LHN - My Needle's Work
I took this picture using my digital camera (Canon IXUS 75). I just wanted to see how it would come out compared to using my scanner which is what I usually do for my progress pictures. It's probably a bit more true to life looking than the scanned images.
The CC thread called Weeping Willow that came with my pattern has a lot of dark green running through it and not much light. The picture that comes with the pattern shows more of a lighter shade with no dark at all. That's the only thing about hand dyed threads, there seems to be quite a variance in dye lots.
Mum and Dad are coming over to visit tomorrow, so I may not get any stitching done. I've got some needlework information printed up to give to Mum, no doubt we'll talk about that. She doesn't have the Internet so I try to keep her up to date with what's going on in the world of needlework. I'll be able to show her some of my stash I received lately too.
