Snow Day = Sewing Day!!!

Ok, I'm sure some of you may not be nearly as excited, but this is my first of the year.  It's been a weird winter here in Michigan, I think Mother Nature accidentally delivered all of our winter snow to D.C.  In the last 2 days.  We've got about 8-10", so just enough to make the back roads and subdivisions too bad for school buses.  Since the monster order is done and delivered, I'm free and clear to sew "fun stuff" today!
So, what's on the "To Do" list?
1. Finish the "Pretty in Pink" Dress for Little Miss Princess. She needs it for school tomorrow (Fancy Nancy Valentine's Party, don't ya know!), so a little embellishment, and it's finished.
2. Finish the leopard print blouse, thanks to all of you for setting me straight and not wadding it!  It needs a sleeve and some eyelets (which I grabbed at Joann's yesterday before the storm hit in a moment of pre-planning)
3. Whip up a little black knit shrug for Little Miss Princess.  The dress (see #1) is sleeveless, so the arms need to be covered tomorrow!
4. (Do I dare dream of a #4????) After we go outside a have a snowball fight/go sledding/make a snowman, I'd love to make a black pencil skirt to go with the new blouse.  Again, thanks to all of you for encouraging me with comments like "Yowza. Do it!" and "Watch out, Momma!".  DH thanks you, too...

I'll report back tonight, and we'll see how I did.  Hope everyone has a cozy (productive) day in the sewing studio!!!

I "took" a snow day today. I told my boss yesterday if it was bad I was taking vacation. We got about 10-12 inches here not including the blowing. I'm going to finish up a sweater dress then maybe start on a shirtdress. Then...snowblow :-(

We have wahwt-500 schools closed today? Where I live, it's open--no buildings to serve as a snow fence, so we had some awesome drifts around the house. A young man knocked on the door, hiring himself out for snow shoveling. That made my day!
