Finishes for December OPAM and a PhD

Sitting down to enjoy Carols in the Domain on TV I had no hand stitching to work on so what was I to do? Remembering I still had half the ball of red/silver wool left, I picked up the knitting needles once more and managed to knit 3/4 of the 2nd ruffle scarf. In no time the next day I had a 2nd Red Ruffle scarf fnished...perhaps a gift for someone in 2012.

Another UFO and PhD finished last night.  This quilt was a stack and slash I did at the end of 2006 so it's been a UFO for some time. Last month it became my first quilt on the frame and after some trials the quilting was completed. Monday I machined the binding and last night finished hand stitching the binding on the back and ta da! "Citrus Splash" is a UFO no more.

This one I can also mark off as one of my pledged PhD's. 4 down and 1 to go.

Wishing everyone a Happy, Healthy and Joyous Christmas.
