On Saturday, Virginia finally got a real day of snow. Of course, it was a Saturday, so no “Snow Day”, but I was still very content to hide away and steal an entire day to myself. Snow light is my favorite: its diffuse brightness transforms my sewing room into a magical place.
There was so much snow. It “poured” snow all day long; the sky was densely filled with flakes from 10am until after dark, and we ended up with over 7 inches. I couldn’t help but sit and stare out the window for moments at a time, transfixed by the deluge of white. Nothing beats watching the snow from a cozy perch.
My completed project from Saturday’s marathon was a cushion for the ottoman on my balcony, to match the patio cushions. Perfect timing, right? Doesn’t everyone think about their patio set when it’s 25F and snowing? But I’m very happy to have finally completed that project. One less piece of fabric in the closet!
I’m making progress on my striped boatneck tee copy. I finished a second muslin from the gray fabric… it’s still running a bit small, but I think I can improvise well enough from here to start cutting into the Real Stuff, above. I hadn’t even realized I had a navy-and-white striped knit in my stash until I did a bit of fabric organizing (snow days are so productive!) and hopefully it will be perfect.
What are you working on this week? Do you get as excited as I do about snow sewing?
