Snowy Day...

We are getting a shot of Lake effect snow today. I suppose it's to be expected, after all it is December! It has just been so enjoyable to have had the delay in winter weather here. Just a couple weeks ago we were putting another coat of paint on our front porch!

I found some great links this AM! I can't remember if I'd ever heard of this one before, or if this was a first http://www.etsy.com/index.php it is for selling all things handmade or supplies! I found the link from http://sewgreenblog.blogspot.com/ THANKS!!! There were a bunch of things I already have my eye on. This looks like a great resource for ideas & supporting other crafters whose skill is beyond mine, or in areas I know nothing about!

One book that's going on my Christmas wish list is Fashion Sweatshirts. I love the idea of buying an unfabulous sweatshirt & then turning it into something fabulous! I have made one for the little Princess, however she has since outgrown it! All I did was add fake fur to the collar, cuffs & waist. So I am looking for some more inspiration... Of course I need another 3 projects...

Tonight I am walking, since I didn't last night (our school opens up to walkers in the evening as part of a wellness program). I also need to squeeze in some time in the sewing room. I have the reversable jacket to sew, one more bandana skirt, one ballarina skirt to figure out, a table runner to finish, quilt & bind, a snowman wall hanging to satin stitch, quilt & bind, 3 childrens aprons to sew, I should go & figure out something quick to make for Grandma & my God Mother...

Sew what am I doing sitting here! Off to the sewing room, wish I had a "Do Not Disturb" Sign!

Hi Lisa! Thanks for placing your pin in my map (and for the link!). I'll add you to the list just as soon as I write today's post (I'm a little behind).

FYI - I have very fond memories of a yellow sweatshirt my mother adorned for me when I was about seven. It was a school theme and had really great ABC 123 buttons and bows. I wore it ALL the time!
