Taking a Break for Bling

Ok, not "bling" exactly. I don't think Mary gave birth in a stable all glitzed out. But I also don't think she was legless and cone-shaped and stuffed with poly-fil. What I'm trying to say is she needs some trim. Problem is, I don't have any.

I see a trip to Jo-Ann in my near future.

I've also got a quirky and fun idea for decorating a mini tree. If I'm able to scrounge the supplies together on my little outing tomorrow, I'll share the results with you.

It is not necessary (nor is it actually called for) with this pattern to do it all via hand-sewing, but that is what I'm doing. Don't ask me why. I have an awesome machine that would be making this nativity look a lot more polished if I was actually using it (not to mention it would be coming together MUCH more quickly). It's fun to try different things once in awhile though. . . and sitting on the couch sewing little nativity stuffies while watching Arrested Development DVDs is quite a nice way to spend an evening. And festive. Because what says Christmas more than "Hot Ham Water"?

She ain't called Queen of the Universe for nothin! That's right, give our Lady some gold thread or some sort of embellishment, LOL

Thanks for the encouragement. She got some sequins over her hairline last night.
