Snow Day

Well this was a first.....  I got to have a snow day.
 With the storm system that has and is still going through our area there was nothing for me to do at work today sew it became a snow day for me. But I will be back at work in the morning, I am sure it will be a busy day.
But back to my snow day ..... as I was waiting to find out what I was going to do I worked on a couple more scrap blocks to add to the stack I had started on a while back. I got to my 30 block goal and put them together and even put the first border on. Next I want to do a scrappy border and then another darker border. Here's a pic ...... you know I can never throw out  a good scrap.
not the fanciest
 but I find that they get used the most

and when I do they become these ...... pet beds. I have been giving the beds to a friend that has a kennel sew I know that they get put to good use.

I have also started to work on another pattern that I hope to have ready for the next blog hop that I will be participating in. I'll keep you guessing on that one for now.
The grad gown is looking good , ready for a fitting and then the accents and it will be all done. Here is a peek of the back with the train bustled.

Well that's all for now I hope you all enjoyed your day to whether it was a snow day or not.
take care
