Snowy Friday

It had begun to snow lightly last night as we returned up the "hill" from dinner at Colorado Boy Brewery, but we were thinking the storm would slide by without leaving much evidence here.
Au contraire! This morning we awoke to a winter wonderland of the white fluffy stuff and it's still coming down gently.
DH went out and ploughed our driveway and the nearest neighbor's a couple of hundred yards down the ridge, one of them works night shifts at the Montrose hospital and got stuck trying to get back up their driveway so DH went down and rescued her!
The birds are at the suet blocks, I think this is a red headed woodpecker?
You can see I have been sewing, working on the Celtic Solstice borders.
 Bonnie showed a pic of a quilt  by Barbara that had a piano key outer border rather than the green and it looked smashing so that's what I plan.
Even though her colors are different, I think it will set off the inner design of mine beautifully and I do have plenty of the fabrics yet.
 The Celtic Curlz design that Bonnie used to quilt hers was very effective and I ordered the panto, should have my borders all done by the time it arrives-couldn't you guess that panto is back ordered?!
We will be driving back to AZ tomorrow, the storm will be done and all the roads ploughed. It will be kind of slow on the passes between here and Cortez, but the roads should be packed snow.
