My son was here this evening with his wife, they came for dinner. While he was here he showed me how to take a photo with my digital camera so that there wouldn't be a glare when I photographed something that was behind glass. This is the result, which I'm pleased with. I stitched this a couple of years ago. At first I wasn't very pleased with the leaves. They are stitched with rayon thread and I didn't follow the instructions for the colours that came with the kit, they just didn't look right so I used my own judgement with the colour and decided they look ok. The blackberries are stitched exactly according to the kit and they really do look like real berries.

What a beautiful photo of a lovely stitchery. The blackberries do look very real indeed. And well done with the leaves too.
