|Note the lack of snow on neighbouring mountains. The eastern USA has had a very mild winter so far and not much snow|
|Snow making has featured heavily this year|
|Not exactly sure it is possible to look glamourous in a helmet?|
|Breathtakingly fantastic views and US half term is a week later than ours this year therefore slopes not crowded|
|Yes, there is a mountain in there somewhere|
|Eat your hearts out Alps, Dolomites etc. Where are your quilt shops?|
I didn't think I would be able to get to a Jo-Anns this trip so tried to make an order online and have it delivered to the hotel. It doesn't work as they will only deliver to the address that is registered to your credit card. So I sent them an email, asking what I could do if I wanted to order online as I couldn't get to a Jo-Anns store.
Here is the ingenious reply from the lovely Mary:
"I suggest visiting a local Jo-Anns store and purchasing a gift card. You can use this gift card to place an online order."
I predict a bright future for Mary at Jo-Anns.
Anyway, as luck would have it, we spent a night near a Jo-Anns after skiing so I did get to visit one. And what did I discover in the discounted section?
Yup, discounted Denyse Schmidt. It's in Portland, Maine Jo-Anns if anyone is passing. But more importantly I got these:
Cost me an absolute fortune if I buy in the UK. In Jo-Anns, $31.99 for a pack of five.
See those Denyse Schmidt fabrics? They are half yard cuts. I'm going to make them quarter yard cuts and send a set to one of you. You can leave one random comment if you already follow. For a second bonus comment (and I am completely and unashamedly copying this one from Kristie because I think it is such a fun question) have a guess in which US city I spent the first part of my honeymoon some 19 years ago. (Edited to add: and if you get that one right I'll throw in some bonus fabric too...as of comment number 13 no one has got it right!)
Givewaway stays open till next Saturday 25 Feb after which time I'll use Mr Random Number Generator.
