bits'n'pieces

I've been playing with my new camera ... I finally got myself a digital SLR, and I'm really enjoying learning to use an SLR again ...


It took me a while to decide, but I eventually chose a Pentax K-r. As my old manual SLR was a Pentax, the lenses, filters and accessories I had could be used on a Pentax digital camera, so in the end I only needed to buy the camera body. I'm very happy with it, and stoked to have another Pentax - this will be my third.


I also managed to get productive last night and package up some more bits'n'pieces fabric packs - these just seem disappear from the shop, so get in quick if you'd like one.

Have a great Tuesday!

Hello lovely Nic! I've been thinking about you these past few days ... the last time we spoke you mentioned there were changes a foot ... I hope everything is going well? Looks like you're having fun with the new DSLR. And I wish I had your patience - the blue liberty quilt looks awesome - love the fabrics you have chosen,

We love our digital SLR too - can't believe we had a "point & shoot" for so long.

Oh my goodness, I am very envious of you having a digital Pentax SLR! I had an old Pentax SLR years ago. Wish I had kept it to do what you have done - excellent idea! And gorgeous photos!
