A Fresh Snow Day 01 – and sadly, no snow today here in CO :/

A Fresh Snow Blog HopWell it’s still dark outside as I write this post this morning… and est time is 6:13 am… It’s very quiet here in the mornings, my hubby is still up in bed and I’ve got a few moments to get this post written very quickly for you.

I’m so excited you’ve stopped in today to visit for the first blog hop of the year. A Fresh Snow came from the idea for me when I ws working to get Wooly Block kits. I honestly had no intention of even participating in the event, but when I was sewing clothing the one fabric I loved working with was wool, then when we heard about the move to Colorado, that’s when I really decided that yep, I was going to participate, how lovely would it be to have a new quilt for my new home. Today isn’t my day and my project isn’t done, so I’ll be hopefully sewing on it all weekend long.. My friend Joan was here yesterday and it was so much fun meeting and chatting with her. She really got the everything in place for me to set my machines and desktop up, so I’m going to get that finished up this weekend.
