Well I've not done that much sewing this week - it is amazing how distracted you can get by a few inches of snow.
The kids however thought it was fantastic - I managed to persuade my 4yr old that we should wait until it got light before we went outside. We built a snowman (during the construction my 2yr old shouted "Frosty snowman carrot nose" repeatedly), had snowball fights and built a fort.
Monday my son's school was closed. I walked into town and bought snow shovels and a sledge. I pulled the kids around on the sledge for and hour and then we dug out the drive - I certainly got a cardio workout that day! After seeing Mum & Dad with the snow shovels the kids wanted a go too.
However I have managed to get a couple of things done. My batik quilt is bound and finished and was made good use of over the weekend. Gratuitous quilt in snow shot coming up!
I also chose fabric for the new baby quilt I'm making. It is the David bundle from Emma's Fabric Studio (plus some left over fabric from the Rainbow Charm swap - the orange at the bottom left).
This is the first time I've ordered from there and I was very impressed - Emma responded the same day about the best coordinating flannel to go with the bundle and when my parcel arrived there was a free extra fat quarter! I will definitely be ordering again in the future.
I'm hoping to get a bit more sewing done this weekend - but as I type it is snowing again so time will tell!
