Ooh, I've got lots to tell you about today! First though, as I'm quite excited about it, is my new toy...
Yay! I took an executive decision and decided to just go ahead and buy myself a new camera as I am so fed up with the old one! I only got it this morning, so still figuring out all the different modes etc, but the few test shots I did were certainly about a million times better than my old camera. Said old camera has now been passed on to William - it's still ok for just taking snapshots, it was the closeups that it was pants at - so William is now very pleased too. Smiles all round!
Yesterday my giveaway prize from Paper and String arrived - all these lovely felt and fabric flowers, plus some pretty ribbons too. They're so lovely, I almost don't want to use them, but I will and they will look fab! I quite often make homemade birthday cards and these will look brilliant, although I think the big ones will be saved for sewing onto some bags. Thank you again Sarah!
More little felt birds! Theses ones are smaller - baby birds! The pale green and pink one is definitely my favourite. I could get quite carried away with these, they are so satisfying to make. I think our Christmas tree this year will probably have quite a few nesting in it's branches!!
Finally, I have started on my pink quilt. Just made the one block so far but very happy with how it's turned out. The colours make me so happy! This is going to be an "as and when" project, using up scraps of fabric, so it may take a while - although having said that, William's quilt wasn't exactly done overnight either!!
Now off to practice some more with my new camera!
Have a great weekend everyone!
