Here is the male cardinal feeding a baby.
The baby below is getting up courage to leave the nest. Male and female are flying around him chirping (encouraging him).

Voyager of the Seas Cruise Ship

The midnight buffet.

Our Ship -- Voyager of the Seas


This cardinal built her nest in the ficus on our back porch. this picture was taken through the window. She now has three little babies. Last year she raised three in this same tree (different nest).

Emily's Week in Leona, Summer 2007

She loved the bubble bath in the jet tub, picnicing with Grandma in the "little forrest" and driving the mule, although the sun was in her eye. Since my hip replacement, I can't get on the ground with her but Grandpa did. We had a great week.

Block of Month for Wacky Pak

This is a Texas Wildflower block that I made for Rhonda. Her quilt theme was Texas. There is Thistle, Indian Paintbrush, Bluebonnets, Lazy Susan's and Primroses. It is machine appliqued. Can't wait to see the quilt put together.

This is Kathleen's block. Her theme was Lighthouses. I paper pieced this block and let me tell you, there are some very small strips in here. It enjoyed making it -- it was a challenge for me.

I've got another Texas to finish for Annale and a Texas Christmas for Kay. Plus another Texas block for Relay for Life for next year.


Yea!! We're going on a cruise -- The Wacky Pak. There are 8 of us going on a seven day, Western Carribbean cruise. A quilting cruise. We are going to take some quilting classes and sew on board as well as all the other activities and ports. My passport is expired so gotta take care of that next week. I know about the delay in obtaining passports but we've got until February so shouldn't be a problem.
Also going to Denver in August to visit my friend Marian. Marilyn, B.J. and I are going to play bridge as well as tour Marian and Jud's mountain home.
I am excited about both trips.
