WOW What a difference a new camera makes!

Santa brought me a new camera and WOW!   What improvements in digital cameras in 5 years.   So much so I replaced some of the earlier Christmas decoration photos.  Still learning all the ins and outs and settings but have taken the time to take shots of my most recent stitching.
This is the second row of the mosiac muse of Jeannette Douglas' stitching album.   I had all the invert mosiac stitches in and had to frog them and re-stitch.    I am getting there and enjoying the progress.  Update:    I finshed both this row and the row above on the evening of the 26th.   It was easier to measure the end of the top row against the length of the second row.   So once finished the second row, I finished the four or five columns of the mosaic stitches in row one.   This project will be set aside while I return to work on my Petite Sampling Etui.......all four sides and the bottom at a minimum need to be completed by February 8th!!!!  Right now I am stitches away from side three completion.   Sides one, two and the bottom are complete.   Leaving me side four to complete.......stitching porgress will be posted because I think it helps me be able to see my own progress.

Whoa Nelly! Those are awesome pics! Isn't it fun to be able to get right up close and show those stitches? Your stitches are even more perfect up close, how is that possible since they were already totally perfect! giggle.

Enjoy your new camera :) We want lots of pics now, please.

Hugs

LOL Once I finished the row and moved on, I noticed somewhere in the middle I cross one of the oblong crosses out of order!
