Hi Everyone,

I'm back from Vacationing in AZ! We had wonderful weather, in the mid 80's and sunny everyday. I'll tell you, you just can't beat it! Long walks and sunshine daily does a body good!

Anyway, now hold on to your hats... As promised I finished my Cherrywood Quilt and gave it to the recipient over vacation, my father!! It was a 75th birthday present for him and he loved it. I had to finish binding over vacation, but it was completed only a few days in.

Here is a picture of the birthday boy with his quilt!

There are more pictures posted here if you are interested in seeing close ups! I quilted it with Cherrywoods new dyed to match variegated thread from YLI. It quilted like a dream.

Of course, while in AZ I visited some of my favorite quilt shops and assisted in keeping the economy going. I will post some pictures of my takes. Also, found some great shoes too! So stayed tuned for more later this week.

Happy Quilting!!
