Show Me Some Snow


We left yesterday (Saturday) to take Sarah back to Penn State. Since it's 5 hours up and 5 hours back from our house, we like to leave after dinner and drive to Harrisburg, PA and stay overnight. So, this is what Harrisburg looked like this morning at 9am when we were starting our trek to State College..... Rain, rain, and yet more rain.
So, we get to State College and drop her off at the dorm and head out on the 5 hour return trip to NJ..... Snow!!! All I wanted to see was some snow and Pennsylvania did not disappoint me today..... I guess in one part of the state it was raining and a different part was snowing. I love the snow and would not be at all unhappy if I had to spend some quality time at home, in jammies, in the snow sewing :) Now, hubby has a different view on the snow since he's the one that would have to do all the shoveling and since they don't cancel work like they cancel school, he'd have to drive thru it all the time......

So, we are back and while hubby drove, I checked out 2 new magazines I got this weekend. American Patchwork & Quilting and Quilts & Gifts, both Better Homes and Garden magazines.... I have lots of ideas for last minute gifts rolling around in my head now......

Yesterday, before we left town, I finished a baby quilt that I need for probably March. It's for a teacher in school who's expecting her first baby. I picked these bright colors without knowing that she's looking for black and white for the baby room so I done good picking a pattern and color scheme.....

I think since it's early I might work on a few Christmas "surprises" for some lucky girlies I know.

What a cute baby quilt!

We just have a dusting of snow here, but it sounds like there is a big storm in WI that might be headed my way!
