I've finally done it

I'm teaching my self how to SEW!

This has been something that I've wanted to learn for some time now. Now I have yet to find a really good basic sewing book to guide me I'm learning by trying.

Well after shopping at Hobby lobby for valentine stuff I took a peek what they had for fabric and found this cute fabric. LOVE LOVE the colors. Anyone who knows me I love natural colors with a splash of bright stand out colors. I'm the girl who had the Bright Pink wedding cake with black polkadots.

Well, Back to my 1st sewing adventure. I made my camera strap a cute cover.
I did find out that I need to do some more investing in some of those sewing guides so that I can cut a straight line. I didn't do too bad and how the cover was made you can't tell but i can easily solve the issue.

I'm linking up with a fellow blogger who is also wanting to learn her camera so that we can take the photo's that we see and share them with you.

finding serendipity

I am new to taking the time to learn the camera so please bare with me. I was using just a simple point and shoot for the longest time. just felt intimated with learning all the settings of our canon...this year I am going to start the journey of learning how to capture the moment :o)

My photo's where taken on an over cast day in central Florida. The first photo is of a Hibiscus in a pretty shade of pink.

The 2ND photo is of a shrub that attracts lots of butterflies.

Both taken on Manual 50mm at ISO 200 no flash
