Finally a picture of the Christmas Tree

Okay it's taken long enough, but today I figured it out and got the picture from the disk to the HP image zone. Still somewhat baffled by the computer, but I'm learning more and more each day. I spent some time today listing more items on my Etsy store so feel free to visit.

The Christmas tree was a Canaan fir and smelled just wonderful. It lasted a month and brought great pleasure to us during the holiday and into the new year. I finally got to display all of the homemade fabric ornaments I had been working on and included mostly Santa ornaments to go along with them. I hope you enjoy seeing it. It's a memory that will last forever.

Fabric Origami Christmas

It was decided to have a real Christmas tree this year and I chose to adorn it with mostly home made fabric Christmas ornaments. I did some fabric origami, folded fabric quilting, and used odds and ends of things given to create a beautiful tree. We got a Canaan Fir and the aroma was wonderful. We combined the ornaments with simple white lights and we enjoyed it's company for a month. Just some simple scraps and a little bit of time can make anything into something.

I also made new Christmas stockings and decorated them with fabric origami. If you ever need something fun to do try this method of fabric folding. It was relaxing for me.

Jr. Chef

Look at our new Jr. Chef. At age seven Josh is discovering cooking. What would any seven year old do without an apron, oven mitts and a chef's hat. I think the transformer pattern worked because Josh was ready willing and able to eat brownies, cookies and Christmas ham. Sewing is so much fun and the gifts are so much more personal.
