A Couple of ATS Shots

Gentle Readers and Dear Friends the weekend was certainly busy - we had a house full!!  Rico's Mom, two nieces, great niece and great nephew were all visiting.  They got into town Saturday afternoon.  They all live down near Fresno and where escaping the 100+ heat.  The weather here in the City was a blustery, low 70 Saturday and Sunday it got even more windy and quite a bit cooler - with some fog rolling in over Twin Peaks.

Before they got here I ran around to the do some thrifting Saturday morning and even made it to two Estate sales and found absolutely nothing that I really wanted and couldn't live without.  I guess it is persistence that leads one to find those great deals!!

I worked some on ATS and took some not so great shots with my new camera - 


I am still getting used to manipulating and moving pictures around... I am still working on the tree.  I'll get the leaves finished up then the fruit.  Here is an overall shot of the piece....

Take care,

Love the new camera, Enjoy it! ATS is moving along nicely - someday the pattern will find its way into my house. Have picked it up several times, but always put it back on the rack!!

Good progress on ATS!
When I was stitching it, I didn't think I would ever finish it!
It's a pain, but it will be worth it when it's finished!

OMG! With you not being able to post pics due to the camera issues, so much progress on ATS has been done. It took my breath away. This is such a beautiful piece. The design and colors are stunning, and it was so neat to see such a big change from the last update on it.

ATS is looking amazing. I like the new camera, and it takes nice pictures! Hope you have had a fabulous time with family visiting. We have been doing the same. It's always a joy, but tiring as well!
Enjoy the rest of your week.
