HAED Update

I have to admit to concentrating on Enchanted Flute since I last blogged. I'm really enjoying the challenge of it, and have even joined Our Friends HEAD sal blog to keep me motivated and watch what others are doing. There is some amazing stitching going on there and worth a look even if you're not a HEAD fan.

My camera and I have had a long talk about it's recent behaviour and I've even threatened it with the scanner. I've always believe that you shouldn't make a threat that you won't carry out, so I've used the scanner and the camera to take pics of Enchanged Flute. I am posting them both in the interests of research, so that I know which looks best and if the camera and I have a future!

So, this one is from the scanner:-
and this is from the camera.

In fairness, I think the camera has justified itself. The colour are much truer. They should be blues, not purples. Interesting experiment though, and shows that the camera is worth perservering with.

Happy stitching all.

Oh totally funny. What til you try to get that soft cream color of your favorite new and my camera sometimes do not get along at all!!! But I do like being able to have the pics of my work, because most of it leaves home right after it's finished! LOVE LOVE this piece. Nice progress for you.

Glad to read you are enjoying our HAED SAL blog. We are very happy that we started it! So nice to meet new friends and see all those wonderful cross stitching. It does encourage me too.

WOW! You have been working hard on this one! It's looking awesome Cathe.

The scanner makes the image sharper if that helps any.
