Maggie Smith said...

Unfortunately we do have snow in the UK but not too much mostly in the Midlands. I would like to make a snowman with my granddaughter who lives in Derbyshire but I dont drive so by the time I could get there by train (I live in Coventry) it will have probably disappeared. One day maybe she will be visiting when it snows and I will get to complete my dream.

Sowing Stitches said...

hahahahahhaaaaaa :) Can't believe you asked.... :) Why I quilt of course while watching old movies drinking cocoa as I happily sew the snow away! :)

I love your orange and grey helix pattern. Thanks for the giveaway!

usagypsy said...

Not many snow days now here in Nevada. But when I lived in Alaska there were plenty! After shoveling and playing with the dogs in the snow we would make hot chocolate and wrap in blankets to warm up. Then we might have baked cookies or spent a quiet afternoon reading or TV and for me of course crafting.

usagypsy said...

I love your Plus Plus.

Barb in Mi said...

My vote is for your helix quilt pattern - thank you!

Barb in Mi said...

It was -30C degrees this weekend (-40 with the windchill). I make a big pot of earl grey tea and spend the day playing on my longarm.

Thanks for the chance.

Deb (Two Cheeky Monkeys) said...

I don't live where it snows, but probably make a snowman if I did!

Mike Pearson said...

Stay inside and sew sew sew haha

Gene Black said...

Depending on how I feel and what type of snow it is: I may go out and be a little boy reveling in the new snow OR i may just snuggle up in a quilt and read.

Anne said...

I am mesmerized by the beauty of the falling snow. The flakes just fall upon us, blanketing the world, sending it all in to a little hush. The white brightens up an otherwise gray sky. I always enjoy seeing the bright blue sky after the storm has cleared. The sun shines on all the whiteness. Magnificent.

Ellee said...

I'd go snowboarding if the roads were cleared, or I'd work on one of my quilts-in-progress accompanied by some hot chocolate and a radio for company. -- soparkaveataoldotcom

Anne said...

I still like the Plus Plus quilt. My eyes are drawn to it.

Ellee said...

My favorite pattern is Color Blast. -- soparkaveataoldotcom

Judy H said...

making sure the bird feeders are filled up and then sitting by the big patio doors and watching the birds in the snow while enjoying a big cup of coffee.

Judy H said...

love the chevron baby quilt

Andrea said...

Well the first thing I do is go out and take pictures of all the beautiful snow on our six acres of property. Then I'd stay indoors sewing/quilting while listening to a good book on cd and keeping my fire going while drinking tea and eating double chocolate muffins. Yum! And I'd make sure I looked out the windows frequently at all that snow since it's so infrequent.

Andrea said...

I love your Plus Plus quilt pattern. Thanks for your giveaway

Sherry Von Fumetti said...

After shoveling (or blowing) off the driveway, I'd wait until the evening and shop because no one is out when the roads are snow covered. svonfumetti at yahoo dot com

Sherry Von Fumetti said...

I like the orange & greay helix quilt. It would look great in a number of color ways. svonfumetti at yahoo dot com

Nykie P said...

The orange and grey helix is gorgeous, and would make a wonderful gift for my god-son. May I have a copy please? This is such a lovely offer - thank you, and Merry Christmas

Nykie P said...

I think it has only ever snowed in my home town 6-7 times that I remember, and having snowball fights was the best we could manage with the little there was. It was great fun :)

Sallie said...

Stay inside, with fire going, and drinking hot tea.

Sallie said...

Orange and Gray Helix - thanks for the giveaway!

Allison said...

It's a bit lame, but I like to just sit inside and look at it while I drink hot cocoa!

Gill said...

I'd love a copy of your plus plus pattern!

michelle @ sewnhenge said...

Honestly, I'd love to just be lazy and watch tv in my pajamas all day, with some sewing thrown in :) But alas, that will never happen since I live in TX so there will never be snow and have children so I can never be lazy. HA!

Marjorie Nath said...

When I lived in Seattle, where it does snow, I use to love to cuddle up in a quilt in front of a fire and read or sew and just relax. Now that I'm retired ans living in Mexico, I would probably go out and play in it because we haven't had any snow in the 4 years we have been here.

Giles said...

For my second entry I had an enjoyable hop over to etsy to look at your fab patternds! I really like the helix and if you don't mind sending a copy that'd be awesome! I fancy making it using the colours you have in the pillowcase version. I can see myself giving the Windows and Colour Blast quilts a try too! :)

watch the snow fall while enjoying a hot cup of coffee

Dawn said...

No snow days here in Houston, but when I was growing up in KS and we had snow days we play outside, make snow angels, but be sure to keep an area fresh so when we were ready to go in we would get several huge bowls of fresh snow and make snow ice cream. It was fabulous!!

jmniffer said...

I'm all for staying inside and sewing up a storm with the occasional break for hot chocolate or soup. Many chances for that here in Minnesota!

Michele T said...

I love to go cross country skiing on a snowy day!! Thanks for the chance!

Michele T said...

I love your PlusPlus pattern - must make one of these soon!!

Hi Richard, We get plenty of snow here in Alberta and do not have snow days. It gets fairly cold ( we have had a big cold spell recently with a week of inside recess because the weather was too inclement to go outside.
The schools remain open even when the schoolbuses don't run.
Thanks for participating in the blog hop- it is always fun.
Regards from Alberta,
Anna

CraftyHourMom said...

The snow's very pretty but I'll enjoy from inside. I like the snow until the new year - then it can leave. But doesn't. Until April or May sometimes. Yeah. Alberta.

atabanana29 said...

I love your baby block quilt!

Nita said...

I quite like the baby blocks :)

Nikita said...

we dont get much snow here in this part of Texas I can recall maybe three years ago was the first time I had ever seen sooo mmuucch snow here, but usually.. if it does get cold and icy last the past week.. I like tos tay in and sew, or hang out and play legos with my children.

Kirsten said...

Snow day = watching a series, reading a book, or browsing the net. With tea. Earl Grey to be exact.

Sangeetha said...

knit, watch movies

Jodi said...

Snow days do not happen on the East Coast of Australia. Heck I don't think they have "Snow Days" in the Snowy Mountains in Australia when it does snow. We do have "flood days" where children don't come in because the school bus can't cross flooded cause ways or low bridges. I lived in town so that didn't apply to me. Some schools have had Fire danger days - where Catastrophic fire conditions combined with fires already burning make it to dangerous to go to school. Never had one of these either.

pennydog said...

I stay in and sew! Though we usually trek to the supermarket with the dog and pretend to be Arctic explorers and fill up our backpacks just in case ;)

Wendy said...

it doesn't happen over here very often, so once I've made sure the bunnies are safe, warm and protected, I'd sit infront of the TV with some coffee and hand sewing

Born4Travel said...

Build up a nice fire, grab a book and a cup of tea and stay inside. :) Thanks for the chance to win!

Jo said...

I have become the person who likes to drink hot cocoa by the wood stove wrapped in a blanket reading a trashy romance novel

Jo said...

I love your orange and grey helix pattern

Amanda said...

Hot cocoa and a good book! Or go for a snowy hike if not too cold! :)

mary said...

I like to make the house warm by baking some goodies in the kitchen.

I like the simple table runner pattern.

bee said...

taking a walk in the snow and watching movies or quilting

Heidi said...

One of my favorite memories is selling the snow blower before moving south! I do miss sledding though!

dawn - Mi rincón de mariposas said...

here we've snow almost never. So if we're lucky and get a few we go to the mountains to play with it. 2 years ago it snowed in the city, it was wonderful!
thanks!

Stephanie said...

I like to sit inside and drink tea.

greeblygreebly said...

My favorite thing to do on a snow day is to laze around with the kids baking and drinking cocoa and enjoying how warm we are in the house. :) When we lived in a snowier climate my favorite thing to do was to get together with friends and huddle around drinking cocoa out of a thermos and chatting while our kids went sledding.

greeblygreebly said...

Your orange and grey helix is my favorite. Very cool and different plus I really like the color combo.

Rocksteadyemme said...

hot cocoa and crochet!

Brooke said...

I enjoy a cup of hot cocoa and a good book, but that doesn't happen often since I have 4 kids. I do enjoy a good game of Dutch Blitz.

LittleHouseontheDairy said...

Drink hot cocoa.

Crystal Hendrix said...

Drinking hot chocolate looking out at the snow :D

Crystal Hendrix said...

The orange and grey helix :D Nicely done

Sue said...

Snow, what's snow? I live in Florida! Ok, it did snow Christmas of 1989...no one up north would have noticed but we did! The kids got all bundled up and played in the snow for several hours. When they got up the next morning there was no sign of it. So playing in the snow is a real treat for a Florida kid!

Jenny E said...

Yay snow day! Stay in my jammies, watch movies with the hubby!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Deci Worland MacKinnon said...

To sit inside with an Irish Coffee in hand.

Susan said...

Well, depends on what kind of snow it is and how bad the wind is blowing. If it is a nice gentle snow, I love to go for a walk in it. If it is too windy and icy, I like to stay inside and cuddle in a quilt.

I love sleeping in and curling up with tea and a nice book!

Jill R. said...

I like just sitting inside and watching it come down. Thanks for the giveaway!

karen christensen said...

Since we don't have snow in Phoenix I like to watch the weather channel to see all the snow other places because it reminds me that is one of the reasons we moved here.

karen christensen said...

Your rag quilt is very pretty. My email is below connected with my gmail account.

Barbara Bradford said...

At our house, if it's a snow day that means that we have no Dish TV. Which means I spend a little more time talking to my husband, which always leads to a new project. All our projects either start on a snow day or on a long drive..

Barbara Bradford said...

I have always wanted to make a Rag Quilt Pattern. They look so comfy,

Denise Russell said...

Other than quilting? Write...

desertskyquilts said...

On a snow day, I'd do what I do most other days - sew! If there were no electricity, I'd do hand embroidery or drag out the hand crank. It sounds lovely to me - no one could call and want me to go anywhere, because I'd be snowed in!

desertskyquilts said...

Of your currently available patterns, I believe my favorite is now windows, but I'm pretty sure I downloaded it already. =)

craftysorcha said...

I love to go out and play in the snow (I'm a child at heart!), and then come inside, and sit in front of a roaring fire and have a lovely hot bowl of soup or a hot chocolate! :)

sandyandcosmo said...

I grab my dog and take a walk in the snow, I love it!

Anna McCurdy said...

a snow day is a perfect day to put soup in the slow cooker and read a good book or put my pedal to the metal and sew.
I am still debating whether I will stay home this evening and sew or go to a potluck and visit some quilty friends.
Snowy driving can be challenging.
Thanks for participating in the blog hop.

elflyn said...

I live in Queensland Australia, it doesn't snow here but if I ever was somewhere and it was snowing I think I would have to run around in it and build snowmen and generally act like a kid in a lolly shop.

Kathy H said...

We usually watch a Christmas movie, make some cookies and hot chocolate.

Holly U said...

As a work at home mom, I'm sorry to say that a snow day for my son is still a work day for me! But one of these days I'm going to take him sledding. Thanks!

Susan said...

I also live in Queensland, Australia. Apparently a few flakes fell here one year, but melted as soon as they got near the ground.
I think an open fire and hot drinks would be good on a snow day.

Susan said...

I like your Color Blast pattern.

Holly U said...

I just downloaded the "Windows" quilt and love Color Blast too. Looks like a great introduction to triangles, which are next on my list. thanks!

Deb said...

Stay inside and watch it snow, sit by the fireplace and sew..add in a little chocolate!
