I hurriedly took a shower tuesday, so I would not miss the arrival of the brown truck. And this time, we were not waiting for drums. Oh no, this time the delivery was for me. Hours went by and no brown truck. Finally, just past 5, Finn came running up to tell me the truck was here. Her maiden voyage from New York was finally over.
Though I waited so long for this day to come, I did not take any pictures immediately. I was kind of shell-shocked and overwhelmed by all the booklets and CDs my camera came with. John told me to ignore all that stuff, at least for now. I decided that I must first finish a little sewing project, before I got swept away by my new camera. My house was a mess of fabric and thread and I could not stand it much longer.
I finished my sewing project today and decided to take my camera for a spin. Here we go. I almost neglected to even blog about my new camera, but I thought it would seem odd if all of a sudden my pictures looked sort of different--I am still saving up for Photoshop.
*my sister Jessica ex-nayed my first two font options for SUPER HEROES and helped me select the one here.*
I was not planning on sewing Ollie another blanket, but I accidently stumbled upon this fabric on the world wide web and my heart skipped a beat. I had been looking for Aquaman fabric for a while and had pretty much given up hope that it even existed.
I was going to line the back in some heavenly mustard yellow fabric, but it seemed a little toasty for the Summer and Fall. So I lined it with the Super Hero fabric. Besides, I had been itching to use some of the other characters, but there just wasn't room enough on front.
Here's the smokin' Wonder Woman.
And I confess, I was unfamiliar with Marvin and Wendy, but instantly fell in love with Wendy's adorable blue hair and Marvin's funky orange pants. Apparently they were teenage sidekicks to the Super Friends.
And here's Marvin's pet, Wonderdog. Might be cute embroidered on a tee!
And what is that in your mouth Ollie? My lens cap? Oh no, no, Ollie, you can't have that. Give it back to mama.
Jeepers, from the look on his face, you'd think I stole candy from a baby!
