Spring is in Full Retreat

Spring is in retreat today - a few inches of snow lay on the ground when I went to bed last night and a lot more this morning when I got up. Wet and heavy, this snow is wonderful for the water needs of Colorado. It's hard to concentrate on my computer when there is such a glorious view of the snowy landscape through my window. We're due for several more inches today and we may have to cancel the recognition dinner at High Peak Camp this evening. Even if we can get out, the camp roads won't be plowed. Delivery of our Denver Post was late, much to Wayne's dismay - no newspaper with his morning coffee makes him grumpy.

I'll be working in the loft today on a couple of sewing and quilting projects, one that I'm eager to complete and one that I'm eager to begin. The "Shadows" quilt is ready for the binding. I am pleased with how it has turned out. I may decide to add additional hand quilting. I ordered some fabric from yesterday to begin a baby quilt I found in 101 Patchwork Projects and Quilts. It has lots of little tabs for baby to explore and I have plenty of scraps of fabric just perfect for those tabs. I'm about to brew a pot of tea and head upstairs ... it promises to be a cozy productive day.
