We Have A Winner...Another Year Older...

The last week has been a weird one.  We had a good old fashioned winter blizzard with freezing temperatures, lots of snow, school and road closures, and we were basically just snowed in.  Shoveling the snow was a ton of work, but honestly it was fun.  It reminded me of being a kid again snowed in on my grandma's farm.


We had to travel on Saturday for my son's basketball tournament.  The roads were less than great, and this is a major interstate.


But the snow was beautiful in places, and the blue sky for a background was amazing!


Sometimes we are moving so fast that we don't take the time to enjoy the beauty in nature. 


On Monday I celebrated my 45th birthday by sewing some UFO's...This month for the Schibble's Parade it is "your choice."  I thought I'd finish a few I've already started rather than start something new.  This is Bibelot.  When I got it out and started working on it I heard my son tell my husband that I got "that quilt" out again.  The first go around was less then fun, and this one was just about as frustrating as the first time, but I love it and can't wait to get it quilted.


The second one I finished piecing was Summer Day.  Whew...I'm looking forward to some summer days, warm weather and sunshine.  This one was just about complete and then I guess the deadline came and went and I missed it and moved on.  I'm so glad to see this one in one big piece too.

Love your snow pictures. Here in Michigan, we've had a great snowy winter. I don't understand all the complaining from people. It'll be raining and sloppy soon enough.
