On Sunday we had a snow storm that left behind about 10" of the white fluffy stuff. It's not unusual for us to get snow, it IS unusual for this area to have the snow last longer than one day. After snow comes rain and with rain comes yucky slushy snow. I'm not complaining, I like to see the snow on the ground when it's dry and fluffy. Monday was sunny and the roads were clear, so I didn't have a problem driving to the quilt store. Another snow storm on it's way for Tue, so this is what we woke to, another 10" of snow today. It snowed most of the day, so I got busy with quilting.
Doesn't the fountain look like a big fluffy cake on a stand. See how deep the snow is under the fountain.
The quilt shop visit gave me the inspiration to make this small quilt by Lori Smith. So today while watching the snow falling I put together 54 itsy bitsy flying geese and finished a flimsy. The finished size is 19x14 and I think I'll put a brown binding on this one.
Close up of the flying geese, these are 1"x2" finished.
While we visited this quilt shop the owner told us about the birthday month offer. All that's needed is to tell them your birthday month and and book a date for a party shopping spree. Bring 3 friends and the birthday girl gets 25% off (Yippee, Woohoo!) and her friends get 15% off. Since my birthday is next week (Thurs), I've book Monday for me and 3 friends to go shopping. The shop provides some treats for the party goers as well. I can't wait....we are going to have so much fun SHOPPING.
