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!
Until Next Time,
