Funeral for my beloved camera

As you may have noticed in my last posting the pictures were not up my standard. My poor 4 year old canon decided it did not want to open it' eye anymore. After trying to repair myself I finally took it to a store on Saturday only to be told that it was going to cost $100 to $150 to repair.

I have always loved the close up this little point and shoot achieved so here's hoping it's replacement will be as good. Hopefully picking one up on Friday.

In the meantime here is a picture of one of my current needlepoint projects.

It is by Lee (KB 15) and is to go with the crane kimono I have done for my Fiona. Fiona picked the stitch for the sky from the landscape stitch book by Elaine Oliverio. I have this for my iPhone and pad.

Yesterday I was working at Peacock Alley in Ada MI. As this was not my regular day I took my two girls with me. Amanda did work on her stitching briefly whilst Fiona helped with reorganizing a thread wall and started a friendship braclet using some threads from the bargain bin.

Eyeless bird

Not as frightening as it seems. This months block from Sue Spargo includes the first bird, however for reasons unknown the eye is done next month.

It may be noticed by some that I have placed the wing in the opposite direction to that suggested. The inner part of the wing is partly surrounded by drizzle stitches and back stitch.

Have to love the brightness of his plumes.
