I got a pattern for this piece here from this thread:https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=11926.0
Though I must say I got the inspiration from this thread: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=79627.0

Here it is:




I am very proud of it. Much better then my first cross stitch, or my abysmal first sewing project. Grin

Now I just have to figure out what to do with the stuff I stitch. This one is done on my husband's old Boy Scout neckerchief. I might just end up with a house full of tea towels and hankies if I don't figure out something soon. Cheesy

I have been lurking on here for so long. It's nice to post something.

Hard to say since it is a bit blurry but it looks like the stitching is neat...it looks tiny, how big is it.

(btw I know what you mean about a house full of _____________________ - I go through that with everything I do)...

I know. My camera sucks for taking photos of anything to do with thread. I does take good animal photos though. I guess I have to be tankful for that, what with 5 guinea pigs and 2 cats running about Grin

It's about as big as the bottom of a small tea mug. Not all that big. I want to do a bigger one next project. It didn't take me all that long. A few evenings of working on it. It would have gone a ton quicker, but I wanted to do some satin stitch.

Hopefully my next project shows up better on 'film'. Any tips for taking pictures of embroidery?

Probably none that will help you - I have a pretty high-end manual digital camera...I can think of two things that would be helpful - if you can force your camera to use a flash make it do that - it should increase the shutter speed and help with the blur...also if you have a scanner, it might be a better option then...

Yet another reason to get my husband to hook up the scanner. Oh joy!  Undecided I've had a drawing that I have been waiting to scan for months. But he hates it when I install new programs on his computer. It's the whole reason we have seperate computers now. (That and the fact that we don't always share well.)

I tried it with flash but it turned out worse. You can't see the colours at all. I will check the manual though and see if I can figure out how to fiddle with the shutter speed.

Thanks.

Hey, that's me  Cheesy  hehe.  I love the colors you used, the Aquarius one is the other one I am planning on doing, and I'm SO glad you posted!  I completely forgot about the water.  I was planning on stitching mine on gray felt with other "manly" colors, but now I need to get some lighter felt so the water will look better. 

I know what you mean about all the towels...I love making things but there's not a lot of people I could give them as gifts to, unfortunately.  One thing I've considered (but haven't had the time just yet) is stitching and sewing for charity.  That way you get your crafty fix, but you don't have all those finished projects cluttering up your house.

Glad to be helpful. Smiley

That is a good idea, stitching for chairity. But since my sister in law's baby shower is comming up I am sure I'll find something to craft for her.

You never know what a camera will feel like doing...  But the embroidery looks so bright and cheery.  ^_^
