It's nip and tuck as to whether I will get this done in time! I'm more than half-way done with less than a week to go. When the pieces are connected I will still have to edge it and embroider on the names. Not to mention weave in the ends! Yikes!
Here is the current state of the quilt! I've outlined the parts that are joined in green.

This won't be much of a blog - just a few images to indicate the state of the garden. First however I want you to see why I can not ever get anything accomplished! This is the table where I try to work.
He knows how to be sure to keep me from accessing my books, my knitting and the television remote!
The "front yard" has a red and white garden (which has been invaded by orange flowers.) It has been blooming beautifully over the last few weeks!
There are some very large stunningly beautiful orange lilies that I will probably never move out of the garden because they do so well there (and the deer are too shy to bother them there.)
There are daylilies and daisies interspersed with the actual lilies.
This garden, based on a garden I saw in a magazine, has never satisfied me. It got overgrown, so I weeded it and transplanted some of the pinks that had become overgrown with grass so that they are more central in the garden, but it still doesn't look so good to me. Maybe it will grow into a better looking garden with a little time (?)
Finally the shot of the day is this little face off between a grosbeak and a woodpecker. At least they got there before the squirrels did!

First a garden picture of course!
And here is the deck!
First I have to put up a picture of my daylilies. I hope to have more pictures later, but they are blooming so nicely that I just want to put up a photo!
One of the squares was badly joined and I decided I would have to cut off the poorly joined part, but I'm lazy and I took aclass in steeking, so I think I will try and steek my work into the blanket. I'm not sure if it will work, but we'll see. I wonder if I can steek this (THe cutting has already occured!)
