Christmas & Christening

so, for craft night we made cute little button tree pillows. very easy. just felt buttons and sewing. a blanket stitch for the edging..done! I think I will have to make a few for simple chistmas gifts.

My niece's baptisim is in a few weeks! being her god mother, I am making her a special little gift. a quilt. I love all the fabric I have picked out, some from my stash, and some that is new....I've decided against the bluish tartan, and am going to go ahead with some pinkish fabric that I have instead...

Candy Apples and Christmas

Ok, so I am behind.... this is what we did for Halloween... now I didn't actually make any, these are Laura's... they look so good. I can say that the caramel, and all the candy used was very very good! I made cookies, witches cookies with skor bits. de-lish!

I was out to see my beloved, was so good to just be near him, I miss him so much. we went to a wonderful little spot
on Vancouver Island, it was very hard to leave.

I've finally finished with Glen's cd. (I hope) there were some small changes that had to be done, but nothing major.

I am gearing up for Christmas, I've rinsed all my cookie cutters getting ready, and have re arranged my sewing area. I am serious about giving very few "store bought" gifts this year. It feels like I've remembered something important. I've been listening to Christmas music all day, and have even found a radio station that is playing it already!

Ok, loads of stuff going on right now....
first of all..Congratulations to Sonya and Steve, they have just announced their engagement...tentative date set for fall 2007! yay!

after many (MANY) hours...
I am finally (finally!) finished the
dvd of our trip to Ireland....
10 days of Ireland took (easily) 40 hours to make a 35 min dvd.... the only thing left is rendering it (in progress) then burning the dvds

I am just about finished up with Glen's piping CD...
just have a bit more to do to the artwork,
then I can courier it away to where they make the rest
of the magic happen....
since this is my first graphic design project, I can't
wait to see the final product!

now, I just have to get my wedding photo dvd going, and I will be all set!
