So if you’ve been watching the news at all – you’ve seen that

our area had a HUGE snow storm.   


Couldn’t say that with a straight face!


It was beautiful for about a day and then the slush and ice started in.



So what do I do when I’m stuck in the house with 4 boys …. and I mean STUCK!

Well, let’s see?



Replace the shower head –




Shoveling –  




Feed my third-born tubs of ice cream after his oral surgery –



Sewing of course, silly!


I have been DYING to make this pattern for as long as I could remember, but the pattern was in a size six… childrens.  Yeah, I’m small, but I’m not that small.  And I can change patterns, but in all reality, remaking a pattern from this small is essentially making an all new one.  So when I found this pattern from Burda I seriously did a happy dance.  I’m so excited – I’m making two!


Notice there was no cooking or cleaning in any of that!

I LOVE the snow.  I really, really do!

    I, too, find my sewing productivity goes through the roof when I’m stuck at home with my kids. Good luck with the jumper!

      It’s good to know I’m not the only one that goes a little stir crazy in a “crafty” way when I can’t get out! Of course, if it were warm out, the yard would have been redone twice over and a room or two repainted. Haha!

Any thoughts?
