Christmas

I got a new camera for Christmas so I've been having lots of fun taking pictures to get to know all the features.  It's a Canon Powershotsx230, just incase you were wondering.

Delores, my dinosaur,
looking fierce as ever!




My books looking not so tidy
using the miniature effect,
blurring the top and bottom.

This is something I'm playing around with, piecing several fabrics into a block.
I used the Color Accent effect to keep the pink and make everything else black and white.

Thanks for the camera Mom!



Here's a peak at what I've been up to lately.  I'm very excited about a purse I made for myself.  It turned out beautifully.  I used some fabric I bought a while back, but had not decided what to do with it, plus a little scrap fabric I won in a recent giveway.  The purse is the 241 Tote pattern from Noodlehead. The one thing I changed was the clasp.  The pattern called for the clasp to be placed inside the tote which prevented me from reversing it and enjoying the inside pattern when I feel like a change.
