In which I put my new camera to work.

I have a lot to learn in the world of aperture, shutter speed and all of that, so for now I am using easy modes.

BUT now that I have a decent camera, I want to share the dress I made before our trip to Europe to wear while I was there. It is based on this pattern, which I shared a few weeks ago. It is marvelously simple as there are no closures. Sure, a zipper only costs a few dollars, but I never have them on hand. 
Note to self: Iron backdrop.

As a side note, I got this fabric for 1.50 a yard, so it was pretty cheap to make.

I love love love the floral print. The fabric is also very soft. It worked great in cold weather with thick tights, a cardigan and boots.

In case you forgot, you can get it here.

Hooray for my new DSLR!

I wanted to share a photo comparison of my two cameras. I can't believe how much of a difference there is between them. Well, I guess that is kind of a 'duh' statement, but I really do find it quite amazing. I've been taking quite a few comparison pictures and basking in the glory of the wonder that is a DSLR.

Isn't the difference crazy?

Some sales

While I am beating my brain over and over trying to decide over what play kitchen to buy/make for Katherine and Daniel, you can look at these Cyber Monday sales.

One of my favorite stores- Modcloth is having a 20% off sale.


Shabby Apple is having a site-wide sale of 20% off with the code: JOYFULSEASON.

Dresses from Shabby Apple

And the question is, have I been sewing and not posting pictures? Yes. This will end. I just got an SLR Canon Rebel on a huge sale- it will be arriving this week- happy dance.

I've been holding out on you all.

Ghent, Belgium

We are in Europe! Matt's sister lives there, so we are visiting her family. It has been splendid. We've been here for a few days and will be for a few more. We went to Brussels today.

...And tomorrow we are going to Paris.
