It's Here!

Oh yes, sir-ee.  The snow arrived around 9:30 this am.  Light little snowflakes coming down heavily.  It's been snowing ever since.  I'm hearing a bit of "ping" now so it might be turning to snow and sleet.  We've got about 5" so far, probably more because I went out an hour or so ago.  The birds devoured the food in the feeder so when I stopped for lunch I refilled the feeder. 

It's like Grand Central Station at the feeder.  Because of the pole you can't see all the birds gathering around the feeder.  But they are in and out like a major airport at Thanksgiving. 

And here the birds are waiting to get to the feeder.  Hum, does that make it Grand Central Station Waiting Room? 

I spent the morning in the studio working on a Project Linus quilt.  Remember that Carousel Horse panel I showed the other day?  I'm working on blocks to go with that. It isn't going as fast as I would like it to but it is going.  I don't think I will make it as large as I originally had planned or I'll be at it until March.  I'm thinking in terms of 80 to 90 blocks now.  I have about 30.  I'm going to have to find a few more fabrics to go with it.  I've already cut up and used about 5 dabs of fabric -- fat quarters or less.  Time to go make some cookies.  Nothing like baking on a cold afternoon!  

Happy Quilting All.  Stay warm and dry!  Bonnie  


  1. *sigh* all we got was rain rain rain down here in South Central PA. I hope we get some white stuff for Christmas Day.

    Your pictures are lovely and I am totally jealous.

    Holiday Hugs!!!

  2. I wish we'd get a bit of snow too....but I'm in Florida so that is unlikely! It looks beautiful!

  3. Bonnie, we have been hammered with snow here in central NY. My husband is away working in TX so I am doing the snowblowing and shoveling myself. The snow is so pretty though, isn't it? I also love watching the birds eat from the feeders. Do the squirrels get in your feeders? In this area we have some black squirrels. They remind me of rats. Yuck. Someone suggested I put food under the feeders for the squirrels so they will leave the birdfeeders alone. It worked until the food on the ground was finished! Merry Christmas Bonnie! I really enjoy your blog!

  4. We got freezing rain and then snow and then wind and then no power! Anyway...I have bird feeders too. They keep me company and I make sure they are full for my birdies.


Thanks for visiting. Let me know what you're thinking about.
