Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!

Okay! Now Christmas can come. And it can snow all it wants to! I am finished my 'Let it Snow' wall hanging. At last! I must admit, it was a fun pattern. I started it at a Quilt Retreat in the fall of 2006. We spent a wonderful weekend there - just sewing and quilting - no cooking or cleaning or answering the telephone! We stayed at Scottman's Point. This is a view of the lake.
And a view of the beach and the last of the Kawartha autumn colours. It looks warm, but we had ice and snow on the drive up and frost overnight. But we were warm and happy in the main lodge, creating away at our machines!
That's me in the blue top. This was before my 'scooter' time. Don't I look happy? The woman standing was our president at that time, Sue. And the woman in the front left was my roommate, Julie. Oh, wow! Great memories!
And finally, a photo of my retreat pals with their creative endeavours. We were allowed to work on anything we wanted, but the Let it Snow pattern was provided by the organizer of our wonderful weekend, Linda.
