Another one's done
I'm still playing with my new camera, and overall love the pictures. However, getting the right lighting to keep the colors true is still a bit of a challenge. The Doubleflips are done on 28 ct Lambswool, which is actually more tan than this, and the Little Boy Blue cashel on the below Joyful Summer is actually a paler blue. The earlier postings are more true in color. No idea why when I put them right next to each other to take the pictures one went lighter in color and the other darker, I'd have thought they would have each gone the same way.
My next one is Joyful Summer, and I got the large flower motif done. This is an easy and fun stitch, but it does have a bit of a challenge in that it has french knots in quite a few places and French knots are not my strong point. So far they've been the birds eyes and the center of the flower, and they don't look to bad I think, so fingers crossed the rest go smoothly.
