Time flies. . .

when you are having fun! We had a great time at our little stitching slumber party last week. Of course the time slips by so fast - it seems like you just got there and it is time to leave. We stitched late Thursday night and most of the day on Friday - I didn't get home until 6:00 Friday evening! I haven't taken any pictures of my project yet. At this point, I may just wait until it is finished to photograph it. Of course that would mean that I would have to actually find time to stitch which has not happened the past couple of days.

I stitched up this little pillow for Sherry for Christmas. The chart is by Lizzie Kate and I put it in a pre-made pillow by Stitch-A-Gift. It has been finished for awhile but I didn't want to post it until I gave it to her since she occasionally visits here.
Saturday we were supposed to meet Buddy & Sherry for dinner and a movie, but they had to cancel at the last minute so instead of going to the movie, we made a couple of Christmas returns and then I went shopping with my gift cards. I had been saving two from last Christmas and I got a few more this year. I was saving them to get myself a new digital camera. Not that anything is wrong with the one I have, it is just too big and I find myself not taking it when I go anywhere because it is too much trouble so I was in the market for a small one I could drop in my purse and hopefully have with me to take pictures when I think 'gee, I wish I had my camera'! After spending over an hour looking at the options, I ended up with this one.

So far, I've charged the battery and loaded it and the memory chip. I'm still looking through the book trying to figure out exactly what it does. I'm afraid it might take awhile to figure it all out!
I got all the Christmas decor down yesterday - whew, what a job. By the time we took the tree down yesterday another whole section of lights had gone out and there were dozens of bulbs out. I decided that I couldn't be comfortable with those lights anymore so before we hauled it up to the attic we took all the lights off and I will have to either re-light it next year or get another tree. It took about 5 hours to get all those blasted lights off! Almost everything has been hauled back to the attic except for a dining room table full of misc. stuff that I need to find another box for. I still have to put all the everyday stuff back where it belongs. Before I get to that, I need to make a wally world trip. I should have done it yesterday, but I just couldn't make myself do it.
I hope everyone has a safe evening and a Happy New Year.

I'm in the market for a new camera too. My husband gave me money for Christmas, now I've gotta get out there and buy something. I'm like you and want a small one! I'll check out the one you bought since you already spent an hour deciding what to buy. :) Happy New Year

Love the coffee finish.

I have a Canon Digital Camera that is almost 4 years old. It is great, but like you it is a little bigger than I would like. Looks like you did good with your new one. Takes forever to figure out all the bells and whistles.

Happy Stitching New Year.

Hey Friend - peaking in here from work - as always, love your stitching stuff! I just got a new digital, 7 mexa pixels instead of the one I have now at 3.5. I am disappointed. I don't see a big difference in quality of pic, but the good thing is that I can take much closer up pics. Love your new banner! I am sorry about your headaches and that there doesn't seem to be much of an answer. Have you tried extensive food allergy testing? I'll be posting again soon! Happy New Year! Love, Esther said...

I LOVE my Elph, great camera,always good photos! I can keep it in my pocket everywhere I go. You'll like it.
