August's Ornament In September

Finally! Another commitment done! I've finished up the ornament I should of finished in August (remember I like to stitch up one ornament a month).
Snowman Mitten Ornament

Just Cross Stitch 2005 Ornament Issue
Stitched on 28ct linen using DMC

I've started up another small project tonight but I won't be sharing pictures or details. Its the gift I promised to Judy for winning my 800th post draw. Finally Judy I've gotten to it... and well it took awhile to pick the right thing. Once Judy's giftie is done I have one more RR to stitch (Sweetheart Tree) and then I'll be obligation free for at least a few weeks which will be nice!
Lynn also wanted to know what type of camera I use... its a Panasonic Lumix its probably their middle model in that line (not cheap but not super expensive) I bought it about a year ago now. If I could afford one I'd kill to have a Digital SLR so I could truly have control over what pictures I take... they are coming down in price but still that's a chunk of money to come up with! When it comes to digital cameras you really do get what you pay for.

I use a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX1 that I bought some time ago. I shoot in RAW format. It's macro ability is just as good as my husband's Canon EOS Mark II and it weighs about 10 pounds less! I think it is better to get a good photo processing program than a top of the line camera. We have been using Photoshop since Photoshop 0.9, currently at Photoshop CS3, but I know that is pretty expensive for first time users. Adobe and others make some cheaper photo processing software. They can clean up and adjust your pictures so that you don't need a top of the line SLR.

I looked at that camera when I upgraded a few months ago. I ended up getting the latest Sony which is just one step down from a digital SLR. That's my dream someday as well. This one has a 15x optical zoom and an infrared for taking pics in dark places. Pefect for the shots I need to take in all those dark churches Bob performs in.
Your snowman is just too cute! I adore snowman. They always make me smile.

Well done on your ornament finish. You're very organised, doing one a month. I feel I should do the same. Only I don't - I seem to prefer the mad autumn panic to get everything done in time. Did I said 'prefer', surely I meant 'end up doing'??!! Well done!

Luv your orn!!! Totally cute : )

Katie said...

Oh I love that mitten! Awesome job!! I've been hesitant to start it as I'm not quite sure just how I'd 'finish' it. I'm sure you'll have something spectacular :)

Michelle said...

Congrats on the finish. Eric has a Canon Rebel XT, and loves it. It was so worth the price for him. I'm happy with my Canon Powershot (at least I think that's what it is!)
