Six Word Saturday and Sunday Shadows February 8-9, 2014


Our weather is finally becoming winter!
We've had a severe drought here in all
of California. It started snowing yesterday 
and hopefully will cotinue.

Baby Quilt for Stan and Maggie's Grandchild

Finally finished all 6 tops for 6 babies!
Now they've been mailed to the quilter-
and she;ll mail them back to me so I can
put on the binding and then mail them off
once each baby has been born.

Wow, I didn't think there was a place anywhere, that was just now getting winter! Yikes, I like my winters, have fun in them too, but we've had way too much of it this year! Enjoy!

Congrats on the arrival of winter! I've just about had enough of it this week. Too many days in a row of sub-zero temps. We'll celebrate that you're getting precip though!

Happy 6WS!

We hope that the snowy Shasta will be covered with snow to help to mitigate (even if only a little bit) the massive drought in the Golden State. Lets hope for fewer sunny shadows in your neighborhood...

Hi Kathe ~~ Lovely pictures this morning. You need the wet for stopping the fires there. We hear.

Our winter has been cold but not very wet. I do think though that our drought is being held off for a bit. The lake her is back to normal.

I have a picture of our 'snow' for the year posted this morning.

I have to say that the road looks more than a little treacherous! The rooster looks happy to be crowing indoors!

We've been cold but dry in Eastern WA, a drought is looming here too. Hope the mountains can keep this snow. Mostly it's just been cold here though. Enjoy your winter.

It's raining here. A nice soaking rain. Excellent. We are thrilled that we finally have winter.

Have a fabulous day honey. Scritches to the baby. ♥♥♥

Snow!!
Congratulations on finishing the quilts. Almost finished, but close enough.

Wow. Sounds like you have had a busy, creative time. Unbelievable that you are just getting winter. But then, in my peninsula world, we have had a rather scattered summer too. Only in recent days has it been consistent. Australia's northern areas have quite a different story.

It's amazing how dry it has been out west in some places. Glad to see some precipitation.

Thanks for playing 6WS!
