Slow day = Sew day

Despite the fact that the calendar read March 24 yesterday, it snowed ALL DAY LONG.  My kids had no school.  Many people chose to stay inside.  It was a slow day at the shop.

That didn't hurt my feelings one bit!  I used the slow time to chat with the knitters who showed up to stitch together (it would take more than a snowstorm to keep them away from a Knit Together Tuesday!), and I made a quilted wine tote for my brother for his birthday.  These things are seriously addicting to make!

Tomorrow, my mom is going with me to the wine shop to find a wine to go inside.  This might be my go-to gift for my wine-drinking friends this year!  I made one for my sister, too, using the same fabric I used for her double potholders that I made her for Christmas.

When I came home, dinner was ready (I love my crockpot!), so after eating, I settled down to watch a few episodes of Parenthood (I'm on Season 2), while I worked on my latest toothbrush rug.  That class continues to be one of the most popular at the shop.

Today, I'll be working on my knitting needle case, and then teaching the kiddos how to make their tote bags during the after school program.  It should be a good day!
