Not much, but enough to cancel schools in and around the area.
I remember during my years as a teacher in the Surry County School system the unexpected news in the morning that there would be no school. I and the kids during our unexpected "winter vacation" would sleep late, watch TV, play in the snow and make snow cream. Sometimes there would be a 1,000 piece puzzle to put together.
Ah, the fun!
Today, the cancellation of school, also keep the shop closed. Our policy is no school, no classes as well as the shop being closed! So I had another type of unexpected fun day ahead of me.
I used my time wisely. I stitched Block one "love" by Gail Pan Designs. This is the first of nine (I think) blocks she is creating for her BOM called "A Christmas Wish". Of course I am changing the colors. I plan to do all blocks in red. Here's hoping it will work, time will tell.
Another part of the day I worked on a "Speedy Stars Quilt" using the Fun & Done! Quilting method.
This is another quilt-as-you go method. No hand work, all machine. I will be teaching this method in the next quarter of classes at Sew Original. I'm only making a table top size sample of this quilt. The shop is so limited in its display space, I decided to keep it small. Students will be able to complete their quilt in crib, lap or twin size.
Tomorrow I hope to get this project completed.
(And a few other things too!)
