Show-n-Tell & 2013 AZ Blizzard

Pat Sloan is having a link-up party today.  You can go HERE to see what is up ;-)
It seemed fitting for me to show this photo since Pat is talking about "want to do" projects.
The snowball blocks are from a swap at least five years ago.  There are more blocks for another row down the side and then some left over.
 Gosh, I'm not sure if I want to turn these into a huge bed quilt or split them up into two lap size. It might be fun to make two and add a solid border for a place to add some applique.

Tucson residents are calling it the Blizzard of 2013.  For us it was just extra snowfall.  Below photo shows snow on Mustang Mountain behind our house. Snow sticking on those rocky craggy mountains is very unusual.

Poodles are having a ball running and chasing in the white powdery stuff.

The hens have no opinion as long as they get fed some scratch and treats.
It's warm out this morning, no heavy coat needed. Bet the snow is mostly gone by tomorrow.


  1. LOL...Living in Ohio, I find it amusing that anyone would call that a blizzard! But I suppose for some folks it is! :0)

  2. Well I'm glad that your blizzard isn't so dangerous! But it all depends on what you are accustomed to experiencing! Glad the poodles love the white stuff, ours do too, makes them extra frisky! Have a great day, can't wait to see what you do with that cool snowball quilt!
    Hugs, Mickie

  3. If only our snow would disappear so quickly! I'll take that kind of blizzard any day.

    I do love that snowball quilt. Since I'm in the middle of hand quilting a queen-size piece, I'm only interested in doing smaller projects next. With that handy-dandy quilting machine you have, I don't suppose a big one will be any problem for you. Can't wait to hear about your adventures quilting with that big frame.

  4. Beautiful blue top. We do not get snow in TX, glad the blizzard was not bad. Take care.
