The Best Kind of Snow Day

We haven't had nearly as much snow as many others have, but we've had more than what is normal for this area.  Yesterday and today it snowed in the morning, didn't stick to the roads, made everything pretty and was melted by lunch time.  That's the best kind of snow day!  I'm really glad we got out and enjoyed the beautiful spring like weekend when we did though, because it's really cold again.

While Shylee was here that weekend, we talked about making her a new apron since the last one I made her is too small.  We settled on the fun candy, cupcake, and ice cream cone fabric with the pink fabric for the ties and pockets.  It was so nice to have the fabric where I could see it and not have to open bag after bag to find what we wanted!  So the pieces are cut out and I should have it finished in a couple of days.  She also asked me to make a baby doll blanket AND teach her how to sew!  I'm one happy Grandma!

I hope you're having a great week!

  1. Yes, I could possibly deal w/that kind of snow day. It's the ones everyone's been having that I cringe at remembering. Oh, I thought of you the other day when I heard Bon Jovi on the radio! :-) He still floats my boat, too!!

  2. What cute apron fabric!! I'm so happy that "bonding with Shylee" was on your gratitude list this week.

  3. That does sound like a perfect snow day!
    And how sweet that Shylee wants you to make her new things and learn how to sew :)

  4. Oh.My.Gosh. I would be so delighted if my Grand was the least bit interested in learning to sew. You are one lucky Grandma, indeed. Enjoy!!

  5. I wish I could send you some of my snow! The fabric is adorable. It will make the cutest apron!

  6. What sweet fabric. Shylee will look adorable in it. And how wonderful that she is interested in learning to sew, I'm sure you will be a great teacher as well as being a fantastic grandmother. ;)
