SNOW day!

My school district called at 5:15 telling me school is cancelled for the day.  "We have about 6 inches on the ground so far,"  my husband the snow remover says.  But the snow is to still continue to accumulate until 9:00 this morning. I know that all the students and teachers are glad for some time off.

So that means a sewing day  ( maybe a little cooking and cleaning, too.).

O.K. I had a blast last night doing an art project for Valentine's Day with my grands.  I gave the 3 year old strips of colored paper ( reds, sparkles, pinks) and a pair of children's scissors. A little guidance and he was cutting away having a great time.  So the little guy ( 2 year old) was given the cards I had prepared with glue on the center of the heart. His job was to take the cuts from his brother and put them on the glue.  They both stayed at it for 45 minutes. Great job by the little guys! Now to send them to special loved ones.

First project up:

Finishing up the purple strings into blocks for my Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

I still need 6 more for my row for my Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

2nd project:

Cutting out some homespuns for the Square Dance Mystery  by From my Carolina Home.
My light is going to be black solid.


  1. We've had more than our share of snow days this year. I'm glad you were able to have a free day to sew. Your valentine card is so adorable!

  2. Love the art project with the grands. They stayed focused for quite a long time. Your purple strings look great.

  3. Hooray for a snow day! Great idea for a crafty project with your grands, too. I really like the blocks you're making - pretty for purple!

  4. Congrats! on a sew-y Snow Day. You made a lot of PURPLE progress for the RSC!

  5. Whoot Whoot - Snow day!!! LOVE those purple blocks!!

  6. A valentine to treasure! Your string blocks look terrific in purple.

  7. I think that snow days are so much more fun than hurricane days. Glad you were able to put yours to such good use.
