Oooh look what I found! A recently-completed Daisychain ABC sampler over at One Sheepish Girl. So pretty! Go check it out, and say hi to Meredith while you’re over there. : ) I just discovered her blog today while looking for photos of finished samplers, and it is such a sweet and gorgeous site.
As for my sampler, not a stitch of progress has been made since my last post! I want to pick it up again tonight before bed, so keep your fingers crossed that I don’t fall asleep before I get to it.
In other crafty news, I was at the bookstore again today, and I stumbled across an interesting book: The Crafter’s Guide to Taking Great Photos. Ah, the nemesis of all craft blogs – crappy photos! I admit that I’m plagued by Crappy Photo Syndrome (CPS), which I usually blame on my cheapo camera and lack of free time during natural light hours. However, this book got me thinking about making a light box to at least get a little bit of improvement. Any thoughts/experience with this? Or do I really just need a better camera?
Finally, since no blog post is complete without a photo, I present my very first attempt at embroidery – a little likeness of Maggie all curled up in blissful sleep. (Haha, of course it would be a cat! Did you have any doubt?) I made this in January of this year – not bad for my first try. I found the cat pattern online here – give it a shot to honor the sweet kitty in your life.
Have a great night and happy crafting!
