new toy

My new toy has arrived. As usual I didn't read the instructions, I just put the battery and memory card in and started taking pics. My new toy is a Nikon D40 digital SLR, and I really do need to read the manual, but with such willing subjects, how could resist the urge to snap away?Have you spotted a theme here?
I do like the soft brushed cottons which I have used to make this little kitty (it's still unfinished btw - paws and tail need to be sewn on) but it is much more difficult to hand sew compared to my fabric of choice - felted jumpers.
I've also worked up some kitties in paper - they are awaiting backgrounds and eventually framing

Looks like you've got the hang of that new toy! Like the cat softie!

Kitty said...

Oh wow - can't wait to see more shots taken with that new toy. It sounds fabulous.

Cute cats - all of them! x

Heh heh, I like the paper kitty's Michael Jackson pose :-D

Have fun playing with your new toy- I've just got a DSLR and have been taking blurry, out-of-focus but arty photos of EVERTHING!

I love your kitty. I have been making a kitty softie this week too - must be something in the air. No pics yet though.
