All is Well With My Soul

We are in Michigan for a brief time, and are spending two restful days at the cabin.  While traveling, I like to embroider or knit.  This trip, I am working on redwork squares.  I finished a dog square, and added a dog tag with our beloved Sally's name.

Next, I started working on two barred owls.  They are almost finished, and I will have to prep something else to embroider on the trip back home.
Here is a picture of my squares so far.  Please excuse the wrinkles, but I haven't pressed them yet.  
While in the cabin, I played around last night using some red fabrics, making some small flags.
They are 2.5 x 3.5 in their unfinished state.  The reds are from a bag of scraps that were in my Mom's stash, and are probably from the 60s or 70s.  I hope you are having some fun in your sewing room this week.  I am looking forward to being back in Virginia next week to work on my project of reproducing an old doll quilt

Lovely red embroideries, Judy. And the flags are cute... I love anything patriotic!

Those are some pretty detailed embroidery blocks!
I, too, love all things patriotic--great little flags!

I just love those little flags. Your embroidery blocks are just beautiful, too. Glad you are resting and relaxing for a couple of days. Have a great time!
