My Camera

  Well, it is Sunday evening and it has been a different kind of weekend, we didn't make it to church today. Our son and his girlfriend were here for the weekend so we went out for brunch with them instead. They wanted to get home, so they left about 2, and our middle daughter went to take a nap. She and her brother have been living on Thera- Flu this weekend.
  So, the camera, is not new in the normal terms, since I have had it for at least a year and maybe more. I still think of it as new though because I have not figured out how to use all the things on it. My cousins girlfriend is a photographer, and can figure out most of the point and shoot cameras pretty easy. She and I talked about mine at the family reunion and then again when we got together with other family for a birthday a couple of weeks ago. She said she would be happy to help me figure it out when she had time. Today she had time, and she came over here so we could use the sewing machine and the areas that I use the camera in for the blog and my tutorials. I am so excited that I finally have a good idea that I can use some of the stuff on it. My photos should look much better when I take the next round of them. I wish I had some to show you, but I have not loaded any on the computer and they are not of anything other than just fabric on the sewing machine. The fact that you can see exactly where it is and see the seam allowance measurements without a glare is amazing to me. I got the new camera because it took very clear pictures and had a lot of features. Not being able to use the features was frustrating. As a matter of fact just a week or two ago I was ready to give it to my daughter and take my old one back from her. I at least knew how to use it, and it does have some cool features, that I used when I had it. Who knows I might do a better job with that one too now that I know what some of that stuff does.
Well, I just had to share my excitement , so yall have a quilty week, until I get back to you. Tennye
