Snow and flowers in Chama, NM

Last summer we spent a few days in Chama;  today’s news is that they have called out the National Guard to clear the snow and the roof of their only grocery store collasped this afternoon. 

It was June when we were there for the Outdoor Quilt Show.  The big draw for me were the  enties for the $100,000 quilt contest which were displayed in the banquet room of a cafe.  One of the enties was “Crazy for Flowers”, a crazy quilt by Allison Aller.  Allison’s blog is one of my favorites, and I just had to get up there to see it.    It was hanging at the entrance to the room, and I just stood there, blocking traffic, as I studied each detail.  It was absolutely fabulous.   You can poke around on her blog and find pictures.   Here’s one of my favorite parts:


We had about 4″ of snow last night and my back yard looks just about like the picture in the header.  That one was taken in 2006.
