Wrapping it Up....

 The Jacob wool vest is near a wrap up-I am working up the back area,

I have several more little quilts awaiting their turn for loading!
I think I have put the last of the brush strokes on the class assignment.
I don't like still life but it is good for me to do more than I want;
I will begin the one in my mind's eye today, I hope!
