As with three quarters of the country, I am in snow, lots of snow and cold, very cold. I love it! Yesterday I sat and watched The World at War , crocheted, drank coffee and had snow falling all day behind me in the grand window. It felt like a story book day, I didn’t even get out of my night clothes !
Oh how I cherish such a day!
I did make stew for dinner, seemed the perfect dish for a cold February first day. To bed late {for us}
snuggling down under all the quilts and woolen afghans made over the years.....oh I relished and was mindful of all this incredible coziness.
Today is a different story for me. The Broncos play this afternoon, { so glad the game is today! I’m tired of all the Superbowl build up, it’s only a game!}...anyways, we are having a wonderful dinner here with my youngest. So I have to get to the store for a few items.
Yes, we will make this afternoon another cozy time as we eat great food, great company as we tuck in for the game of the year!

The dress shirt I made for my son in Chicago. Took a sew along class at Mama Said Sew and loved it. I learned a lot and have started my second shirt. The other shirt is for my Pie Lady and is made from British fabric. Not feeling over the moon about the pattern, I took off the ruffles at the shoulders and am making a pocket for the front, a request from caitlin.
Sewing garments I was told last week is nothing but a puzzle using fabric! Do not look at the entire garment but only at each section. When done with one section move to the next. What a wonderful way for me to think since my time is limited and I spent an entire day in a chair yesterday.
 Hoping all a wonderful week-end and stay safe and warm.
Enjoy the snow!

The shirts are beautiful Eileen. The one you made for your son looks warm enough for Chicago weather. I love the fabric. Stay warm and I hope you get to keep crocheting.
