Scattershot

I'd hoped to finish a UFO of long standing this week, but I couldn't because the zipper I ordered from New York didn't arrive until Saturday. Instead I made this.

Oops! You can't see it because of the ornaments. Here it is.

Lamb's Pride Bulky, less than one skein. Based on the directions here but I added additional ribbing and didn't do as many decreases. It's a little snug, I'd use size 11's next time.

On an historical note, we bid a fond but very long overdue farewell to the Jeep. The Jeep was my husband's "signature" ride for many years.

You always knew which one was his by the bumper sticker.

My contribution to the blogsphere in terms of Christmas crafting: a Lutradur tree. Cut two identical trees, slit one down the center from the bottom to about an inch or two from the top, slit the other from the top down (an inch if you used an inch on the other, two if you choose that), put together and voila. If you click on the photo you'll see it's nice and shiny and transparent.


Finally, Mr. Fox returned, and was just outside the window - a screened window. I Photoshopped the picture up so you could see him better.

And yes, I'm still paper piecing at a slow but steady rate. I hope it's worth it in the end.

I love the paper tree - what a simple and beautiful idea! Paper piecing quilts is fun and so easy - my preferred way to go!
