    It has been a horrible day. I was working on a King size dresden plate quilt that I was going to sale to a lady. She saw mine and told me she wanted one and let her know when I got it done and the price. was working on free motion on the sashing and in a couple of places there was way to much material. I don't know what happened. I checked the back when I basted it and it looked good. even worse my material got hung on the foot went to get it out and cut a hole in it. and I was almost done with the whole top. so well what to do what to do watch it snow and hope I get enough so I can make me some snow creme. I hope that you day has been better than mine.

    If the hole is on the back, can you put a label over it?

    Snow ice cream receipe. Take an egg or two, about 1/2 cup sugar, teaspoon vanilla, beat well, add some milk, then start spooning in snow until it is sort of like ice cream. Eat right away, it doesn"t keep.

    Gosh, we never put an egg in ours. My mom would have died had she seen us eating raw eggs. It was still good! What did we know.

    We had enough snow today, but didn't even think about snow cream. Too late now, ice has set in.

    I'm sorry that this happened. I hope the snow cream helped. I had never heard of this. We're supposed to get 6 inches tomorrow, might have to try it!

    OOOHHHH, yes take a breather, sip some hot cocoa with lots, and i mean lots of marshmellows in it, and that should help get your day going better. At least i hope it does.

    Love the idea of snow cream. The best part of fresh snow is making snow cream... About the quilt. Can you fix the quilting. Remember applique covers holes fairly well....
