Weekend Stitching

I made good progress with Summer Iris yesterday. I'm loving the colours of this one and it's such a sweet, simple design. A real pleasure to stitch.


I'm trying to get a little more creative with my photo presentation. Thanks to Tammy giving me some help on where to put new downloaded fonts on to my computer so I can have access to them, I've been able to get more interesting fonts to use. It's a bit exciting when you discover new ways to do things. I'm not what you'd call a whiz when it comes to computers, though I get by. I'm learning a few other things that I had no idea you could do also. :)


Now I know you'll all be wondering how I'm going to 'finish' this one once I finish it. Not being overly into the side of finishing things off into something right now, I will probably put this aside until the time comes that I am creative and confident enough to turn it into a lovely needlework item. We'll see anyway. I've said it before, but the stitching is what I get the most pleasure from.


Hope you're all having a lovely weekend (mine's nearly over now) and your stitching projects are coming along nicely, giving pleasure to your hearts. Thanks for stopping by and for your beautiful comments. (((Hugs)))

Looks beautiful. I too like the stitching part and not the finishing as much.

It's lovely Jane. Such a sweet design. I always love the pictures you put on your blog. I am still very much a basic 'take a picture and upload it' person and I really need to try and improve on that.

Great progress, Jane. It's lovely.

As far as being creative with your photographs - personally, yours is the most creative blog I visit - I would love to do things with my photos in my blog like you do with yours. For example - I love how you display four shots in one - how do you do that?
