Last UFO finish of 2011

I finished my last UFO for my 2011 list.

This is a dresden plate quilt I found at a yard sale many years ago.
The original maker had pieced all the plates
and appliqued one of the 20 blocks.
I finished the applique by hand,
sent it to my wonderful quilter,
and finished off the binding by hand.

I finished 6 of my 12 listed UFO's this year.
I hope I do better with my 2012 list!

Early Christmas present!

My husband is a great woodworker.
He has made many of our home furniture pieces.
This year he surprised me with a early gift.

He made me a beautiful bowl.

Here is it still on the stand drying.

The woods are Walnut, Hickory, Alder and Brazilian Cherry.

I love it!

BBQ versus my VW Bug!

We have terrible winds whipping thru North Utah.

I was happily sewing, when I heard a crash.
It felt like the whole house shook.

Looked out window and saw...

My backyard fence laying in the neighbors yard!

then, I went to check for damage at the front of the house.

That is a BBQ sitting on the front of my VW Bug.
BBQ versus VW...BBQ wins!

I am going back to the sewing room.
Please let me know when the storm is over!
