Better photos and a few other things…

So I finally got some better photos off my camera – yesterdays photos were taken with my phone.

I think these are better photos 😀

These colours are truer to life I think…

I have also made quite a bit of progress on Lily. She is at work, so I don’t have photos. but I think she is now over half done.

Now a poll:

I am still alive. We finally have internet connected… that was a slow process.

Here she is again!

I couldn’t find my beading needles. I am sure I have 2 packs of them, and I know I was stitching with them recently as I used them to stitch the skin over 1 on Fairy Queen (Passione Ricamo), but they aren’t in the normal places I put my stitching stuff… I could find the beading thread though… so that is one half of it!

So I started the back stitch. There is a LOT! It is going to take me a little while, especially the nights where I am only stitching for an hour or two… my stitching time has been less recently for a variety of reasons, but a big part is I have been getting home later than normal.

Pictures!!!

Watergoddess update

The metallics look good but are annoying me!

Here she is sitting on her lily pad. I think the photo today shows up the colours in her really well 😀
