Karla Krafts

This is where I log craft projects, ideas, products, materials and sources including links. I'll also document sources of inspiration. I love crafts, including knitting, quilting, scrapbooking, stained glass crafting and others. My specialties were knitted baby caps and glycerin soaps I call "Gemsoaps." Now, I'm into embroidery and beading.

Camera Crazy

I've been pretty sick for the past two weeks now, but that hasn't stopped me from grabbing my camera and seeing what I could capture. I'm still working on the macro and supermacro features. I've practiced with flowers and leaves.

I had to zoom in on this red beauty. I thought it was Virginia Creeper (harmless) but I couldn't for the life of me find more than three leaflets. After zooming in, I found one compound leaf with four leaflets. Can you see it? I have learned that "baby creeper" will only have three leaflets, like poison oak. I guess it's developed a protective mimicry.
