Well, I am currently in snow. Not the snow pictured below, mind you, but in snow nevertheless. The snow below is  just a little snippet of last weekend for us. The very first snow of the year in California so we had to go and find it!

Currently I am in Utah teaching and lecturing in the most beautiful snow setting you have ever seen. Near Park City at Daniel's Summit Lodge. A girl could get used to this kind of loveliness!

Just thought I would pop in for a hello in between classes. Hope you are having a great time sewing and quilting! Stay tuned for some new yumminess coming up soon.




 … my little snow bunny and her many faces. I loved that is was snowing on us as we played!






 … my eldest and hub in action!




 … my middle one, who decided that sledding was boring and he was going to make a snowboard out of it! Now, just so you know, he has never snowboarded a day in his life. He went up and down that hill all afternoon, standing up the whole time! I guess its time for us to look into snowboarding lessons.


 … monkey see, monkey do!


It was a really great day!

    Happy you and your lovely family got some time for fun in the snow. I live up in Ontario Canada and we have had very little snow so far this winter and it is really boring and grey when there is no snow to frolic in.

    Glad you had such a wonderful day!
    I laughed at the picture of snow coming up into their faces while sledding downhill!
    Take care, Leslie

    Oh I wish I could hear your lecture! I’m not that far away. I hope you’re having a wonderful time. We love Utah. Such a wonderful place to live. Wish we had more snow. It’s crazy that we haven’t got that much this year, but I am sure there is much more there in P.C.

    Have a great visit!

    I hadn’t realized that California got much snow until we went there on vacation a few years back. It was hotter’n all get out here (a little Arkansas hillbilly-speak) the middle of June and we go to California to see the Redwoods and all the other sights and its cold as all get out! Wow, the things you find out when you get out of the mountains! LOL!

    Looks like ya’ll had a good time!
