A New Toy!
I've been waiting for this for a while and today it finally came - my lovely new camera. It has an 18x zoom and all kinds of fancy settings which I still have to get to grips with, on the technical front I am not a fast learner:) One of the settings is a night time one and another is specifically for sunsets so I have great hopes of these eventually. I've been playing with it a little so will just add some of my first efforts for you to see - hopefully there will be better and more interesting ones to come in the future. None are outdoors because it has been wet and windy all day.
This is the blanket that I've just finished for Gabriel, some of you may feel that you've seen it before as indeed you have - it's the same one I made for Kaitlyn but in primrose instead of white. I've used the 'any light' setting for this.
Mr B Baggins looking highly suspicious of my activities! His bedding looks a mess but every day after I have carefully laid it out all neat and comfy looking he equally carefully scrapes half of them into an untidy but obviously more satisfactory heap.
Some of my small friends, using the 'any light' setting again, I haven't mentioned my teddy bears before, I don't exactly collect them but sometimes one 'speaks' to me and I have to take him home with me. It's actually a few years since any additions have been made but that doesn't mean that there won't be the odd new one in the future!
The last picture was actually taken with my old camera which I've passed on to Neil and Cesca - Cesca took this one. Being a dad is obviously an exhausting business:):)
