After I had picked myself up from the floor, calmed Ben with a large dog chew and gone indoors to wash my face(!) it was lunch time. Then there would be time for half an hour’s stitching in the summer house. So I buttered some lovely fresh bread from the farm shop, added some beautiful local strawberries (tiny and sweet, not overblown and tasteless like some of the supermarket offerings), cherry tomatoes and a glass of (local again) Luscombe Scicilian Lemonade – not too sweet and not too fizzy.
And because I was still feeling snap-happy, I took a picture, but this time using my “proper” camera. Close up and ….
… a bit further back. After these and other experiments with phone and camera I have come to the conclusion that my iPhone is great for snapshots while I’m out and about. This is wonderful as I am much more likely to have it with me, than remember to pick up, carry and not lose somewhere, my digital camera. But the camera is definitely superior for close ups and does produce a much better image quality. Mine was not a scientific experiment (!) so I’d be interested to hear any other thoughts.
In the picture above you may have noticed my work in progress - I’m getting a bit ahead of myself with the first project for the September ezine. It’s very Enid Blyton-esque and shows a little woodland elf painting spots on autumn toadstools ..
Can you see the two faces hidden in the tree trunk? Anyway… I thought it would be nice to add him to a quilted cushion cover – this time in autumnal tones – in the same way as the little Dandelion Bunny pattern in the current ezine issue.
But I need some help please …. I’d like to add a few lines of verse in a spiral again – I thought this worked really well on the bunny cushion cover ..
But I can’t think of anything. Can anybody help please? Something autumnal or elfish or …well, I just don’t know – any suggestions very gratefully received!
