A self-indulgent blather by Amy Mayen
This was one of the first photos taken with my new camera. I came home one day and Mr. SewsNBows got me the camera & all the equipment I’ve been coveting for so long. Ain’t he sweet? Gaw, I just want to squish him up and hang him from my rear view mirror cuz I love him so much!
(Paula Abdul said that once…anybody remember that?)
I’ve been messing with it a while now…getting more comfortable. There sure are a lot of buttons though. And nobody ever accused me of being the brightest light bulb in the box!
I thought having the fancy camera would make my pictures automatically awesome.
Don’t get me wrong- it does help! But, it turns out there’s actual skill required. So thanks for hangin’ in there with me.
So far this week I’ve made a boy doll outfit and a top for Sofie using the Scirocco pattern from Figgys. I need to get photos for you…
Plus I need to do a hardcore photo-shoot for the Sew Many Books series over at Nap Time Creations! Emily set up a Pinterest board and everything. That means its officially a thing. An important thing.
I’m really excited about my project…but super nervous because I want my photos to capture the spirit of the book I chose. It’s a special book. I just need my post to turn out as good as it is in my head.
Did ya’ll see my guest post over at Crafty Meggy’s the other day? If you hoard patterns, you better go make sure you have all my top picks for free patterns on the web.
Oh, one last thing before I go…then I promise this post will be over! I made jam all day yesterday, and canned tomatoes & okra in the pressure cooker. I feel a little accomplished for that. Generally, I just avoid the kitchen and food related tasks. So, yeah…a little proud!
What’ve you been up to this week?
