catching up::part I::mail

the few days before my mom arrived were a flurry of delightful mail. firstly my duaflex was delivered in perfect condition with it's wee add-on lens attachments and even a huge flash that attaches on the side. it's too cool for school but i discovered i need to build a contraption to block the light from reflecting off the viewfinder so that my photos come out clearer and blah de blah, blah - just haven't gotten around to it yet. still quite excited by the duaflex though... i'll get around to it next week, i'm sure.

i also received another great treat from ebay - a replacement raynox msn-200 macro lens for my old Nikon 995. long time readers may recall i retired my old camera with a little tribute last september and complained mightily that i'd lost my macro lens that took such great shots. i finally broke down and hunted for one on ebay, managing to win it (and ship it) for the tidy sum of about $30! sweeeet. and so my 995 comes out of retirement. i've only taken it out a few times since but expect many more images like this:
tiny grevillea
and this:
hibiscus
from now on.


and, saving the best for last, i also received a fabulous surprise parcel from belinda containing piece after piece of wonderful fabric just perfect for a new batch of oobees i've got brewing.

  6. Oh dear lord above--just surfing around when I saw my parents' sheets from the late 70s! (The bottom set) Who knew I should have hung onto those things? Enjoy making beautiful things out of them :)
