    The wished for snow came - and the mini top got pieced!

    Well, maybe there was more snow than I'd hoped for. At least I could finally get the snow blower started by myself for the first time this season. It's really awful getting old. While I waited out the storm, I finished cutting up some little scraps and assembled this min piece of fun. The colors make you think I might be looking for more than a blue and white landscape! The scrap strips pictured are pieces that I found while sifting through the piles. I think they might work. Time for a fiesta! Individual blocks measure 3" square.

    I grew up in Maine and oh, how I remember those storms we had! I do miss the beauty of white snow covering everything however. You all really got hit this year... Love your little quilt. Thanks for sharing.

    Beautiful snow picture, but then the quilt makes one take heart...think spring!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Oh I do like that and I love the snow, miss it. Maybe if I was snowed in I would get more sewing done, lol.

    I miss the clean lines of a snow covered garden. And I miss getting to the point in late fall/early winter where you can say unequivocally that you are finished in the garden for the year - because it is buried under 6 inches of snow!!

    Your little quilt is delightful, and so evocative of spring, and happy garden things. Thanks for sharing it!

    the snow is beautiful to look at but I really don't like it to last too long. We still have packed snow on the ground and they are saying more is on it's way.
    the mini is so cute. one way to keep yourself occupied and look at the countryside.

    I love your mini quilt. Someday I'm going to try and make one. Snow can be beautiful, but I'm ready for some warmer weather!
