Somebody please come and stitch my fingers back one!

Thanks to Kate, I have managed to take a little better looking pictures. She told me to look for a macro setting on my camera. Well I didn't have one but I tried about three other settings and found this setting called shutter... something or the other. But it makes my stitching look a lot better then just the auto setting. Thanks Kate!
So last night I sat down and stitched until my fingers felt like they were going to fall off. As a result I now present to you..... drum roll please.......
By The Bay Needlework's, Winter Cove. Stitched on 32 ct Smokey Pearl with DMC floss. I'am so happy how this piece came out.
I also finished one side of my class piece bag by Lauren Sauer. The center motif was supposed to be done in stem stitches but I got a little carried away after I finished the strawberries and backstitched over half of it before I remembered it. So I decided to leave it backstitched. I think it still looks great!! Shwoooo.... I got a lot done but now I must start the next side of the bag for my class piece. Tata for now!

So glad I could help out, Candi! The pictures are looking great and congrats on your finish.

You know, every time I read the Salty Yarns blog about Sunday afternoon stitching I am so tempted to come out but driving from Cambridge to OC never seems as good when Sunday actually comes around :) Hopefully I'll make it sometime!

Winter Cove is beautiful - I think that the fabric just gave it the right kind of feel. And you class piece looks wonderful so far!

What a great job, I would stitch your fingers back if I could but you should see a surgeon. HAHA:)
