Lauren says: Ebay is a very addicting place! I have gotten some nice things from there, but it makes you want to go back all of the time :)
Eva says: Of course buy a new DC ! The replacement battery price is almost 20% to a new DC (with 5 million pixel !). If you buy a new one, at least you can use 3 years or more. Good pics are essential to a blog, right ?"
Right on! Good pictures are essential and it's even more so as I need it to show hubby's watch goods on eBay. And you gals want to see my stitches too right?
But uh...so you see, I haven't quite decided yet. This is the shot I got from my friend's Canon camera (it's a little blur; perhaps I was wobbly?) I probably need a tripod as well.
Can you gals leave me a comment to let me know what cameras you use? I am thinking perhaps when the next computer show comes around, I will go check out the deals.
For anyone who remembers, this is the top that I was making for my galfriend's one-year-old son. She wanted a garment that her son could grow into. But this thing grew into a monster that I could literally fit myself into!* (or was it me who didn't read the instructions carefully?) [Story of Snow White's seven dwarfs come into mind.]
Actually in this instance, I was grateful that I didn't start with the sleeves. I just crocheted the armholes to neaten it and it became my casual top. There are some short-rowing on the front so that the neckline isn't exactly gagging me whic is good. But I am not showing a closeup coz it looks holey where the wraps are.
It seems that Debbie Bliss also have the habit of designing toddler clothes that are 30 - 32 inch wide so that it's easier for them to put on or take off. Honestly...that's a little too much! Makes me feel like shopping at the toddlers' dept...just GIMME the largest size anytime!
*At the end of it, if you care to know, I made another baby size top by staying up through the nite to get it in time for little boy's birthday the next day. This time, I must have made the neckhole a tad too small. And no photos coz his mom stuffed the garment into one of the boxes as they are moving. tsk, tsk.
