we need more snow?

It still hadn't started snowing at 6 this morning, so Marty got up to go to work.  By the time I got up, around 8:am, huge flakes were falling and this was the view out the front.  Needless to say, he never left the house.  The rhodies looked rather sad
  but the azalea bushes looked good enough to eat.
This was a heavy, wet, slushy snow and it was especially pretty so my camera got a workout today, capturing the woods.
 

 

 I won't post all of them, but you get the idea.  The plows and back hoes have been out all day and it is still snowing. Supposed to keep going till 4:00 tomorrow afternoon. My Studio Six crit group meeting was bumped to next week and my evening crit group, likewise.  But the Studio Montclair crit group is small, so we posted and commented on each others' work by e-mail this afternoon.  Turned out to be a pretty good conversation and while it will never take the place of a real meeting (with hugs and food and wine), it is a good thing to do between monthly meetings.

I leave you with this.  The current issue of Art Quilting Studio has an article I wrote, called "Cinderella Quilts."  They did a gorgeous job of photographing my work and I'm pleased with it. This beautiful magazine on heavy paper, is suspending publication after three issues. 
You might want to grab an issue, which will be a collector's item.

I spent the afternoon and evening throwing out piles of papers so I could rearrange the bookshelves in the sewing room and actually see what I have. If I couldn't file it, I threw it.  Anonymous would be proud of me.

P.S. - this is the last picture (for now) of Miss Emma. I promise. And you don't have to comment.  Just take in her expression and the pose. I wonder what she's thinking.

Congrats on the magazine! Sad that it's closing its doors after only three issues, though. :(

Emma is thinking, "I wonder how old I have to be before Grandmom takes me to Disney World?" ;)

You just show us all the pictures of Emma you want. She is precious!

Sorry to hear the mag went belly up so soon. There is a real shortage of good material out there, but this economy is tough.

I love looking at photos of snow, but I think I'll stay in southern CA where oddly enough we're having rain again!! Some babies seem to love the camera more than others and Emma is a winner. Thanks for the heads up about the magazine, I just ordered a copy, anything with something by you in it needs to be on my bookshelf. :)
