As I'm sure plenty of people across the midwest experienced, today was a SNOW DAY. We had a blizzard here, and broke the record for most snow accumulation in a 24 hour period for our town. It took Mr. Skooks a couple hours this morning to dig his way out of the driveway. I thought about taking the kids outside to play in the snow banks, but it was pretty stinkin cold out there so we stayed in.
No plows had come through our street yet (still haven't actually) so Mr. Skooks was told he didn't have to come in to work if he couldn't get out safely.
You know why?
Because Snow Day for Mr. Skooks = SEW day for me!
Except no. After he finished digging his way out of the driveway, a neighbor helped him dig his way through the street and since we're not far from a main road that WAS actually plowed, he actually DID go into work this afternoon.
So, no sewing for me today.
I'm jazzed up all over again, because I've just joined up with BEE Vintage . . . another little quilting bee featuring my favorite new fabric . . . vintage sheets. :) One of their members dropped out and they needed someone to take her place. Huzza!
My month is in April . . . which is keen (yes, that word is making a comeback in 2011) because my birthday is in April . . . which means I'll be SHOWERED WITH BEE BLOCKS ALL MONTH LONG. :D
SO excited. I'll keep you updated on the progress of this new bee (as well as my Vintage Sheet Freedom Bee which is still not over yet) as usual. I've got some scraps of sheets left over from the VSFB and I've acquired a few new ones on the side so I'm stocked up and ready to roll.
Anyone else do quilting bees? I still don't think of myself as a quilter, but my participation in quilting bees seems to indicate otherwise. ;)
