I apologize to my camera

It's not a crappy camera... it's a crappy user. As I was trying to take a picture this evening, I noticed the setting for taking pictures for a distance of less than 2 feet. DUH! so here are some more pictures to feast your eyes on!

More marble magnets:

The winter theme. There is also one of a dove flying on a winter night whose picture didn't come out as I'd like.

There are 5 of these that are exactly the same.. My intention is to match them to my mindset: either scattered or I'll have my 'ducks in a row' This picture doesn't do this magnet justice however!

The sports theme. We also have a soccer ball that I couldn't get the picture just right.

The bonbons seemed a bit camera shy as well.

And to give you an idea of how beautiful the ramboulette fleece is:
This was the most difficult to photograph because the camera wanted to focus on the background. I give thanks to DH's lazy boy and it's plain jane green upholstery.

Now that I have discovered how truly inept I am at taking pictures, and how to improve my close-up shots... expect to see more and better pictures. This discovery was very possibly the highlight of my day. I leave you with blurple and natural together. I must bathe my youngest. He's requesting it!

Figured I'd continue my comments here :-D. All the new pictures look great! I LOVE the new picture of the blurple. It's so much easiest to see the beautiful colors. And the marbles are really cool. I'm going to have to try that in the future for gifts. It's a great idea!!

The crimp on the fleece is amazing. I'm sure you're going to have fun spinning that one.

As for the school district, It's absurd that they made you go in! If our roads are anything like yours, they were just scarey to drive on.

Good luck chipping out today! Hopefully, unlike us, you got more snow than ice. Since you're further west, I'm guessing you probably got more snow. We got at least 2-3 inches of ice and I'm kind of dreading trying to work our way out.

cool!!! i love the magnets! great close-up of the snowflake one. I can make out the baseball one pretty well so it's not that bad of a shot. blurple is looking pretty too. :)

Your magnets came out great. Those sets make very nice and thoughtful gifts :)

As always I love to see what your doing in the spinning dept.

Happy knitting with all your newly spun yarn :)
