Eye of the Needle


Well I had no new pictures for today so yesterday I was wandering around the house camera in hand. I was looking for something, anything, to take a picture of. 

 Karen is sewing some soft toys for Christmas presents - I can't show you the finished articles as certain people may or may not be reading my blog.  So I decided to take some pictures of the thread.  
You know I took 50 shots until I got one I was happy with lol.
  
Anyway this is them.

 I've linked up today with

Great captures Ellie! I am always wandering around the house looking for subject matter. You did good with these!

a great macro!

Jill said...

These are fantastic! I think it is so much fun to find something we consider ordinary and make it look like this through a camera lens. Great job, Ellie!

Gattina said...

What nice pictures!

Rosie said...

Sometimes it's really hard to find something to take a picture of, especially when the weather outside is not so inviting...! You made a wonderful choice Ellie! And maybe you can show the finished toys after Christmas!

Definitely worth the 50 shots Ellie. These are wonderful macros, and I just love the colors! Beautifully done.

Thank you so much for sharing today at The Creative Exchange.

Have a wonderful evening!

I love the second photo -- the needle, the wood, the thimble, and the thread -- all lovely.

Jeanne said...

The thread is such a pretty color, but what I love is that thimble hiding over there in the corner. Reminds me of my grandmother who had such a lovely thimble collection. Have a great day!

Very pretty, Ellie! I always love seeing photos of people creating things with their hands -- so satisfying. :)

These are wonderful images, Elie! Terrific composition and detail. The warm colors are so very pretty against the wood grain of the table. Very nice, indeed!

Dearest Ellie,
Oh, lovely fluffy shots♡♡♡
I used to (haha, when young) enjoy knitting; easy ones.
Made me feel warm, my friend♬♬♬
