O Christmas Tree!

Has anyone put their tree up yet? I know some folks (us included) like to decorate right after Thanksgiving...but this year will be a bit different since we are moving the DAY after Christmas! LOL Who planned that??? LOL

So rather than put up a big tree, Bill, who is an Electrical Engineer by trade and an avid DIY electronic hobbist, decided to buy a kit to BUILD us a little electronic Christmas tree, complete with blinky lights ;) It has 30 different light patterns controlled by a microprocessor..so if you have a home hobbist who likes to solder and does electronics, this might be a great gift for them! You can order a kit through Nuts And Volts magazine's website.

So check out Bill's little video clip and if you like his tree, drop him a line at thex@optonline.net.

What fun! Conni, it will become a family heirloom, just like your quilts.
