Trying a Different Picture Taking Location

I have started working on Drawn Thread B My Valentine.  
I don't have the thread  the pattern called for so, I'm improvising.  
I have had to take some of the stitching out but, I'm pretty pleased with how it is turning out.  
 So many time, my pictures look too yellow.  
I thought I would try taking the pictures in my laundry room where there is florescent light.  
There is some shadow but, the colors look a little more true but. kind of dark.  
What I probably need is a better camera but, I do only do this for fun.  
 I was showing someone some pictures of finished projects.  
I wasn't on my home computer so I Googled my blog site. 
I found out that some of my pictures have been pinned on Pinetrest.
Now I feel like a celebrity.  
Decided I needed a little extra cuteness to this blog and I was able to get a fairly good picture of Buster before he turned his he did on the second picture I took.  Henry Ford was too much of a wild child and wouldn't sit still.  Typical!

Came back to this spot.  We saw the Imitation Game this weekend.  I highly recommend it.  I want to see American Sniper.  Maybe next weekend.

Just hanging into January.  Should have started sorting patterns but, watched the football game instead.  I don't normally watch football but, Green Bay was in the Championship.  Oh well...there is always next year.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend.  Have a great week.  Thanks for stopping and the great comments.

Keep on Stitching.


  1. Sweet stitches! Still reeling over that Green Bay game!

  2. Love that pretty start. I have a son who did 2 tours in Iraq, He flew Blackhawks. Not sure I can watch American Sniper. It does look like a great picture.

  3. Well as a Washingtonian, I'm pretty thrilled with the outcome of the football game, but admit the Hawks didn't play like their usual selves until the last few minutes. Green Bay is a great team. :)

  4. This is such a pretty piece.
    Buster is too cute. :)
    Too bad the Packers didn't win, but I'm glad the Seahawks get to go to the SuperBowl.
