Finished up two little sweaters for my granddaughters today, which means that this project is half DONE. There are two more in progress for my grandsons. Now, back to knitting sleeves...

I always wanted a Vera scarf "back in the day" but they were out of my reach, price-wise. Today, thanks to Ellen of LA Is My Beat,, I learned that Target has a line of affordable repros! This one is mine...

I really loathe these hideous tropical tree-whatsits that my neighbor planted alongside the fence. I am inordinately happy when they get frostbitten. This year, they didn't get much--just enough to make them molt all over my driveway.

...in the air! It's my youngest granddaughter's third birthday! Going a "little" further back into history, 50 years ago today my sweetheart proposed to me. I said yes and that's what started this whole crazy, loving, silly, wonderful family!

Some nice old forks in my "silverware" drawer! Not sure if these are fish forks, or dessert forks, or just odd forks. Yes, they'd look better with some of that tarnish taken off. Any volunteers?

A Thirties Tumbler quilt in progress. This was a block of the month--each month I got a packet of pre-cut tumblers. After the first 6 months, I sewed them into rows; now I have the second 6 months' worth, ready to sew those into rows and finish assembling the quilt top.
It's going to be enormous so I'm not sure that I'll be wanting to quilt it myself. Have to wait and see once it's done!
A stopped clock is still right twice a day. It's also super easy to reset if you need a picture of a certain time and might have happened to nap through that time. This clock was Himself's anniversary gift from Gallo, I think for 25 years.

Made this little Valentine quilt umpteen years ago, but still pull it out every year. It's supposed to look like a folded love letter. Hand appliqued, with beads, ribbons, lace, and pen-and-ink "love notes."
