We had a light sprinkling of snow this weekend. It didn't last very long but it made for very lovely scenery. I remember reading somewhere that when doing patchwork, using a bit of grey will make a quilt rich and very elegant.

As a Southern California girl, the snow and the grey skies seem very mysterious to me. Not at all "dreary" as some people feel. Of course this level of snow is easy to handle. I've lived in other areas of Japan where I couldn't get the doors open in the house because of the weight of the snow on the roof!

Snowy days are great for doing a little quilting!

Your photos are lovely. Near Philadelphia has had odds and ends of snow. But what we are waiting for is enough snow to close the school for a day! Now there is a random act of kindness on the part of The Creator!

The pictures of the light snow look so peaceful. I'm with you a little snow is nice, lots of snow not so nice! For one, I don't know how to drive in it, which means I'm stuck to the house if there's a heavey snow. At least you got a "quilt" date out of it. I'm sure it was cold out anyway.
