Batteries And A Give Away

I can't believe it, but I'm still waiting on batteries.  Hubby bought a lifetime supply so I don't want to go out and get more.  The new charger works great but with the old batteries, I'm only able to get one pic at a time.  So no tutorial yet, but here are a few gratuitous animal shots.

My kitty, Hermoine.

Our "puppy", Abby.

As you can see, I have a lot to learn.  What I like about these shots is that I was all the way across the room, 22ft, using the Zoom.  Zoom rocks.  I love Zoom.  And it's fun to say....zoom zoom zoom.

I'm working on the give-away prize for our Christmas club.  I ran out of black fabric for the binding, so will get some tomorrow.  I'm not feeling well, I think I have an ear infection - the side of my head [not the ear] is very sore, can't lay on it or hold the phone.  And it's coming around the front into my sinuses, so I'm going to the dr. in the morning.  At 9:30 - I can't remember the last time I was up that early!  But that will give me a wonderful start on my day, and I can get all my errands in before the snow hits.

And speaking of snow, y'all in the South better be staying in - you have more snow than we do!  Be careful out there!

Oh yes, the give-away - no, I didn't forget!  The lovely Debbie from Jerusalem Notes: Fiberwork by Debbie is having a great one - 3 gift certificates to The Quilt Show, with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims!  Go see and leave her a comment!

That's all for now, stay warm or cool depending on your climate and keep on sewing!

Debbie said...

Thanks for posting my giveaway, Allie. Those are great photos. I seem to have some trouble using my zoom. It sometimes comes out blurry. Of course, if I would bother to read the instructions, that might not happen, LOL!

Sara said...

Yes, I am in GA and we got 2 inches here today and there is supposed to be more coming our way. Yucky, icy roads! Hoping to get out tomorrow to get to Joann's for some jute webbing. The weather seems to be the talk of the day:)

Terry said...

Those are some crystal clear shots! It must feel good to be able to get what you want out of the camera.

Feel better and we will try not to send our snow up to you!

Cyndi said...

Very nice pics, Allie! Your fur-babies are so sweet! I'm sorry to hear that you're not feeling well and have to go to the doctor. I'll keep you in my prayers, sweet friend, to get well and feel better soon!

Snowing here today..about 5 inches worth so far. That's way better than the 12 inches my uncle in Mississippi got!

XOXO,

Cyndi

Michelle said...

I love critter shots. You've got some real cuties.

Loralynn said...

Oh, my, your kitty is gorgeous! Somewhat similar to mine, only the colors are reversed!

I really hope you are feeling better soon...ear infections suck and are nothing to play around with! We know first hand, my husband let his go on for too long before finally seeing a specialist and ending up having to have surgery because of it. Now he hears almost nothing from that ear, at least until we can get a prostethis surgically implanted. Take very good care of yourself!

What are you talking about? It seems to me that you should be giving lessons. I wish I could take such great pics...
