Snow and Sew

You are supposed to be doing English!!!!
But Mom!!!!
School got interrupted today for sure!
But I am just as big a kid, because I was just as easily distracted.

It sounds so nice and quiet out there. Mutes the sound of the 27 fender benders that were reported in our town alone!! Stay home everyone and enjoy.
And sew!!
I have managed to get a little bit done. The whole family has been sick for the last two weeks, so it has been a slow sew! I finished another scrappy star block from Terry's Treasures last SAL and I have a pile started for another one and a pile started for her current SAL.

 I have also started working on this wool felt project for Di's 2013 Challenge. New things are good for you! This is my first wool project. Well unless you count the jacket I made about 30 years ago. Last time I ever tried to match plaids on a piece of clothing since I wasn't planning on ever getting rid of my "curious" kitties.

So, I was wishing we would get snowed in so that I could just stay in and stare out the window and sew. No such luck--the sun is coming out tomorrow and the warm temperatures are going to start again. Wait, you can sew quite nicely when the sun is shining!!!
OK, no excuses--I must sew!
Hope everyone is tucked inside and safe if you are in this winter storm.

I love your orange star block! And your little candle mat is so cute! I've only ever made a wool pincushion, but I'd love to make a few more things one of these days! :0)
