odd shot

***UPDATE***I forgot to mention again that I will be drawing a winning name for my necklace (see below) on Friday, August 29. If you'd like your name to be in the running, please leave a comment on this post before that fateful day.

If you're familiar with Mrs. Nesbitt you know about her odd shots. I don't usually participate in posting odd photos, but this is too good not to share. My niece Katie took it with her waterproof camera, Dylan in the motel pool while we were in Iowa for my brother's wedding to the lovely and charming (and I'm not exaggerating, she is both) Lisa.

I guess this could be classified as an odd shot, too. I will attempt to take a better photo but for now this is it. This is the necklace I've chosen to do the drawing for in observance of my first blogging anniversary. It is composed of glass pearls, freshwater pearls, fire crab agate, and carnelian chips. It has a small PMC ring charm strung on one of the bead strands, which this photo doesn't show. It really is a pretty necklace in spite of the horrid photo.

It is about 18" long and sits comfortably at the base of the neck. I took the photo against a red cloth--obviously not the best choice.

Hope you are all having a good Wednesday.

First, thank you for your recent comment on my blog about the "so-called" precision of my TAST stitch. I had to laugh out loud! I've never actually been very precise and I don't really have much patience at all. I'm happy to know, however, that some of the results give this impression!

I really like your "odd shot". I didn't know a personal, underwater camera could take such an amazingly good, clear photo. The necklace is great and I like your recent work too! I've got a "black thumb" so really enjoy looking at other's pretty flowers....ones I can't accidentally kill!

Great stuff!

Great shot and I love the necklace! I did have a worried moment when I read your post, I thought you were going to draw it as in with a pencil! I must be overdoing it!!!

Maureen said...

Just my colours, thanks for your comments re mum!

really great "odd shot" and what fun that an underwater camera works that well! I don't think the necklace looks bad at all! In fact, it is very pretty!
