Latest Additions to the Family

This is my baby. Well, one of my babies. The baby I had before I had "the little one". She's a few years old now, has travelled with me throughout Japan, to Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and has helped me record the beginning of my little one's life. I love this baby to bits. The only problem with her is, well... um... she has a bit of a weight and size problem... she's not a just-throw-in-a-handbag-and-go type of gal.

So, she's had a new little one of her own. Adopted mind you, as she is of a different race. This one is lovely and light and thin, no problem squeezing her in a bag at all!

She fits perfectly in a little padded pouch I made for my ipod a while back.

The new baby got to go on her first outing today, to the Craft Expo. While I was too busy chatting with a dear friend as we went up and down the aisles to take many photos, I did test the baby out on this beautiful quilt by Margaret Tweedie.

Just look at that use of yo-yos (or "Suffolk Puffs"). The new baby did quite a good job at capturing them indoors without flash, don't you think?

I don't want my old baby to feel neglected of course, I still love her dearly. So she got a nose job, a new lens, a macro.

And with the new lens, I can get in nice and close and pick up all those little details in my pendants. This particular pendant is from my new range "Love Letters from Japan" and are now in store.

Watch this space for more out and about photos now that I have a more portable baby to throw in my bag.

Congratulations on the new baby - is it a boy or a girl? With a name like Canon Digital, I'm thinking maybe a boy.

lovely addition!

Congrats! I too have a heavy and not so portable baby and have been eyeing more portable ones... I'd love to replace my old cell phone with one with a good camera function, but am thinking I should just give in and buy a little digital camera instead!

Yes, I've got the previous Canon IXUS model to yours, and it's fantastic. It has a particularly good macro function. Have fun with it!

Jacinta said...

Oh congratulations!
I have a canon ixus and I take it everywhere.
Love it. It was a good choice and I think your older baby and the newest addition will play very happily together.

It is great to have a camera with you at all times --- you never know when you may want to snap something.

Now you have the perfect family! Enjoy!:)

Beautiful little addition to your family! I do love my little Konica but I long for a honking great DSLR too. I can dream a little longer!

Also that quilt? Absolutely beautiful!! I am on such a yo yo making jag at the moment, it's inspired me beyond words!
