Today I started arranging the deck. This is what I LOVE to do. My containers are finally filling out, the deck has been stained and we brought the furniture out from the basement. I spent the morning positioning plants until I had everything in a position that was pleasing to me. I then pulled out my pillows and my old crazy quilt (which inspired the deck color scheme). I made this brightly-colored calico quilt when my son was a baby. He is now 27 years old. After I got everything done, I sat on the opposite bench and just spent a moment looking at the quilt and remembering him crawling around on it as infant. Such wonderful memories!
Unfortunately, I now have to get ready for work. We have a wedding today and I have to be there from 3 p.m. until about 7:00 p.m. I really would rather just be sitting on the deck enjoying this beautiful day.
Denim Wreath - OK, this is not quilting, but it is at least crafty. I also lost a good deal of finger skin on this project, so I am really feeling the need to show off...
