Spring Break in Oregon...singing in the hail!

What a wild week around our house...snow, hail, rain, sun, more snow and ice and hail, wind...who knows what is next?? Never enough snow to cover the ground, but not far away in the mountains, it is very snowy!! Somehow it seems we are missing the fact that it is spring. So what do you when it is hailing...go singing in the hail!! These are just a few of the wild guys that regularly hang out at our house!
Even my flowers are taking a beating in the hail!!

The Happy 40th birthday quilt top is finished!! On Monday, it is off to my friend for a quick visit and then on Tuesday, it goes to the long arm quilter. I wish I could show you the back, but it doesn't photograph very well. It is a chocolate brown minky fabric, with a very rich paisley design.

This weekend, there is no sewing for me, as I am working on a paper for school :-( I am definitely not enjoying this one, as it just seems to not be coming together as easily as some of my other papers. Too bad it is not a quilting project that I could set aside to become a UFO!!

that was actually graupel that fell, not hail, since hail forms only in Cumulonimbi (thunder clouds). although, i think there were thunderstorms in the area, but not where you were. btw nice pictures!
