Today’s sewing project was made over the weekend while snowed in due to #Blizzard2016. Being snowed in brought back some really fun memories.
The last blizzard I can recall was in 1996, I was a senior in high school. Once the snow stopped falling my best friend and her cousin walked in the snow to get me so that I could stay at her house. I packed all the things I wanted to take with me in a very fancy piece of luggage………a trash bag….lol. Very fancy I know! I needed a bag that would protect my items and that could be dragged in the snow. We had to climb a very steep hill to get to her house. On and average, day it would take me 15-20 minutes to walk to my best friend’s house but in this 20+ inches + a few snowball fights and running into classmates it took us over 1.5 hours to get to her house.
That long and cold walk was ooooh so worth it! We had the best time. Listening to music, snacking on all sorts of deliciousness, playing games and laughing non-stop!
The blizzard of 2016 was great too……I got to spend time with my kids, sharing old stories, playing games, cooking, baking, watching movies, ton’s of laughs, chatting it up with friends on the phone and of course sewing.
For this sewing project, I worked with, Simplicity pattern 1072 view D. It was a very quick and easy sew. I did not make any alterations to the pattern I will definitely use this pattern again……maybe next time it will be for me……..instead of my youngest. Who was thrilled with her sweatshirt and loved her color blocking choices!
I would love to know…..what’s your favorite snowy memory ???
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and letting me reminisce, I greatly appreciate it!

Red and grey…so clever! And very beautiful. We haven’t gotten any snow in NY this Winter, besides a small dusting, but my favorite memory of a couple years ago is Marck eating snow. When he was about two years old, I would leave him in a fresh patch of snow, run off for a couple minutes, and when I came back all the snow in that area would be eaten:)
Being snowed in can be so cozy!!!! I love it…but not the shoveling and cleaning up lol! Anyway- I love your project!!! The color blocking is super cool-!
I agree the clean up is no fun at all! Thanks so much for dropping by!
I wondered if being snowed I would mean sewing time for those who didn’t lose power. The color blocking is nice. You must make one for yourself.
I was very happy and thankful to not lose power. Thank you and hopefully I will get around to making one for myself soon!
Love the memories!
Thank you. ☺
Hahaha! I enjoyed reading about your childhood memory.
I live in a country that’s warm all year, I hope you are coping fine with the bad weather? It’s nice how you made the most of it by spending quality time with your kiddies. Having a positive mindset is wonderful. 🙂
You did great with this sewing project, I love the colour blocking detail, red is one of my favourite colours.
Enjoy the rest of the week.
Be thankful for that warm weather. The snow is beautiful to look at and play in…..until you have to shovel 25 inches of it….lol. I was surprised my youngest chose red. It’s been my favorite color since, I was 5 and she has despised the color until picking her fabric’s for this shirt 😉.
I enjoy spending time with my girls….they keep me laughing and keep me young…lol!
Thank you for the kind word. Enjoy the remainder of your week!
Thank you for following me and I love how creative you are and the wonderful posts. I’ll be back to read more of it!!
Thank you so much for your kinds words! You’re quite welcome. I love the great tips that you share on various and interesting topic’s. I look forward to seeing more of your work. Happy Blogging!!
Great story! I love being snowed in – it happens so rarely. I celebrate with a pot of chili or soup, a summer sewing project and a jigsaw puzzle 🙂
Thank you and I enjoy being snowed in too! It gives you a chance to do so many of things, you ordinarily don’t get around to doing!
