My Poor Camera!

So I managed to drop my camera today and this in now the quality of photo I'm getting out of it!

See how badly out of focus it is? It now won't focus around the edges of a photo at all! But then the centre doesn't look great either.

A minute before the awful photo I took this photo

Then in trying to get the scene set for the second photo I manage to funble the camera and drop it straight down onto concrete! With the lens open! I am so annoyed with myself. I have no clue whether I will be able to get it fixed or even if it's worth it! I love this little camera my parents gave it to me and it's done everything I've asked of it :(

Now I will explain those two photos, I decided while shopping for my black thread that I really liked the DMC colour 4030 it's one of the variegated ones. So I bought a couple of matching type colours with no real clue as to what I wanted to use them for.

When I took them downstairs this morning I came across this greyish blue aida and when I put them on it I fell in love with the colours. I then glanced left and saw the pattern and I knew what I wanted to stitch with these colours. Though I still don't know whether I will make a tonne of biscornus or one big piece as there are 13 squares in this pattern!

The first photo (the very out of focus one) is of the colours for the other Jardin prive pattern that I had bought. It is the Sampler aux fleurs and I have a cream coloured aida and a purple variegated thread DMC 52. The fabric was from a whole pile my grandma gave me and it's a good excuse to use it and the colours look great.

I do also have some penguins to show you which I took photos of before I dropped my camera but I will do a big IHSW post tomorrow with those in it. I keep hoping that I will turn around and my camera has started working I don't think that will be the case though.



  1. Oh, Caitlin, how frustrating! Fingers crossed it fixes itself overnight. Your variegated threads are lovely, though.

  2. I hope your poor camera can be fixed!

  3. So sorry about your camera, I know what you mean I'm just learning what I can do with the old one I have, it would kill me to have to learn how to use a new one. I love the colors choices you've made can't wait to see some stitches.

  4. Wow! That sure sucks about your camera! What an important tool for a blogger! I must admit I'm drawn to blogs with pictures!

    What beautiful floss and fabric you've got there!


Thank you for your comments I love to hear from you.
