Random blargh with drawing

I've frittered away much of the day so far trying to find a decent drawing program for my computer. So far, everything is a fail for what I want a computer program to do. I want to make perfect/nearly perfect nine-pointed stars in many variations. You know, like sunbursts, flowers, long points, and short points. I also want something for creating designs for cross-stitch, needlepoint, and filet crochet. Not all on the same program, mind you. One for the drawing and one for the graphing.

For now, I'll stick with paper to make my stars and charts. ;) I've already charted a small teapot and a 33 square wide 9-point star. The star turned out better than I hoped. If I can add a fairy or dragon to it, I'll have the perfect symbol to combine my Faith with my love of fantasy. Back to the drawing pad, I guess. At least I'm not feeling so blargh anymore. :D

Oh man, I know the feeling. At least you made a decision about what you were going to do for the time being.

Good luck! Most of the drawing programs I've come across that are any good are EXPENSIVE.

I guess no decent drawing program for me then. I can't afford to pay that much for something I really only need for making line drawings. I did find a program for charted designs finally. I forgot I had a copy of Pattern Maker by Hobbyware. I don't know if it'll run on our newer computer though. The CD-ROM says it works on machines up to Windows XP. Our desktop is Windows 7. I just haven't gotten around to trying it yet. If it doesn't work, I may go out and buy the updated version.
