No, I am not making this up. I know...because I was out picking the last of the green beans in it. Big white flakes drifting across my cheek, the dogs with white overcoats on their backs.
And the tomatoes.
And the zucchini. (Found one good-sized beauty hidden under the leaves, plus a bunch of little guys.)
They're now chopped, blanched and resting peaceably in the freezer. The veggie mix...not the dogs!
(Oh, and Daughter #2, who lives in Nederland, a couple thousand feet higher than us, got 2" of snow. But Denver and Boulder -- just rain.)
I've been here, trying hard to finish quilting an old top. Trying to get things cleaned up and put away. Trying to get a bunch of appraisal-related stuff done. And wishing hard that the QUILTS OF THE GOLDEN WEST books would get their little fannies here from Kansas City...I'm so tired of waiting for them. Feeling a tad 'off,' but I can't tell if it's flu, or just exhaustion. I haven't been getting a whole lot of sleep lately, and what I do get is often full of restlessness or strange dreams.
Leaving tomorrow night for teaching in Omaha at the Quilt Restoration Workshops, then on to Michigan for about 1 1/2 weeks. You'll hear from me, though -- I plan to check in regularly, unlike my sparse posts this past week. (Sorry. It wasn't on purpose. Honest.)
Allison Aller, you are the WINNER for the Anniversary patchwork pack! Please post, and let us know if you'd like a Crazy quilt-related pack...or a regular patchwork one. Congratulations!
And if you'll bear with me, I'll announce another giveaway this week sometime!
