Snow, Snow, Snow

The snow was beautiful as long as you didn't have to get out our your house.  I got to work from home all week. It is Friday and I am ready to get out.  Looking forward to seeing "The Sassy Stitchers" at Patchwork Cottage tomorrow. 

The Sassy Stitchers Quilt Retreat is only 2 weeks away..  It is sure to be a  fun weekend of quilting.  We are just hoping it doesn't snow in the Blue Ridge Mountains that weekend.  We enjoyed it this week because we were at home.

Omnigrid measures 6 inches of snow in my back yard.

How beautiful is my Christmas Tree - All it needed was lights and ornaments...

My Daisy - She will be 17 in two months - The snow was a little much for her old bones, but she went out like a good girl with her sweater and then came back in for a nap..

Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone.  Sorry I haven't written on my blog in weeks.  My mother fell and broke her hip on December 9th.  I have been back and forth to Louisiana.  She is still in the hospital, but she is being a trooper.  Seems like everytime we take a step forward, it seems like we fall two steps backwards.
I will be back blogging soon.  I would like to thank everyone for their emails, calls and text messages during this time.  Your support and concern is greatly appreciated.
I hope everyone has a Happy, Healthy and Safe New Year.
