I used to do a lot of cross-stitching.
Haven't done any in the past few years....
The above is a sweat shirt made for me by my friend, Debbie, about 25 years ago!

Weekly Challenge: "Open and Narrow".
The challenge this week is to open your lenses all the way and use the largest apertures possible (f/1.4, f/1.8, f/2.8, f/3.5, f/4, etc.)
to achieve a narrow depth of field.

See how other narrow Pbasers were open to the challenge HERE

Check out other monochromatic Pbasers who are always on the hunt HERE
