Camera and Pink Blogs

My new baby Nikon SLR camera arrived home yesterday afternoon. I am so excited. Hopefully I'll get a chance before the weekend to take some photos. We had to charge the battery for a long time last night - the first charge :-). If I have to be honest, I don't have a clue how to use a SLR camera but will go for lessons..... I am so excited about being able to take some really cool pictures. Yes, I know you can take cool pictures with a compact digital camera but still.......

Now I just need to build a design wall and then I'll be able to take awesome photos of my quilts - quilts you say, at the moment, more like quilt pieces......Am hoping to rectify that next weekend :D

I don't know why I changed the colour scheme of my blog to pink yesterday - maybe I was in a pink mood :LOL. It won't last long - will change it to something else soon.

Time flies when you are having fun

Wow, it's 10 Feb already. Life is rushing by at a very fast pace. The feeling of "Slow down World. I want to catch up" comes to mind :LOL. Isn't there a popular song with this theme?

Life is passing by in a blur of computer programming, guitar lessons, Orthodontist appointments, training dogs in the rain, kids etc. Hey, Quilting was not mentioned in the above blur...... Sad - I will really have to do something about the lack of quilting......It is soul destroying. I am, however, progressing on my Needlepoint work. Sitting in the Orthodontist's rooms waiting provides the perfect opportunity to do handwork.

The wonderful news is that I am considering a new camera - a Nikon D60 SLR camera. I have never had my own camera in my life so am very excited.. so look forward to some fantastic photos on the blog. I just have to remember to take it with me everywhere I go :LOL

Oh other Burmese is due to give birth to her kittens from about 22 Feb. That's in less than 2 weeks time. She is starting to get quite fat and move slowly. She can no longer jump onto the kitchen counter to get to her food.
