For a good chunk of the winter Al was in his workshop, hacking away at chunks of wine crates that accumulated through the years. Every time I went nearby he told me to stop bugging him. Well, okay then. Look at what he did, just look and marvel. Now we have a door to close the laundry room/pantry from the kitchen. You're jealous, I know you are. There isn't room for a swinging door and a pocket door would be way too much work so this is on a sliding barn door system, clever hidden behind the sign. He's a genius. Most of the time.
The stained glass is from the restaurant in Napa and the sign from the joint in Petaluma. Never throw anything away. Notice the lefse sticks under the rolling pins? Maybe it's time to put them to good use. Is there a rule about only making lefse for the holidays? Easter is a holiday.
Wanna see my other finally finished needlepoint? Of course you do.
These guys have been in the Unifinished Object (UFO) box for so long that they went
on the road with us, traveled around the US and waited patiently to become
something more than a flat piece of painted canvas and a pile of threads.
