What I've been up to this weekend

My birthday was last week, and I got a new toy:  a Canon Rebel XS DSLR camera.  I have done some sewing this weekend, but I haven't finished anything because I've been learning how to use it.  It does have an automatic mode, but I've been trying to learn to shoot in manual mode because I hear it really can change the quality of your photos. 

I'm still learning, but I think some of these turned out pretty good! 


  1. Those are some sweet pictures of your girls! I have a DSLR on my wish list but haven't decided what I want. You'll have to do an update post after you've had a while to play with your new camera and share what you like/dislike about it.

  2. Thanks, Cindy! That's a great idea. Plus, it will give me an excuse to write more about my camera here on my sewing blog :)
