Holly's Christmas Quilt
(finished just in time to snuggle with it on Christmas eve, whew!)
She said it was "the best gift ever, Mommy!"
I jammed my right thumb (hugely swollen, black & blue!)
at a workout class the day after I finished this quilt top.
So free motion quilting was out of the question.
Instead I quilted "organic" (ie not so straight) lines every 1-2 inches.
I love the way it looks!
The pattern is Posh by Chez Moi (free!), found here.
The fabrics are from the Be Merry collection by Riley Blake.
As I look at these photos, I am thinking that it's time for a new camera.
(and my birthday is next week!)
After Christmas my husband and I were lamenting so many "missed" moments -- because so many of our photos are out of focus or over exposed. Our new, expensive SLR camera isn't so new anymore! We purchased it prior to my brother's wedding -- over 8 years ago -- and we've taken thousands and thousands of pictures with it. Now about half of the time it gives me an error message (and won't shoot at all), and 50-75% of my photos are blurry. So frustrating!
This photo, for example, is probably our best family Christmas photo.
It makes me so sad that it's so blurry!
(although I have to say it's not quite as noticeable how bad it is within a blog!)
I would love any advice on cameras - do you love yours?
