Imagine that title as said by the announcer on The Price is Right. That's how excited I am about my new toy.
It has a macro setting, people! I can do decent closeups now! And it's 10 megapixels! And it was only $85 US! And it is really light and fun and oh I am happy.
My first photos (after some weird closeups of placemats and various/sundry household items because they were there) are of some Bee blocks.
Lauree from my Sew Buzzy bee is making a no-triangle zig zag quilt (like the one I'm planning for my Quilt Hope In project). I was excited to get to try out the technique, and to use shot cottons. Beautiful! She just wanted us to sew the strips and cut the blocks so here is my stack. A couple of the seams got weird despite my best efforts. I actually detest strip piecing for this reason. I have a serious struggle keeping my seams even and straight - I know, what kind of a quilter am I, right? Oh well....
Plus a gratuitous closeup because I could. I know it's a little out of focus. Maybe I should read my instruction booklet? Naaaah. What's the fun in that??
