Did I post pictures of the Deck Extravaganza that happened at Toby and Tammy’s house the last week in June? When we arrived on Wednesday afternoon the back yard looked something like this –
By Monday afternoon, it looked like this –
deck 46
and this –
deck 45
Pretty sweet, eh? And they even had help!

On other project notes –
I did complete little Maddie’s crib quilt –

Since I started this after she was born I was able to actually make it a little “girly” (i.e. it has pink in it!).

Remember the Pottery Barn-type quilts I made for Ellie and Hayley? I thought you might like to see them in action –

And one last little wallhanging that I finally finished (I started it when I was last in Arkansas, April 2005!). It’s only about 13″ square but it works nicely with my small spaces!

That’s it for now. I’m hoping to start my Christmas presents this week, but don’t tell anyone, OK?

  1. Your granddaughter quilts look wonderful. And I love your little finally finished piece. You got brave to do your machine quilting in contrasting thread so the back looks fabulous too. Good Job!

  2. I miss my quilting. You’ve done a lovely job on all the quilts. I love the patterns and colors chosen. You guys are an inspiration. Thanks for sharing.

  3. wow, the deck looks fab!
