BASKET STITCHERY BLOCKS

I have stitchery basket blocks to share with you. I purchased a new camera today and definitely need to read some instructions. I couldn't find a place to crop the photos. A lack of time right now, so I will go ahead and post photos as they are.

The first stitchery is called "Flower Basket" and is from Chestnut Junction. Well, all of these stitcherys today are from Chestnut Junction.
The second one is called "Basket 'O Gingers".
The third is "Basket 'O Crows".
The fourth is called "Basket 'O Bunnies".
And the last one is "Basket 'O Pears".
I am going to have to play some to get the hang of the new camera, downloading to the computer, & then finding the pictures to download to my blog in the way I want.

I'll be back soon with my pictures.

Hey Karen,
Lot the baskets! I had the same things with my new camara. Needed to figure out all the new ways to do things. Enjoy!

I guess I need to read what I write. Love the baskets!

Sue said...

Glad you got a new camera! My husband bought me a new one a year ago, and I'm still camera illiterate:(
It's too professional for me. I'm a simpleton :D

I really love those blocks. Are you putting those in a quilt?

Deb said...

Those blocks looks fantastic! I just love them. Your pictures are good even though you haven't gotten the hang of your camera. I'm hopeless with that stuff - that's why I had kids - to help me out! LOL

Darlene said...

Great Stitcheries!!

I use Picnik.com to crop my photos, it's free to do the simple stuff like cropping and tweaking the photo.

Hi Karen,

Melanie said...

There's nothing like new toys. Have fun. Great site for stitcheries-- thanks for sharing... Questions.. what are your plans for the stitcheries..I'm always interested in new ways to display projects. Also did you used perle cotton or dmc floss? I couldn't tell-- one color or multi color? Nosey, I guess... But I just really loved them....

Shakerwood said...

I just love Chestnut Junction. I have several patterns from her I haven't made yet. As well as 50 other designer's patterns I haven't made yet ! LOL

Oh my gosh these are so GRRRREAT! I've enjoyed this "showing" with smiles and fun Ohhh's and Ahhh's. As well, your work is nothing short of amazing. I mean really. Your stitching is so smooth. No tension anywhere. You're really a talent.

Teresa said...

Hmmm..now all you need is a basket of baskets. These are grea!

Myra said...
