Snow Day! Who ordered this?

Is this for real? Snow in the middle of April? Who is responsible for this? Have you checked out the size of the snowflakes? They appear to be clumps of snow, something right out of a Charlie Brown episode. I will admit it is quite beautiful!

Hum..... I was going to make a trip to Montreal this afternoon for an award ceremony at university, and a dinner date with a school friend, but no thanks I'll pass. The weather forecast predicts more snow and sleet. This is not the type of weather that you want to find yourself driving at night on autoroute 15 - white out territory! Have you ever been in a situation where you cannot see two (2) feet in front of you and the only thing you can do is take your foot off the gaz peddle and pray that you will come out of this soon and that no one has stopped in the middle of the highway? That's the 15 for you. In these conditions, it's an accident waiting to happen.

Looks like today is a perfect day to finish Carolyn's quilt. I did manage to use my original border choice, despite errors in cutting. The machine quilting is finished on it, it's a matter of putting the binding on and hand sewing. I will have to make an effort to get my Bernina Designer Plus V software to work for me. I need a label!

Off to get some quilting done before I get sucked into cyberspace blog reading. Being a stalker is hard work! ;o)

Happy quilting!

That is the same view I am seeing out my window here in Maine. Someone forgot to tell the weather it is APRIL.

Yep...I know exactly the road conditions you are talking about. I can remember a drive from Montreal to Boston...same scary weather!

Carole, A snowed-in day for sewing is never a bad day! Perhaps the amount of sewing will be proportional (is that a word?) to the amount of snow on the ground.

From the snowy picture it looks like a great day to stay inside and sew sew and keep sewing. We are getting cold rain here, not nice for going outside.
