Well I decided on the camera and appreciated all the info I have recieved about what to buy. I have chosen a Nikon. Here is a pic I grabbed from Amazon to show you. Here is some info about it...
Style meets simplicity. 5x wide angle zoom in a super slim body.
Nikon’s stylish and simple Coolpix S570 combines 12.0 effective megapixels with a 5x optical Wide Angle Zoom-Nikkor glass lens for stunning prints as large as 16x20 inches. The sleek, all-metal design makes it easy to carry, and the incredible, bright 2.7-inch LCD makes it easy to compose and share pictures. The Coolpix S570, with Nikon’s 4 Way VR Image Stabilization, combines four technologies that get you sharp, crisp pictures. The Coolpix S570 features Nikon’s Smart Portrait System that finds faces, removes red-eye, softens fine skin lines, fires the shutter when your subject smiles and warns you if they blink.
A smart, flat design equipped with advanced functions for capturing precious moments with simplicity and style
The Coolpix S570 features a 5x zoom Nikkor lens with 28mm wide-angle coverage and the performance benefits of Nikon's innovative EXPEED digital image-processing concept. With 12.0 effective megapixels of sharp resolution and a flat body that fits right in your pocket, the Coolpix S570 offers carefree and flexible shooting.
The Coolpix S570 is equipped with Nikon's Smart Portrait System, a series of advanced functions that help produce consistently great portraits. The new Skin Softening function automatically detects and analyzes the subject's skin and then adjusts smoothness for enhanced results. Face-priority AF automatically detects as many as 12 faces in the shot and helps produce satisfying portraits by adjusting focus and exposure. Smile Timer automatically releases the shutter when the priority subject smiles while the Blink Proof function automatically shoots two sequential frames and saves the one in which the subject’s eyes are wide open. In-Camera Red-Eye Fix automatically corrects any perceived red-eye effect before saving the image to memory.
The Coolpix S570's high sensitivity of up to ISO 3200 at any image size up to its maximum of 4000 x 3000 pixels enables flexibility when shooting in low light or when capturing fast-moving subjects. This creates new opportunities to take sharper, more natural-looking photos the moment they occur.
I hate this but still no camera! It would cost too much to repair my camera so I am on the hunt for a new one! Question, what camera do you have? And what do you like about it? I will be buying one this week. There is just so many to choose from!!

I have decided to do this challenge because of all the WIPs/UFOs I have and it is helping me! We need to put 100 stitches in per day for the month of May. I am behind because I started late. Past two nights I have stitched over 100 stitches to help get up to the 800 stitches as of the 8th. I love this challenge! It is a real push for me to get these WIPs done ; )
Here is last week
This is as of today
