4 blocks done & 7 random things

I made a little ATC today to trade with Nadia Bekker from the Netherlands. Nadia found me here, & emailed to ask if I would trade with her. She says if anyone else out there would like to trade with her give them her email address, so give a shout if you'd like a trade.
Here is Warren's progress on the deck. He says 4 down & 12 to go. So in about 2 weeks I should be able to plunk a lawn chair out there without being in his way!
I worked on the Irish dance dress today too. I'll save that post for tomorrow.
Oh, & Vicki W tagged me for 7 random things about me...Gee thanks Vicki...hmm,...
1. I won an Abominable Mention in the 3rd World's Worst Quilt Contest, by entering my 1st quilt. Ami Simms nearly fell off her chair laughing when I showed it to her. Fortunately I'd already improved quite a bit by that time, & realized it was really baaaad!
2. To counter balance #1, I'll tell you I've won a Best of Show in the international Feel Free Contest, sponsored by Husqvarna Viking in 2002.
3.I was a synchronized swimmer in high school. It's the only sport I was ever any good at. I'm a major klutz, my DH says I trip over color changes in the carpet, but I'm graceful in the water.
4. I had a woman tell me I was a Dali lama in a past life.Ha!
5. I love my vegetables so much, when I was a kid, my mom would cook 1 head of cauliflower for me, & 1 for the rest of the family, & I don't eat beef, or pork.
6.I am afraid of spiders.
7. I believe in Aliens, & I think Criss Angel has to be one!
I'm going to say if you'd like to play along with this feel free. I don't know who'd like to be tagged, so if you would, then do it!

LOL, trips over color changes in the carpet, that's a good one! Warren sounds like a clever one! Definitely with that Log Cabin deck, I'm blown away!

I love the postcard and your decking is wonderful. What a great design.

beautiful atc and that deck is going to be gorgeous!

Vicki W said...

Thanks for playing along! I love your new deck - can't wait to see it done!

I also laughed over tripping on color changes in the carpet. That could describe me also, but I can't even claim grace in the water. Maybe you were a dolphin in a former life. I didn't know about the HV prize. Congratulations!!! That's a beautiful quilt, and their contest always has wonderful work, so it's a real honor.

Your deck is going to be absolutely gorgeous. I'm going to have to show this to my husband....

Tripping over color changes....oooo....sounds familiar.....LOL.........

That deck is going to be so special! Don't suppose Warren would care to visit Colorado and do one like that for us? Ho Ho.
I'd never heard of Chris Angel and now I'm mystified and intrigued.

What a fabulous deck!!

MJAPA said...

Your house is going to look like it is wearing a big quilt! How perfect! I love it!

ooh ooh....new pics of the dress? :-)
The deck looks great...really great.
After watching Chriss Angel...he most certainly is an alien.

Dali Lama? should I address you as "your holiness" or something?

Sue said...

That deck is incredible!! We're actually about ready to build a deck off the back of our new addition, but putting a new faucet in last weekend required three trips to Home Depot, so I don't dare ask him to attempt a work of art like that!
*and Criss Angel freaks me out!

I'm a little behind in my blog reading, but that deck is too marvelous for words, as the song says. Really, Deb, it's wonderful. And Warren is a good sport to make it for you (I assume it was your inspiration?).
