Just when we thought it was Spring....

we had snow today!! Not a lot; just a light dusting.... but reminded me that it really is still Winter in this part of the world.  I have been working on purses and oven mitts..... I think I will make some oven mitts for Christmas presents... this one is far too Springy.....The bags are for my sister and my mom.

I am off to Vancouver, B.C., to visit my son and THEN off to a weekend quilt retreat...... I am going to search for new fabrics at Maiwa on Granville Island and look for some pottery inspiration, as well.

a contrary wind raises it higher.

Great bags and mitts Debbie. I think that snow surprised you last year too. I have never attempted making an oven mitt. Looks interesting.

Cute gift items that I know will be loved. Springy is the way it is in my neck of the woods - little robin outside my window just chirping away.
