We sewed . . . well mostly I sewed, but Princess did complete 2 running stitches. I learned the running stitch, back stitch and overhand stitch.
I started my first project, a pillow for Princess. Using a large bowl for the shape, I traced around it, then marked dots 3/8 of an inch (about 1 centimeter) outside the circle. I then attached the dots and used that for the cutting line and the inner line for the sewing line.
The pillow should be done by my next Project 2011 update. Then Princess wants a heart shaped pillow. After that, I plan to do a real project . . . a long sleeve nightgown for Princess.
We did our Slow Burn workout. They even have a Kids Slow Burn! Princess and I both did our workouts. It was challenging, but we both enjoyed it. The best part? It's a once a week workout. Just the right frequency for a 7 year old and for my lack of exercise desire. The results people have shared are amazing. I can't wait to see our results!
We spent time outside! It was just a couple evenings after getting home from Village Home, but still . . . we were outside. Our backyard counts as nature, right?
Looking at these photos, I see the delight in Princess' face and how much she loves being outdoors. I also see that she does the only child thing pretty darn well and really is happy.
As far as working on my photography/learning how to use my camera to its fullest. Well, I am taking a lot of pictures. A LOT . . . all the time playing with my camera. I am no longer afraid of adjusting the settings. I was nervous doing the photos in the dark. I played around a little and then did the incredibly brilliant act of turning the dial on top of the camera to the nighttime setting. Brilliant!
