Snow Fun At All?

Saturday I left the house early in the morning and used Felix's 4WD vehicle because snow was predicted, but I was determined to make an appearance at the Keepsake Quilting retail shop's fat quarter sale.


I arrived before the snow fell at all and had to wait 5 minutes for the staff to open the doors. Within twenty minutes, I had my fat quarters and hurried home safely.


On the way home, I bothered to stop the car and take these two pictures for you of the rock outcroppings beside the highway near Mount Major.


New Hampshire is the "Granite State", after all, and the joke is, "Don't take NH for granite!" LOL!


When I got to the Alton/Gilmanton town line, one mile from my home, the first lazy little flakes began to drift down as I drove.

Miss Emma loves snow, but Tipper is hiding under the table!


Here is the loot from the Footprints Quilt Shoppe, plus a few selections from the internet, all prewashed now.


And Grace gave me a very special early Valentine in the form of a fat quarter that I adore! Thank you, Grace!


You know that I'm a sucker for a pretty floral, LOL!

Stay calm and quilt on!

Good timing, Vic!
DD#1 went to the sale Saturday, too, but I don't know that she got there that early. Looks like you had a good time--so did she. : )
