I visited my family in Ohio - we got over 16" of snow while I was there!
See more birds in the snow on flickr. We were snowed in for a couple of days. We had the two essentials: chocolate and electricity. I used the time to piece two Nickel Quilt tops which are graduation gifts.

During an Ohio visit earlier this month, my sister, Natalie and I worked together to make a Schlep Bag. I read the instructions, Natalie sewed. We used large "scraps" of heavy-weight "Save Our Planet" fabric for the outside. Because I just grabbed all the odd pieces of fabric when I packed, we only had enough for one bag. Natalie got to keep it - she will be using it for one of her many knitting projects.
Natalie contributed a cute smiley face cotton fabric for the lining. So bright & colorful! The bag is big and roomie - I can visualize it in a smaller size too. There are free instructions on the web - google "schlep bag" to find them. It took us about an hour to make it. I think the 2nd one will be faster!
