Walking in a Summer Wonderland

 'Tis the Christmas Season and coincidentally the first days of Summer in the Southern Hemisphere. Which is odd, considering all of the Christmas carols reference snow and figgy pudding and fireplaces and wonderlands and whatnot.
In the spirit of things, I made Christmas Tree garland, my first (successful) sewing machine project! Easy, take scraps of fabric and shape into whatever you choose, stuff shapes with other scraps of fabric and sew closed. assemble in some rough order that looks similar to a pattern and sew to a ribbon! voila!
Special thanks to my sister for being Skype-able to aid in my sewing machine functioning properly. (and thanks to whomever invented Skype while we're at it.) For being able to help me sort out my operator error with the bobbin and various other movable parts and knobs that attach to a sewing machine.

Here in this 26 second video is our Christmas Tree for 2012!

I ran a 1/2 Marathon this past weekend, well, it was more of a run/walk as i have been having miscellaneous foot pain for the last 3 weeks. At least it is over :)

Special thanks to Forrest for cheering me into the finish line, and taking this sweet pic. <3 p="p">
