Life has definitely taken me to places I never thought I would go to....but nothing more exciting than where I am right now! Welcome to my world...

Construction... has begun... and finished. And floating bubbles too!!!











We have been planning on building a deck for many months...in fact since we bought the house we live in. Please note, we didn't paint the addition on the house blue, I would have chosen a more neutral color..but it is what it is...and I sure don't want to repaint if I can help it. Anyways, this past weekend... DD and her dear hubby came to assist, between the expertise and the brute force... we have a new deck. And although it didn't quite get finished while all the strong help was here, Bob and I managed to put the last 2/3 of the decking on and do we love it. Have to admit, it seriously cut into my time, but I did get to chase the wee one around... shame, I was so busy, forgot to take even one photo of the gang. But did get a " I am just going to sit here and have a cold drink " when we finished the decking. Since this was taken the PRofessor has added another built on bench along the back of the deck. I did splurge and buy some plants for pots to set out and we will break it in officially this weekend, when the gradutate students and several professors are invited over for the end of semester party. I can hardly believe that the Professor has completed his first year of classes.... so we figure he has just about earned the "P" of the PHD program.
Woohoo!!!!
And I am finally showing the Designer, DD in laws finished quilt, Floating bubbles, hanging in the quilt shop. It should have more circles or bubbles, but I lost a few...then forgot to cut a few more... and I liked it anyway! Just the way it was! I am also posting a few of the quilts from our last guild meeting. I do love these also. The string
quilt is too pretty. And the Christmas quilt is also lovely. I had to share this quilt ...the brilliant one, that came with a traveling trunk show...to a Bernina school house show.... at a quilt shop up in Tupelo I was able to attend last week. What a pleasure to see some really cool quilting. I am going to try some of these on a quilt I am working on this week. Just loaded it this afternoon. Our quilt guild is bringing in a quilt teacher to teach some kind of jelly roll bargello class this weekend. I will so get some pictures. It is my mothers day gift! I have never tried one before, and can't wait to try. Thanks for stopping by.

I am just about to embark on a new deck at the back of our house. Ours will be undercover ready for my daughters 18th. You will have plenty of time out there in the summer.
