SNOW DAY ...SEW DAY
A snowy day here in Minnesota and we are staying out of the elements. It was the perfect excuse to clean up the cutting table and get to work on a set of jumpers for E & A. It's a blessing to have these two little granddaughters so close by. I have had the fabric for a while but had misplaced the pattern I planned to use so the project has been on the to do list. Luckily, I made it to Jo Ann Fabric during the latest pattern sale and picked up a couple simple ones so I could get the project underway. With the snow today it was the perfect excuse to get going. Because I had the fabric before the pattern I did not have quite enough fabric for 2 jumpers but by putting a seam at the center back of the larger size I made do with what I had. The fabric is a thin wale corduroy so I had to take the nap into account or I might have been able to avoid the extra seam. I added the rickrack as an afterthought as it was in the pile of trims and matched perfectly. The second one is cut and ready to sew but I better cook supper now as I am sure the hubby will be hungry when he gets in from blowing snow.
