Back to a routine

The holidays are over with and we are all getting back to a routine... work, reminiscing and play....

I finished my Christmas book...(I limit my reading to just before I turn the light off at night otherwise I can get lost in a book and not want to put it down.) This is a great way for me to unwind.

The decorations are all down and now it is time to bring in the winter décor...

" Lost Mittens" by Timbleberries replaces the Christmas quilt in the hall.

And the snowman replace the Poinsettias...

on my hall bench.. on the panels, I painted scenes for the different seasons. The (Cherry Bar Table runner is a pattern from Moda Bake Shop and it fits perfectly on the seat.. (My SIL makes custom-made furniture)

Now the next project I have to commit to...

I finally decided on the pattern for the quilt I am going to make for the church fundraising.
It is called "Apple Crisp" but I think it has to do with the colors it is made in.. Taken from the Better Homes and Garden American Patchwork Quilting, magazine October 2010.

I am choosing Astor Manor and some Martinique so maybe I better call it

"Peach Crisp"

And my second finish of 2011

Synchronized Spinning...

Another one to put on the pile for Agnes to quilt...
