I love snow days! Over the years, I have realized that one should never discuss religion, politics or love of snow in public settings--people have very, very, very strong opinions on those topics! I have had my share of death threats when I wore an "I Love Snow" button to work. One woman told me to take off the button in her not-so-nice voice.
Snow days are special to me because they are the closest thing I get to stopping my world for a day. The whole family is together and all the activities cease for just a little while. There is time for me to catch my breath. I could use a snow day this month.....

Sarah took her sewing machine to school every day for two weeks. You should have seen her navigating her sewing machine and cello on Fridays....in the rain.....but she soldiered on!
So, to acknowledge those who served without leaving anyone out, we are going to write the names of veterans' organizations on the blocks instead of individual names.
P.S. I haven't forgotten about a give-away--am sort of swamped with recitals, graduation and birthday/holiday preparations/celebrations at the moment. Besides, I am still looking for something cool to give away. My new plan it to post to my blog every week, regardless of what I am working on. Have a few ideas for patterns that I'd like to share with you, too. Am hoping to recharge my battery and have a new BOM for January. We have done pieced block and applique blocks--which do you prefer?
Big quilty hugs!!
