As I mentioned a couple of days ago, I got a new mp3 player for my birthday. I’ve been listening to the backlog of podcasts I’d built up (and there are a lot of them). Yesterday I got to episode 193 of Craftlit, in which Heather Ordover talks about the Tucson shooting (her son played little league with the 9 year old girl who was shot). Very touching, very upsetting stuff. I found it even more troubling, because my elder daughter touched base with her seasonal after school job this week, and learned that a co-worker died last week. It’s a small family business, and a very personal loss for everyone involved.
Still, this is my craft blog, and I’m not going to more than touch on the sad stuff. So here is something from playing with the other birthday gift I mentioned, my camera. You can see the tea cozy sticking in the foreground, and a bit of the teapot it is being made to fit. It seems to pick up and brighten colors, and I haven’t found any way to filter that. I think it’s time to break out the manual.
