Winter's Arrival

The first snowblowers of the season were heard Saturday morning.
Vintage Stitchers met on Thursday at Diane's. Carol brought her Kaffe Fassett quilt, ready for border:
Carol make the blocks for this quilt some time ago, a BOM, but she didn't like that the blocks were so plain, so she jazzed them up.
On the back, the quilter used dark thread in the sashing and borders.
Rebecca had made this embroidered pillow:
...and this red work quilt top.
Brenda had two quilt tops finished. First, this one:
...and then if you can't sleep at night, you can read your quilt.
Barbara bought this Christmas quilt kit at a Whimsy Cottage quilt shop long ago when it was in Heber City.
I can't show you my knitting/crocheting project, because it's a secret, but here's an example of a previous project, also counting as this week's cuteness: Johan wearing the owl hat I made for his brother more than two years ago:
Here's the link to Ravelry page for the project.
What's on my needles: The Johan socks and Mr. F's clothes, plus a small project I can't show you yet. Still hand-quilting my Spring Flowers quilt, working on the second of four appliqué blocks.
What's on my Featherweight: Silently waiting for the next sewing project.
What's on my iPad/iPhone: The Line by J. Horn from Audible. Still reading Sherwood Smith's Crown Duel, from Book Bub.
What's my app of the week: KSL Weather, for up-to-date weather anywhere there's a weather station.
What's in my wine glass: The big box, Block Red Shiraz. It says, "Bottled April 29, 2014, so it's really fresh! Actually, it's pretty good.
What's my tip of the week: If you want to know if you have enough yarn to make another of the same project you've just made from the same yarn, weigh the finished project and then weight the leftover yarn. If your yarn weighs as much or more than your project, you will have enough.
