snow days, plural

Do you remember being SOOOOOO excited
when you were in school and school was called off
because of bad snow conditions?

A couple of weeks ago there was 
a county-wide school snow day.
That afternoon, after the roads were partially cleared,
I invited my grand daughter over to play, and
I taught her how to play the way I do on a snow day - 
Snow Day = Sew Day,
and she pieced her first quilt.

Last week there was another snow day, 
(though it really was an ICE day)
so grand daughter came over again 
and she/we quilted her quilt
on the long-arm!
She helped me load it on the long-arm machine, 
chose her thread color, and ran the machine
(with my hand beside hers on the handle bars).
Now she wants more
Snow days - Sew days, too!

Here she is, a couple of weeks ago,
with her blocks laid out, 
concentrating on that quarter-inch:
I'm enjoying my snow days, plural.
Can you tell? :)

Hope you are getting some stitching in, too!


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit!
