All Is Calm - 52 Photos Project

I'm dipping my toe into something new for me -
the 52 Photos Project.
Each week they have a new photo prompt &
I will attempt to take a new photo or find an older photo to post to go along with it.
This week's theme is
"All is calm".
I took this photo in November 2011,
when my sister Nancy & I went on a "photo drive" near her home northeast of Sacramento, CA.

My Wish-To-Do List!

Barbara, over at Cat Patches has thrown down a new challenge for next year!
Knowing, as she does, how quilters are, she's giving us permission to make MORE UFOs!  We just need to start a new project and then blog about it at the end of the month & link up to her linky party.  What could be better than that?  We don't even have to break any promises, because we don't have to promise to finish anything!!
She did ask us to post a wish-to-do list, so here's mine:
This is one that I do want to finish:
This is a quick draft of the pattern that I did in Excel, but you get the idea.
It's for my BIL, Walter & sister, Judy.
Other than this one, I'm not sure just what I want to START...but I do want to continue working on the quilt for my own bed.
   So that's my wish-to-do list.
What's yours?
And just because I can,
here's my new favorite Christmas song,
"The Christmas Can-Can",
by Straight No Chaser:
Happy Quilting!

The Final Foto Finish

They say that all good things must come to an end.
And now is the time for the
Barbara over at Cat Patches has been hosting this fun linky party for over two years, and now it is time to call it a day.
(but not without giving us some links to other photo link-ups!)
So, for our last Foto Finish we have 2,
yes, count 'em, TWO themes!
The first is
This feeder was hanging on my sister's front porch,
and this hummingbird was one of the 'regulars'.
(It's since been replaced by a diner with more seats)
Our second, bonus theme is
And, just because I can, my choice for my last
Foto Finish
combines both of the themes!
This was
"the end"
of a lovely & delicious dessert crepe
that I shared with my friend Marlene,
at Sunday's Old Town Bistro
in Monrovia, California.
Okay, Okay!
This is what it looked like before it was attacked.
I'm going to miss linking up to
Even though I didn't always link every week,
I did always look forward to it.
I checked back in my blog post list,
and realized I've been playing along for almost 2 years!
Thanks for all the fun Barbara!
