I've shown you my now finished redwork (previous post) of which I thoroughly enjoyed working on. I decided I was a big girl now and could graduate to a finer sized weave of material, therefore making the aida cloth no longer my favorite. I feel like a child with a cardboard laceing toy with that aida now!!
But, before my official graduation, I wanted to show you what I finished in January.
I apologize for the terrible photography...more on that at the bottom of this post.
But, also sorry for the wrinkled pieces! I have a hate/hate relationship with my iron.
I've also included a simple needle keep that I made out of an old bit of quilt.
I am having a problem with my vision it seems....every time I take a picture with my Nikon, I look at it from the screen on the back of the camera. It looks clear and crisp. THEN, I go to the computer, tranfer the images, and they look BLURRY!!!
What's the deal??? Is it me? or could it actually be the Camera?
Maybe it's the editing software. I don't know, but I'm depressed about it.
Do any of y'all have problems with your camera editing software? In fact, could you please tell me what software you use? I have this wonderful camera, a Nikon D5000
It's like putting a sports car into the hands of a 6 year old I know, but still, shouldn't I be able to take some good photos by now? I mean, I've had it for over a year!!
I don't know how to use it to its full potential, but at least sometimes I get a few good shots.
What really makes my day go south though is when I 'think' I've taken some good photos and then I get to my computer.
I've been using an old software edition from my old Kodak easyshare camera. It was fine. But when I went to try to use the Nikon software that came with that camera, I just couldn't figure out the editing. No where does it let me crop, adjustments of photos are few, and I'm at a loss as to what to do.
So, my question to you is, what software is the least expensive, and the easiest to use???
I went to the office supply store near us (45 minutes away!), and Photoshop software made me loose my appetite. Here I was all ready to shell out some big bucks (@50 of them), and lo and behold, they wanted my first born son and my right arm for the LEAST expensive version!!!
When I took the photo of the sampler above, the picture looked clear to me in the screen on the camera back. I even showed it to my husband to PROVE that I could take a clear picture.
I guess I'm just getting old. These bifocals are a pain too. I finally am getting used to wearing them, and I haven't fallen because of them (after a year and a half it's about time I am used to them!), but they are a real pain.
Well, enough of that. If any of you have any suggestions, I would truly appreciate them!
If you'd like to join me for Pearls and Lace Thursday this week please add the url code of your post to the link below. I've really had fun doing these, but I'm getting tired people. I think this might be the last one for a while, so I'd like to thank you all for joining the party and making it so much fun to blog.
I hope you all have a wonderful week!
