    Have been following the posts for weeks and decided to dive in and join posting. Currently am snowbound in northeast Texas (90 miles east of Dallas) with 8 inches of snow. I have taken advantage of the time to do some hand quilting (not my strong suite) and to read. I have been inspired by many of the projects I have seen on this site. I would say my level of expertise is intermediate. I have two current WIPs. The first is coordinating a purple quilt to be used as a fundraiser by my Pilot club to raise awareness of Alzheimer's disease. The second is completing a Christmas project in response to the President's challenge I issued to my quilt guild.

    Hello and welcome from a former Dallasite/Keller/Austinite, now living in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of VA.

    I remember my very first winter in Dallas, 1983, we had snow and 7 degrees temps for nearly a week at Christmas. Finally adjusted to the idea that north Texas can have a temp. range of nearly 100 degrees in any given year!!

    Enjoy your weekend while house-bound, it'll pass pretty quickly as I remember.:D

    I remember 1983! We normally do not have this much snow. This is the second heavy snow since New Years for us. Still it is not as deep as it was when I was a child in Virginia and Boston. Dalas/Ft Worth has had it much worse with ice. I plan on staying in and sewing or reading. Who knows I may finish a UFO before Monday!
