More winter weather

In spite of the snow, I lined these 3 small quilts up on the railing of the balcony to take this photo. These quilts were pieced by Wanda and sent to me for quilting. They'll be donated by Cricket to homeless families in the NE as part of the HeartStrings Quilt Project.

They're calling for 3-5 inches of snow today but if this keeps up I bet we'll get more than that. Hopefully I won't have a problem getting to the airport tomorrow. I have to be there VERY early!

What an awesome photo!! The snow in the background really allows the colors in the quilts to sing!

The quilts look so warm and bright against all that snow. We have about 10 inches here and still coming down hard. It is beautiful because we don't have to go anywhere.

The contrast between the snowy background and the quilts is wonderful! Kind of reminds me of a b&w photo that has had a portion colorized. Very nice!

Hope the weather cooperates tomorrow and you are able to leave town as planned. Safe travels.

Excuse me as I drool on the keyboard for a minute...... I know since I don't have to go out it looks even more fun. But darn I miss having at least a few drops of snow! Pray for something to fall this winter. Have a good trip!
