Stopping by woods on a snowy morning

While most of my family, including Cindy, was basking in the Florida sunshine last weekend, I decided that it was high time I saw my quilting mentor. I haven’t seen her since July when we snuck in an outdoor happy hour at her lovely home not far from the farm. So I invited her to a socially-distanced tea at the “Y” at the top of the hill by the farm on Saturday morning.

We planned to sit in our cars and chat, but I wanted to make it a little more special, so I made a pitcher of Lady Grey tea, packed some quilts and some chairs, and a tea table and headed for the hill. The sun was shining and the wind was still, so the setting was beautiful and calm, if a little cold.

What a wonderful hour and half we had! I was so happy to spend time with her.

We have been friends since kindergarten!

A group of snowmobilers drove by while we were enjoying the fresh air. They turned around and came back and asked to take our picture. If they think we were crazy, that’s exactly how I think about snowmobilers! LOL!

Later on Saturday, I went home to warm up and sew, where I made a giant, project-destroying error. Not to worry, a seam ripper and a rotary cutter will turn that fabric into scraps someday–after I finish crying. If you are looking for me this weekend, you’ll find me at Material Rewards where I’ll be starting over. It happens to everyone, right?

I’ll leave you with a little burst of spring.

You never know what you will find at Costco! Loving these tulips!

    I foresee a snow picnic in your future Pandemic get-togethers! I love this – all of it from the tea time to the quilts to the tulips.
    You’re blessed to have such a friend to ‘weather’ the Pandemic Storm with.

    I am so jealous! Here I was in Florida and you had a winter tea “up the hill”. What a cool thing to do…haha, get it? I wonder if our great, great grandmother, great grandmother and grandmother ever had tea there? It’s always fun to think about things like that. I’ll be up for maple syrup season, see you soon!

      In the winter I always think of the ancestors on horse-drawn sleighs whisking along the hill while snuggling under piles of quilts. It was probably less romantic than imagine it. See you soon!
