We had a wonderful program on photographing your needlework with your digital point and shoot camera. I think most of us got something out of the class. If nothing else, turn your digital zoom off. You will never get a decent picture with it.
Yesterday I was determined to complete some finishing in order to bring something to this meeting. You may remember my new mantra, "if you start something, finish it." Notice how I didn't put a time limit on it? This is a Shepherds' Bush kit that I bought back in 2001. The stitching was finished in 2005. I remember this project only took a week or two. And I put it in my finished projects box. Where it's been for the past four years.

I love the back. The bees that stand for zero zero remind me of the bees on the Galaga game. I can hear the music in my head every time I look at this.
But wait. There's more.
This is a Textile Heritage kit from England. I can remember stitching this on my in-laws deck while we were home on vacation. Back in 2004!
It's a beautiful peacock piece based on a William de Morgan tile.
What is this? Hmmm. That's one of those secretive type projects I've been working on. Not a secret any more. At least not to those who sit and stitch with me. I'll give more information here as things progress. Let's just say, this is taking longer than I ever intended.
Hope you are all having a cool and wonderful weekend. Meanwhile, I think I could go visit the Rain Forest Hall in the US Botanical Gardens just to cool off.
