We had the most perfect day in San Antonio yesterday--75 and sunny. It was made even better by the fact that we escaped Thursday before Northern California became a snowy mess.
I started San Antonio with a quick stop and delivery at the Quilters Market show. Then we made a little jaunt over to see the Memories by the Yard shop. What a wonderful, big shop---full of all kinds of quilt fabric and decorator fabric, too. Their RoseCard displays are shown over on the rosecardpatterns.blogspot.com site. Here we a a nice shot of the colorful front area of the shop.

Before the duck hunting waders get put away for the season, they must be used for mucking out the reeds from the pond. Those pesky reeds are prolific, so hand-pulling them out by the roots is the most permanent solution. The 60 year old body did not agree at the end of the day, but it was a good dig.

I spent yesterday as a guest helper at the Junior Quilters Workshop. Our Pine Tree Quilt Guild offers classes for young quilters--unique in Northern California. Group leader Dianne chose 2 RoseCard patterns to use for the projects, so naturally I wanted to be there. Moms are there to cut and support, and other guild member assistants. We have one veteran family who have done a lot of quilting with the guild--their projects were half done! I'll wait to show them off when they are done, which will likely be soon.

Leann had a snow day Friday--Austin nearly shut down with 3/4" of snowfall. She was amused, and loved reporting to her brother in Minnesota that Texas declared a day off, while he has yet to have one with all of their cold, snow and wind chill. Texas weather being Texas weather, though, it was 65 on Saturday.
