First Snow of the Year


This is Michele’s Strips and Salsa quilt using the Cuzco fabric collection.  I used Happy Times for the quilting design and Quilters Dream Blend batting.   I was hoping to get pictures outside today but it has been snowing for two days now.  Yesterdays snow was melting but today it is starting to accumulate!


We still have leaves on some of the trees and the Tamaracks are turning yellow now!


If you look closely you can see some ducks on the lake.


This should all melt as it is a bit early for the snow to stay.


  1. WOW! Gorgeousness - are you ready for winter ?

  2. Oh Kathy - as much as I hate, hate, hate winter - your pictures are so beautiful. It all looks so serene and peaceful. No snow yet in Dauphin, but I know it's coming! That quilt should help keep someone warm - it's gorgeous.

  3. Here it comes :) I do enjoy winter. Yours are so very beautiful with that gorgeous lake.

  4. I can't believe you have snow already probably because I have only seen it once in the last 38 years. Such gorgeous pictures and I never realised that a Tamarack is a tree! That's a pretty quilt too.

  5. Hard to believe that Mother Nature is already trying on her winter coat. Soon all her fall colours will only exist in our memories and in your work. Photos or quilting, you have the knack, keep up the great work.

  6. The first snow is always beautiful!

  7. I can't believe you have SNOW already!!! Beautiful pictures..........thanks for sharing.

  8. Oh my! I live in Arizona and we think its fall because its been under 100 degrees! Beautiful pictures!
