Happy Snowy Monday

The calendar says that it's Spring, but I wonder--is it really???
This is what I woke up to this morning...


........nearly 3.5" of new snow.........

that grass was green when I went to bed last night;(

No wonder Spring seems to be much shorter than Winter and Summer. It's cheated out by late snows and early hot spells.

I have so many projects in the works right now that I need to focus on just a few...

so I chose this quilt ...


I made this one about 3 years ago. It was a BOM that one of the local quilt shops was doing when I first moved here. I made a couple of changes to the original that the shop was doing and then took it to a local longarm quilter, Laura Erickson, to do the quilting. All I need to do is the binding so this is what I will be working on over the next few days.

I think I'll take it to work with me tonight (doing the night shift) and if I have any down time I will work on it. Ahhhhh, but it's Monday and Mondays are usually busy. Maybe by the time I get there things will have slowed down. Yeah, right I have my doubts about that. Oh well, at least I have a job...in fact I have two, so I'm not going to complain, except that with two jobs there's not enough time to sew;(

I hope you all have a great Monday;)

haha I got a huge kick out of you measuring snow with your quilting ruler. I love that. A girl has lots of uses for her tools.

Is that why we don't remember spring so many years?
