Default Another way to make pattern

While trying to explane to Bill how I make my patterns I descover another way. I had taken a picture of a pattern I want to burn some time. I had to poto shop it to prepare the picture to post. When down posting I went back into poto shop and expanded the pattern just to see how it looked. Well it looked so good I layed some tracing paper over the screen and could not resist drawing it. It came out very well and will be used as a -pattern some time.

That just seems like cheating. Although, I would be worried about the pressure of the pencil or pen doing eventual damage to the screen.

I'm obviously missing something here. Why not just print the picture and use that as the pattern?

Because I am to cheap to get my printer fixed and don't want to bother my wife or daughter to do it for me.
