You Just Need to Ask

I hope everyone has been staying warm and safe this holiday season. Here in the Pacific NW, we had a typical wet and green Christmas. I love the snow, though. Maybe because I have a Subaru with studded tires, or maybe because it just looks magical.
As I was visiting a few blogs, I popped over to Victoria's to catch up on things. I knew she lived in NYC, experiencing the terrible storms. I asked her to send some snow my way. This is what I woke up to today.

 Pure beauty.  There was just enough snow to dust the trees and make everything all clean and bright, but not so much that we couldn't get around.  And typical for our area, it was all melted away by noon and the sun came out for a minute.
 The only down side to the snow was that my landscapers have been busy in my back yard.  Since it's dark when I get home from work, I had to wait until the morning to see what they had done. Hmmm, everything was covered with snow, so the only thing I know for sure is that my garden boxes are nice and full of dirt, ready for planting this spring. I'll have to wait until tomorrow to see the transformation of my garden.

I don't have much to show with my quilting projects as I'm working away on block 6 of Beyond the Cherry Tree.  Everything is prepped and I'm still quite a few stitches away from having this block finished. I'm also making lists. Projects that need to get finished, projects that need to get quilted, projects that are 1/2 quilted....well, you all know what I'm talking about!

Sharon that storm dumped just enough of the white stuff for me as well. I was considering going to TT tomorrow for her first day of the sale but decided I really need to stay home and put the chaos in order up in the sewing room. I am getting very antsy to start that BTCT quilt..Happy New Year...

We got a bit more snow from that storm than you! It is lovely but treacherous to drive in even in my trusty Subaru! Icey and slick. I bet your list is as long as mine!LOL. I even have projects I didn't bother to put on my list since I know I won't get to them during the next year. My priority is to reduce the stack of completed tops and get some quilting done.

It is lovely Sharon. It's amazing how a little dusting of snow can change the landscape.

A list is a good idea. I don't have time right now but to do it but sometime in the near future.

No snow here but we have experienced the coldest December on record for our county in Florida.
