Quilting on vacation

We found it funny that as we walked into the quilt shop in one of the small towns we've vacationed in this summer that we were not only not greeted, but we were completely ignored. The irony of the fact was that I brought quilts to sew (not just one, but two) on vacation... Apparently, I don't look the part of a quilt shop shopper. ;)
One is now finished and the kiddos have turned it over and made it into a neighborhood for their cars, complete with pine cone trees.

The other is getting its quilting completed... An easy project with minimal thinking and much relaxing.

We are currently on vacation in the mountains... (Big Bear Lake) at the lovely vacation house of some generous friends. On a jaunt into town yesterday, I went into a little gallery of handmade art - and fell in love with the mixed media paintings by A. Breunig. The symbols and imagery are ones I constantly fall back on in my work... Trees, roots, words, houses... I especially love the "home" one.
