Happy Mail and Snow!

Quilt show

April's snow

How nice it is to find an American envelope in the mail box! I was expecting this mail for three weeks!
It is a gift from my blogger friend Diane from Butterfly Threads Quilting. Last month, when I read this post in her blog and expressed my regret not to live in USA and thus not to be able to visit the Bullock Hall Quilt Show that she was attending, she had the sweet thought to send me the catalogue and the DVD of the exhibition. And what a lovely surprise to find that she added some presents in the envelope : two quilt patterns and a template of hers! The pattern explanations are written behind the cards and are so clear and easy to understand. Thank you so much Diane!

The second picture shows another surprising event when I opened the shutter of the lounge this morning : snow... at this time of the year!! Here in Greece, we celebrate the Orthodox Easter next Sunday... under the snow???

  7. Two surprises! Good for you, Christine. Maybe you can save some the snow - it's going to be a long hot summer very soon.

  12. Snow at Easter? Well, we had a rare white Easter too, here in Toronto. But you must be very high up to be getting snow where you are. I hope it warmed up later!
