SATISFYING DAY

The second QFK;s is off the frame and waiting for binding.  I will be going today for a bone scan and afterwards will pick up some fabric to bind this quilt and the last one....

so I can add them to the growing pile of finished quilts!

My old child's rocker is shiny and smooth again; 
 ready to go back into the kids room to wait for a visit.
I played a bit on the lathe today;  taking a small 9" chunk of oak and removing the bark and then smoothing the wood underneath.
And then the fun part begins;  the shaping of the wood. 
 I have it polished and waxed.  
Today, I will be drilling out the center for the glass vial 
so I can use it for a plant or flower!

    That chunk of wood is going to be beautiful when you're finished. The grain is so pretty.
    Blessings,

  3. Oak is one of my favorite hardwoods. I have quite a few pieces in my apartment and have refurnished quite a few pieces years ago.
