My Macro....

I finally discovered where the macro function/feature was on my camera this morning. I snapped this pic of some embroidery on Kellie's 'secret quilt'.... Not long now Kel and it'll be in the post, sometime this week I promise.. :)
We had a little celebration out at the new farm on Friday night and I just couldn't help but take this pic of the little princess in all her glory... LOL!!! Truth be told.... I actually took this pic to show everyone the new skirt I made her. I used the same tutorial as I did back here....This time round I used denim instead of linen for the solid colour on the skirt. What do you think??? I thought I'd share some links to a few blogs that I've been frequenting lately, they're really worth a look.... There's Knitting Box.... This is a gorgeous blog with fantastic photography and man can this Sydney woman knit... I'm also loving reading through and slowly joining in on the Dear Baby Jane Quilt Along.... Bloom is also joining in on this 'quilting' adventure..... She's an Orange based blogger who is an absolute whizz with a needle and thread....

Also, not many blogger's out there haven't heard of New Zealand based Tiny Happy but just in case you are one of the few who hasn't you really should check out her latest stitching efforts... They're AMAZING and are where the inspiration for the embroidery on my 'secret quilt' came from...

I hope there's at least one new and exciting read in this bunch for all you bloggers out there.... Until next time...... Happy Blogging... :)
