Snow in Alabama and another Surprise

We had heard it forecast, but in Alabama we never believe in snow till we see it. This morning I  immediately went to look out and see.  It was still dark then, but I turned on the deck light to see. SNOW!  Okay so I am not really that excited. I spent two years in Ohio, I have had my share of snow. Now that it is nice and light, although still overcast, I took a picture to show you. We have about an inch according to "Mr. Weatherman" See the snow.




In other news, I got a faithful follower prize from   Pat   for commenting on every post she posted for a period of time. I didn't even know she was counting. I wasn't!  She sent fabric (to feed my fabric-a-holic  disease!)  A fun little trivia book on Country music. i confess that I have looked at it a bit and know way too many of those answers. You see my mother's family play country music and I grew up listening to it. AND a darling little quilt related magnet. It  says " Any day spent quilting is a good day"
I absolutely love all the fabrics. I mean, just look a BIG print butterfly fabric, striped fabrics in vivid colors, a nice abstract in blue tones with green and black, and lovely HOT peppers on black.
THANKS PAT.  I can see me using every bit of this prize pack.   Color me Vividly happy.

we got squat at my house. But we did drive to bass por-shops today and my kids were looking longingly at the dusting left on the trees. (I lived in UT for a couple of years so hubby and I were definitely not excited by a light dusting!)
