I cut a chunk of grapefruit log in half to make a square bowl for my oldest son.

This guy left a lot of trails!  I can work with the holes but not with him!

He was dead already, so it was just a matter of picking him out!

I like the way the wood has spalting lines throughout the grain;  lots of interest.

I think he will enjoy putting wallet and coins in this each night!  6" x 6" x 3" 

The quilt was washed and dried-

full of lovely wrinkles and squishiness!

I made another row for my bed quilt and added a few stars.  I feel a bit better each day-it was nice to be able to be upright for a lot longer yesterday!  I'm looking forward to a bit more work on the FL panel quilt-those stars are fun to make!  Oh, and I have some plying to do so I have that second skein of TDF yarn for this year! 



  1. You find the most spectacular wood! My grandparents used to visit Florida quite often and your quilt reminds me of the souvenirs they used to bring back. I used to love the basket of oranges they would bring us. It's how I learned to

  2. Ooooh! That grapefruit wood is wonderful. I'm sure he will enjoy using it every day. I love both quilts very much. The Florida one looks like "Florida". Does that make sense.
    But the best news in this post was that you're feeling better. I'm so glad to hear that. I've been praying for you.
    Blessings & love,

  3. Okay. Gotta ask. What WAS that in the grapefruit wood?

    The quilt is coming along beautifully!

    Glad to hear you are feeling better.
