I love reading everyone's blog and seeing all the great photos you share. When it comes to stitching, I'm always inspired by the choices of designs, fabrics, threads and finishes made by so many talented stitchers.
Recently, it was brought to my attention that the photos we post of our stitching are being used by some to stitch from as a way to avoid purchasing a design or chart.
I can't even describe how that makes me feel! For the past couple of weeks, I've been looking at lots of photos. I discovered that there are VERY FEW photos that cannot be used to stitch from. Even the designers themselves are posting lovely photos of their designs that can be used to stitch from.
I do not want to contribute to copyright infringement in any way and I'm still trying to figure out how to show my stitching without actually "showing" my stitching. I've made my stitching photos a much smaller size, but I'm not sure that's enough to prevent the photos being used to stitch from.
I welcome any tips or advice!
A Look Into My Backyard
|I think this is a new bird to my backyard. It's smaller than the Goldfinches and House Finches, but I don't know what kind it is.|
We enjoyed a few warm days, but the weather has turned cold again. It feels more like March than May. I even had to turn the furnace back on!
Until next time...
