Well, I hope you all had a good Christmas, from the looks around blogland it surely would seem that way! I did too - and I'm finally getting onto my computer to join the show and tell.
On Thursday, a very special package arrived from a very special person. Midge from Soggibottom sent me a bag that she made, and I'm the only one in Michigan [or the country?] to have one. I love it so much, and she even put a tag on it that says "Soggibottom". Thank you Midge, my new bag brightens up my room and my heart - I shall carry it with pride!
Gorgeous, isn't it? I want to carry it everywhere!
And two days later it was Christmas. I knew there was a box under the tree, a couple of them, and you know what I was hoping for......a new camera.....
And not just any camera, but the exact one I wanted. They're no longer available, but hubby found the perfect one on ebay, and now it's MINE. I love it so much, I can't even tell you - it fits perfectly in my hand, the pictures are crystal clear, it has a million different settings and manual settings as well - I can get a few different lenses for it - it has ZOOM - it takes movies - oh my. The only problem? The camera has to be turned on to download the pics to the computer. And right now, my old re-chargeable batteries and worthless charger aren't doing the job. So the pictures on the blog today are using my old camera. I can take about 5 pics, but then the batteries have to be charged overnight again in order to download the pics.
So there is a new charger in my future - it better be soon, I want to play!
There was also a smaller box from Amazon.com.
I'm so happy to own this book! Can't wait to play with it, too.
Other than playing with my new toys, it's been slow here in Allie-land, eating leftovers and having cousins stay over. No sewing, but some planning....I'm going to start something next week, and I hope you'll join me! I'll be posting about it in a day or two. Stay tuned!
