Disney Princess Half Marathon 2013

Yes I did it, I am officially registered for the princess half marathon. 

Step 1: get off my lazy derriere and jog more.  I admit I am doing around 2 miles at time right now so I really need to step it up.  Lets see if I can do at least 3-5 this weekend.  I did a half in 2011 and one in 2010 so I know I can do it, just need to stop being lazy.

Step 2: get my outfit, I still plan to be Maleficent so black and purple are the way to go.  Should be able to find some ideas around Halloween.

Step 3: Enjoy Disney and all the fun people, whee.

Karate Pisces aka Fish of Fury

While wandering through Barnes & Noble came across a felt zodiac book, Zodiac Felties.  It had some really cute ideas so today I did the pisces one.  My friends who were shopping with me that day happen to be pisces and are some of my karate buds.  So I decided to make some "Fish of Fury"
As with all projects the first thing you do is move the cat out of the work space.  I copied the fish page and cut out my patterns in black and white instead of the recommended liliac and tangerine.  My fish are fighting, not fruity.  Originally I was going to use some leaf sequins that I had on hand but that didn't look to good so I went with black netting.
Mine don't look quite as good as the illustration but they are a nice group of fighting fish, fishermen beware.  I would recommend if you have the paperbck version to blow up the pattern a bit, these ended up a bit small.
Overall a cute book with a nice take on the zodiacs.
