Oh so pretty! ♥
Love your Winter Basket version, Honeybee! The round fox ornament is darling and I really like the fabric used for it.
Beautiful! I love the way you've put greenery in the basket to highlight your stitching.
All great pieces to admire.Marilyn
Love, love, LOVE this! Where can I get the penguin pattern? Beautiful work!
Terri, the penguin is by Hinzeit. That's my green conversion; the original is blue.
Your talent never fails to amaze me!
If there was an award for most inspirational cross stitch blog, you would definitely be in the running!
I love your winter basket! Well-done! :) Cathryn
Oh I love your Winter Basket. I have to make some smalls sometime soon.
Great winter basket!
So lovely! Your blog is always such a fun and inspiring place to visit.
I love your Winter Basket!!!
I just found your blog and have to ask... how do you get your photos to look so crisp and bright??? Mine are always so blurry and the colors are always waaaaay off! I'd really like to step up my game and learn how to take better photos so any tips would be greatly appreciated!
Welcome, Paisley! I take my photos with an iPad, but whatever you use, the number one rule I follow is to use as much natural light as possible. I never use a flash. Ever. For some reason, it's very difficult to get the colors in needlework to photograph true, so you may have to experiment with different light sources to find the one that gives you the best results. It's not unusual to find me carrying a piece of needlework around the house, trying it next to different windows, to get the best light. And that will vary depending on the time of day, the weather, and even the season. You've given me an idea for a post, so stay tuned!
Thank you for the tips! I did take my last finish outside in direct sunlight and it made a huge difference. I didn't have to try to lighten up the picture at all. Looking forward to your post!
