Spring "Break"?

Friday the temperature was in the 70's. It was a beautiful day.
Saturday and today have been a different kind of beautiful. I think we got at least 6 inches of snow yesterday. Then a lot of it melted off. Yesterday afternoon the streets were clear.
Then sometime in the night it started again. I woke up to sleet beating against our bedroom windows. Our church services had been cancelled last night so I just ignored the sleet and went back to sleep. This morning I measured almost a foot of snow on my front porch. Here you see 8 inches in the flowerpot. Most of yesterday's had melted off that pot by last night.

Here is the bench on my front porch with 11 inches.
So....what next? I won't complain because it is so beautiful and I enjoy being inside watching it. But I will go ahead and pretend that we're really close to spring and Easter by hanging a spring quilt and displaying my Easter eggs.

Some of the eggs on the tree are hand painted from Slovakia. The brighter ones were decoupaged by my daughter Calista. I made the quilt last fall and Loretta Rogers quilted it.

Great quilt and I like the eggs too.
We had tons of snow too, some of it melted yesterday and hopefully the sun will come out today and take care of the rest.

Have a good week!

That is such a lovely quilt. I have some of that line of fabric but I have not seen the bird panel before. Very nice.
