For Grady, Baby

Here is the latest quilt for my friend's new baby whose name is Grady. I really love that name! Anyway this is just another version of my favorite baby blanket pattern. Click to see the pics bigger.
Here is the back, it's flannel and I pieced the back together along with a cute little square to make the back big enough. Once again it's so nice to be able to give a gift like this to show my love to the recipients. It also perfectly matches his bedroom, which I had no idea!
This week has been rainy and cold. We have still been able to pick blackberries in the morning and the evening and the boys are raking in the cash. It's so good for them to have the resposibility to their customers, so they pick each day to fill the orders that are coming in. Clancy is saving for the family computer and Clayton is stashing his cash for remote control accessories.
Today was the last day of volleyball camp at the school. It was great to see girls who did o.k. last year show up and do great! It's fun to see them mature and figure out how to make their long arms and legs work right. This has made me excited for the season to start which will be in just a couple of weeks!
Summer is winding down fast. The boys are restless and it's all I can do to keep them distracted. I can't say that I'm ready for school to start, though! Cheers!
