Not much sewing…

Lots of stuff goin’ on, but not much of it involves needle and thread!New camera 8

Spending time with this guy is a priority and could there be a better model for my new camera?

And even with the cold, weird, rainy spring we’ve had, I have a lot of this kind of stuff on my mind.

The look of simple hand stitching is growing on me. My embroidery thread is a variegated gray-black and works well with the stones.

Not too good on the close ups, yet, but my old camera wouldn’t even let me focus this closely.
