snow day craftiness

We're right in the middle of a big winter storm here that is affecting much of the southeast. The snow is piling up in Asheville and the ice is forecasted to come in tonight. I think we could potentially be out of school most of this week, which means that we'll very likely be making up this missed time on subsequent Saturdays and over spring break. I'm trying not to think about that though.

We've had a great snowy weekend here with our neighbors. There has been sledding, football watching, and massive amounts of chili and cornbread consuming. Beyond that, I've used any available time when Trip could supervise the kids to go downstairs and work on my quilt. Here is the top almost complete--it just needs another border. Once I get the batting and backing, I can quilt it all together. I'll post pictures of the final product when it is all done (which may be a while).
This productive time at home has made me miss last year when I stayed at home all year with the kids. I don't have much time to dwell on this though. Its back to the grind again soon with my graduate classes starting next week.
