The Last Downy Quilt

This is what we got up to this morning. The daffodils are blooming, the tender young leaves on the hostas are unfurling, and it was about 38 degrees and snowing. Is that depressing or what? I thought about going back to bed, but instead I went down to the basement and finished binding my Downy quilt, reorganized the fabrics in a couple sewing cabinets, rearranged all the stuff on top of the cabinets, cleaned up all the workspaces, and just puttered around. I love puttering around in the sewing room.

This is what it looked like outside at noon time. Big wet snowflakes coming down pretty hard, but most of the snow on the ground was melted. By about 4:00 the sky was still dark but the sun was out, and the temperature shot up 5 degrees. Big deal. Tomorrow morning is supposed to be more of the same. Where is spring?

Sometime this afternoon I got the Downy quilt washed and dried for mailing on Monday. Cute fabrics, huh? This is the last of the Downy quilt kits, and I'm glad to have them behind me.

Love your photos of the snow...I cant imagine how that would be! Always loooks good in a photo, but not sure how I would travel actually living in it. Better than our dreadfully hot summers here... I hate the heat! Downey looks good ♥
