New Camera n Inspiration for WIP

Well I finally have my new camera! A Kodak Z650, 6.1 MP, 10x Optical Zoom. Now all I need to do is to work out how to use all the fancy features.

So I decided to try out my new camera on a x-stitch project, that I am ashamed to say has been on it's frame for over two years. It is one of three I am doing for my bedroom wall, the other two are finished (will photograph later).

I've been doing a little bit here and there, but never quite getting back into the swing, but that has all changed. As with most of my x-stitch projects, they are of animals or birds, and 9 times out of 10 are a "Ross Original"by Graeme Ross. Once I have the eye or eyes stitched, I just have to finish them. Can't stand them looking at me half finished.

Update photos next Friday

First Post--Very Original

OK first post, how scary. Finally decided to give this "blogging" thing a go. So when do I decide to start, two days before going away. I'm off to my parents farm, for the kidding season. My Mum breeds dairy goats, and like on horse studs I get to do night duty... think of midwife at midnight.

All I have to do is decide what to take with me, quilting is out, I have 3 knitted blankets, 3 crochet blankets, and 1 x-stitch project [that has been on the frame for 2 years]. You'll have to wait and see what gets done... if any.

Just one picture, this is 'Baby' she was born 26 Dec 2004, the day and around the time that the Tsunami hit. Her leg was broken during delivery, big kid, old doe, lot of hard work getting her out. So I'm off to be with Baby, while she has her first babies. Baby's proper name is:-
