yes, we have some snow

 As I left the house on Monday morning, this scene greeted me. I love to see the pristine snow, waiting for feet to crunch and mark it. We seldom get any snow to speak of, so it was lovely to see this as I went out.

Already the mornings lighten rapidly so that after my short journey to work, the day had really come, and the snow had stopped falling, but the birches managed to be a little picturesque.

 Snow did fall at intervals during the day, and is falling now, on Wednesday, but it has almost gone, even whilst still falling.
 And, not too surprising that most of the afternoons appointments got cancelled.  Even though most of the snow vanished - like snow off a dyke!

So, this is what I have been working on in my spare time.  I had some Salt air Charms, and was wracking my brain to use them as economically as possible- that's right, I am stingy with my fabric- and finally decided to go with a sort of simplified Arkansas Crossroad, and yes there are more of these in my future, as I love the effect of using the patterned fabric for the 'road' . So I am now messing with layouts. It seems as you start to lay it out, it is fine. And then you think, but that bit there is going to bug me , so you change it a little. And another little buggy bit appears. So you change a little more. And again.  Hmmm.

So, what do you do. keep changing bits until, well, when? Or just put it together as it appears, more or less randomly?  I am still not quite convinced by my layout, but how to say STOP? I don't know.

And then, I think borders will be required. But we are getting there.

I love snow too! I'm glad you got some. I really like that Arkansas Crossroad design. I spend forever arranging and re-arranging blocks. I like your colour spread in the pictures, especially the bottom one :)
