Sunny Winter Day and Giveaway

Hello Everyone,  
What do you do when the air is crisp, the sun is shining and there is still snow on the ground?

My friend, Myra answered that question with 'Do you want to take a ride to Ithaca?' My response was, "Absolutely!" I knew that we were off to Quilters Corner.

Quilters Corner was featured in the Fall/Winter 2010 issue of Better Homes and Gardens Quilt Sampler.

Myra picked me up and off to Ithaca we went! After driving for about an hour and a half we had arrived. We went into the store and were warmly greeted. Myra and I looked around, exclaiming, 'Oh wow look at this!' 'I just love this shop!' 'I don't know about you but I'm starving.' 'Okay, lets get some lunch.'
We asked the owners where a good place for lunch. Without  hesitation the answer was Ithaca Bakery.
We walked over a block and down two and we came to Ithaca Bakery
We were not disappointed. Lunch was really good. But we needed to get back to business.

Quilters Corner is full of friendly faces. Everyone just loves this bright and cheery quilt shop.

On a sunny winter day I love to go for a walk out in the nature. The wintry scenery is so beautiful, and after the long dark period it you can feel how your body comes alive in the war sunshine :)

If I am home for a sunny winter day I like to sit near a big window in my house and quilt with quiet music on.

Since I am a snow bird (Florida) I love sitting in my quilting room and just seeing the sunshine and feeling the warmth through the window after the Christmas Holidays in Rochester.

On a sunny winter day I love to start the day with a walk and let the fresh air invigorate me!! Then spend some time in front of my sewing machine before making dinner.
