Joy

Duma Key was fun last night, and I did finish it. Warning to anyone who plans to read the book - don't read the link for "Duma Key" in my blog entry from last night - it is a total spoiler!

I am going to go start my biscornu now for the HoE Biscornu Exchange - I finally found just the perfect one to stitch for my partner. I finished a wee Christmas ornament last night, and got a photo of it today. I didn't care for how it photographed at all - the ribbon looks loose in the photo, but it is not. The ornament also is centered straighter than I think it appears... always so critical of myself (aren't all/most stitchers?) - but anyhow... I will share it:

Great finish, Carol...I think sometimes that photos make things look a little wonky even when they are not. I have noticed that a lot of times when I take pics and I go back and look at the finished piece and it doesn't look that way IRL :)

Have a wonderful evening!!

I seem to have that problem with photos sometimes too. Some people are really talented at staging their pieces too....

Serenity is looking really nice too!

Beautiful ornament and finish Carol. Having seen your work first hand, it is definitely the angle and not the work!!!!

I just happen to know that any ornament or stitched piece from you is nothing short of perfect, so it must be the picture!

Cute ornament! I love this design. I am always so critical of my own work too - it's never perfect it seems!
