Orange Wristlet

Don’t we all need a little more orange in our lives?  Especially in these more dreary, short-on-daylight days of winter?  I know I do, and apparently so does Megan, who will be receiving this wristlet in short order.  She is a known lover of orange, as evidenced by other things I’ve made for her, and I hope this one is just as well-received.

I took these pictures with a new camera lens I got for Christmas, care of the ever-thoughtful boy.  It’s a 50mm fixed lens that can let in a whole lot more light in a short amount of time, making it perfect for taking pictures indoors on winter weeknights when there’s nary a beam of sun to be found.  I’m not thrilled with all of my indoor results quite yet, though I’m still getting the hang of it.  There’ll be more experimenting in coming days, and I think pictures will get better as I learn.

Cross your fingers!

    Megan was indeed thrilled with this additional item you made for her. You are my go-to gal for Megan gifts. Now we have to figure out something you can make for me.

    Cute fabric! I love your wristlets!
    Last week I had to scramble home from work at lunch to get a photo of a bag I made in my Etsy shop, then rush back to work. All because it’s dark all the time out here on the coast. Your photos look GREAT!

    Love your site! I saw you on sew,mama,sew. Your pics look great and you’ll love that new lens. I’ve found that adusting my ISO makes so much difference on my indoor pictures with my 50mm.
