iPad case

 In one of our lengthy meetings last week, I spent the time searching for fabric online.  I wanted to try this iPad case tutorial that I found on Pinterest.  I finally found this fabric (Peacock Lane by Violet Craft for Michael Miller Fabrics) on sale and ordered it.  It came on Friday and I spent last night putting the case together.

my first time sewing a zipper - not too hard, but I think my zipper foot is too fat!
 lined pocket - for the cord, maybe

far from perfect, but fun to have completed a project with my new sewing machine

Andy and Bekki asked me to take some pictures of their family of three (before baby girl makes 4 in March) to put in Christmas cards.  Bekki said they didn't have a picture of the three of them since Dec. 2009.  We went in the fields in front of and beside their house.  After almost getting peed on by a dog (not theirs) right at the beginning, things got a little better.  The wind was 15-20 mph with gusts beyond that.  Made for an interesting time.

 Graycie wearing the scarf now. Couldn't get the crazy dog to cooperate.  If you know anything about Weimeraners, they're loyal to approximately one person (Andy), and don't care anything about anyone else.

 This picture and the next were taken in shadows from a row of pine trees along the road.

I don't love the direct sun lighting, but oh well.  It's not as bad as full sun can be...

reindeer games

 A tradition was started long before I moved here of the staff kids taking candy to the dorm kids around Halloween time.  We're up to a pretty sizable group.  These are all of the elementary-age and younger kids, minus Milo Baughman.

 Ryan hauled Claire around in her reindeer outfit.  Jaclyn got it for her on clearance after last Christmas, thinking that it would fit her this Christmas.  Since she's such a chunk, there's no hope of that happening, so it became a good costume to wear this time of year.
