Snow and Quilting – Can this day get any better?

The last weather report I’d heard said we might get some snow flurries Friday night into Saturday.  I thought, “Yay! I love to see any snow falling! Maybe we’ll get at least a dusting.”

Well, when this South Florida born and raised gal woke up this morning, and looked out the window, this is what I saw…

We had about 1  1/4 ” on the ground and it was still falling.  It’s a fluffy, damp snow that is sticking to everything.  Beautiful!

I wanted to run out and play in it, but was scheduled to work in town. Drat!

The drive down the mountain and in to work was breathtaking. I NEVER get tired of seeing the snow!

Around 11:00AM, some gap (mountain access) roads were closed, so I left work early to make it home before they were all closed.

This is the view from my front porch now.

We’ve got about 3 inches on the ground.

So, the blinds in my sewing room are pulled up and I’m working on some machine quilting. I can periodically gaze out the window at the glorious winter wonderland that is our little farm.

This is what I’m working on this snowy afternoon.

It’s a Christmas tree skirt for one of our daughters.

My stitches are getting more consistent. Yay!

Well, I’m going to get back to quilting. I want to take advantage of this unexpected afternoon off.

I hope you have a wonderful rest of the day!

      Thanks, Vickie!
      There is beauty in each season, but Winter is my favorite because of the possibility of snow!
