EMPS #42 -- Seeing Stars









Today is Carly's Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot (actually #43) with the theme of "Seeing Stars." I found that I have two items hanging on my utility room walls that fit the bill. First is the picture of a cat in front of the window at night, with stars dotting the sky behind him.


















The second picture is a lone star quilt pattern that I did in counted cross-stitch a number of years ago, with a stuffed cat off to the side of it. (Do you see a cat theme here? LOL!) This is one of my favorite cross-stitched items.






















Carly wants to know for extra credit what it was like to get these shots. Were there any complicating factors? I didn't have any difficulties at all, nor did I need special settings using my Nikon Coolpix. It was just point and shoot, although I did some cropping of the picture of the cross-stitch star in Paint Shop Pro 9.

Have some fun and go to Carly's URL (linked in the first sentence) to see how to play this game!

Hi Suzanne :)

You do such lovely cross stitch work! I am always impressed when I see it, and this one is really lovely. :) Nicely done.

Pretty stars! :-)

Yep, this fits the theme very well. I enjoy seeing pictures of somebody's own artwork. I'm not good at crafts at all so I have a lot of admiration for those that can.

I like the cross-stitch star, it must have taken a lot of time to complete it.It really is so lovely.
