Calico Crossroads, Cross Stitch, Finishes

Summer Grace

Just a quick note to show my latest finish – the final stitches went into this piece on Sunday night, but I haven’t been able to take a good photo of it yet … so these photos will just have to suffice.  It doesn’t do the colours justice, as the green fabric is a lot richer.  Oh well, crappy photos are better than no photos at all … and it’s possibly going to be the final photo (if not post) before I head off on holiday.

I may try and scan this one later, or use my Nikon camera and see if I can get a more accurate result – my Lumix does a fantastic job of the close-ups, which is why I bought it, but the colour representation leaves a lot to be desired most of the time for these types of photos 😦
