Snowy Saturday

We had a bit of a snow storm last night and I had to snow blow the driveway. By the time I was done I was covered in snow!  I did help the neighbor girl plow hers also because her parents are on vacation and they don't have a snow blower.  Yes, I was wearing bright, red sweat pants!!
Yesterday I worked for a bit on my skirt for the sew-a-long over on the noodlehead blog.
Next up is gathering the top and attaching the waistband.  I'm enjoying making clothing.  I haven't sewn clothing for years except to alter prom and homecoming dresses.

This is the view from my sewing machine.  Nosy me can look at the neighbors or in the summer I can look out at our lawn.
I was trying to not be creepy and take a picture of the neighbor's house.  It is for sale if anyone is looking!

Yesterday I started a hat for one of the trainers at my gym.  She has cancer and just lost her hair a bit ago.  I don't know this lady very well, but she comes to work everyday with a smile on her face and works with her clients.  She is even still teaching classes!!!  If I feel lazy and don't want to go to the gym, I think of her and how somedays she must feel awful but she is still there and smiling!!
I bought some Bebe yarn and am using this pattern: Edna Rose.  I hope she likes it.   It is knitting up quickly.  I rarely use acrylic yarn but this is nice and soft.

Hope you all have a great weekend with plenty of time for working on your projects.
Happy Crafting!!!
