better now. THANKS
