    Foxflower Love your blocks The second one made from lefts overs is very striking...ok I promised myself I would try to use a different word then .. Awesome..but Its the only one that comes to mind whenever I see something so pleasing to the eye. .. Im so excited to see what everyone is doing with their mystery piece. I never get tired of looking at all the variations. There is some truly wonderful talent on this train. Whitepine I will be happy to share a glass of your Canoe Ridge Cabernet . I think it will go wonderfully with the Cheese and Crackers that have been served.
    Have an awesome day!

    Pokerdiva, this amount of snow took everybody (not just the weatherstation) off guard. It's normal to get an an inch or two this time of year but a foot overnight it unusual.

    Everose, I wish I could have flung it as far as ND!! You can have some of the mud too. Yep last year was wet and this year dry. This is the most snow we've had all winter, probably put together.

    OKsewnsew, we definitely live in the country and the mountains. We are at about 4500 feet. Most people would consider this the middle of nowhere. It is a good life, even when I have to shovel out gates, load hay, and feed and water a bunch of animals.

    Thank you all for the nice compliments. I think I'll make a baby quilt with this for a colleague. She's having a girl. Green and purple with a touch of pink thrown in there ought to be great.

    Foxflower, are you near Meadow Valley in Northern Calif? My SIL lives there and she was telling us about the last snow fall. March was the snowiest month this winter for us too. It is mostly melted now, but tonight it got really cold again. i hope we are through with the snow for now. I live in the San Bernardino Mtns at 4800 ft and I get more comments from people, saying they did not know it snowed in California!

    I am leaving in the morning to take a train to Central Valley, near Fresno to spend Easter with my son and his family. I will be back to tame the wild geese on Wednesday.

    Happy Easter to all of my quilting buddies on this train~
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    This is really scrappy quilt. I had to hunt for fabric to go with what I already had.

    I don't know where Meadow Valley is, so I'm thinking we aren't very close. We are in the far northern reaches of Northern CA. Many people don't realize just how diverse California is with flora, fauna, and weather. I've surprised a few people with snow reports as well.

    remember one year camping in the sierras in the middle of August and waking up to the children yelling"it's snowing"

    people watch the Rose Parade each year and see the snow on the verdugo and san gabriel 'mountains' (really tall hills) and then are surprised we have snow....guessing they do not realize the state is wide as well as long and sea level to tall mountain range, a couple of hours drive away.

    Even being a CA native, I can sort of understand the shock. I've never lived south of Marin County. So when I was in Pasadena last week I definitely noticed the differences between northern and southern CA. It's all the same state but sometimes it seems worlds apart to me too. Anyway, lest anyone think I don't like the rest of the country, I've also lived in WA and briefly, MI. Each state and area has it's own beauty.....snow or no snow!

    We can't be too far from each other if you are in the way north of California and I am in the way south of Oregon. I am about at 4200 feet.

    Talking about your CAlifornia geography
    .... many don't realize that the Northern part of California, is further north,
    than the southern most part of Ontario, Canada!!!

    Naomi, those look lovely.

    PokerDiva -- we are far northeastern Ca, so depends on what part of southern oregon you are. If you are in Lakeview, or even Klamath Falls, then yep, we're close.

    I am in Klamath Falls. It is snowing almost everyday but doesn't really stick around. Not the usual winter. We have had lots of wind storms though.

    Oh man, you have quick access to Tater Patch! Several of the Ladies from our guild are making the BOM with them. I get up there once or twice a year. We used to go up there more but it's a pretty far for a day trip with 2 young children. And to children and trying shop Tater Patch -- I've learned not to go with 2 children in tow!

    Naomi your block is great and i really like the way the geese turned out, not sure which way they fly in the final clue but like the contrast!

    Fox flower when you were in Pasadena I sure hope you went to the NewMoon Fabric store on Colorado blvd.

    DeeCee good to see you...hope you will join us in the dining car for High Tea.

    QuiltE would that include London, Ontario, Canada.........where my Father was born ?

    My geese are finally done. A cat and geese in the same sewing room is not a good idea! But both are under control now. Off to the club car!
