    Here are the latest quilts I finished on my second week of vacation. Since I don't get to sew all the time while working I really love being able to sew as much as I want on vacation. For me it is a favorite way of relaxing.
    The first week of vacation we drove to Spiro, Oklahoma to be with family. Beautiful county, I saw my first live cardinal, he was the most brilliant red, and he flew right into the tree in the back yard!

    Lovely quilts. Sounds like you're having a wonderful vacation. I guess since I live in the East I never really thought about people never seeing a cardinal before. We have them at our backyard feeders all the time, but I always love to see them. They are beautiful.

    beautiful quilts. it's nice to learn that someone else takes their machines and projects to vacation with them. he fishes and i quilt. he won't even see a fish or smell one if i go out with him. then i end up looking like a fried lobster for nothing.
    i'd be interested in knowing the pattern name for the second one- the quilt as you go one. if you can?
