Snow (Again)

I'll be the first to admit that we do not handle snow well here in southern Indiana. Even with just a prediction of snow, parents call into school wanting to know if we're going to have an early release, grocery stores are overrun with people madly buying up all the milk and bread in sight, and breathless TV reporters stand on street corners and offer dire warnings about the soon-to-become icy streets.

Just imagine what it's like when we have what the meteorologists call a significant snow event.

Well, we're in for the big one this weekend. Predictions have gone from 4 inches to 4 -8 inches, to 8 -12 inches, and are now at 12 - 14 inches.

It's another snow day for us. The fifth one this year.

What's a quilter to do with a guilt-free Friday off?

Hmmmm. I do have a few projects to work on.

This one is another serendipity block. I've just fallen in love with how these go together, maybe because there's a little mystery involved. You don't really know how they're going to look until they're put together. Then, when you put together the central block there is the fun of trying different fabrics for the parts that go around the center.

Anyway, I'm going to pour another cup of coffee and see about getting another block or two done this afternoon.

You lucky dog. Up here they were predicting 6-9 inches and I think we've gotten maaaaybe an inch after a full day of snowing. Hmph.
