a new camera and a bit of crafting

Once my dear husband finally got out of the hospital last week, I got one of the best Christmas presents I have gotten for years. We picked out this. My old camera was ok, and will still reside in my purse for quick pics, but I have been wanted something with a bit better definition. 10.1 mega pixels should do it. The strap was a bit plain (basic black) so I decided to tweak it. Some of my favorite fabric, yo-yos, and buttons from Melissa in New Zealand. Now we're talking!

I have been able to sew a bit today. In other words, I have had a few minutes to myself. Much needed! Made a few Kleenex Cozies and have a few more in various stages. May as well try to make these colds and sneezes stylish! More baby blankets to come soon. I swear, everyone at my husband's work is pregnant! Luckily, I have a few months on all of them. Hope your New Year has been good so far. Best wishes for the next 363 days.

Im so glad I could be of help picking out the camera. I have to say I think it was the least painful shoping I have ever done with you. By the way where was I when this all went down??????????
