While we are inside, I am trying to keep my hands busy on a new bishop. I must admit that I had great plans for a cute green and white chevron bishop smocked dress. After fighting with my pleater yesterday, I am not sure how it will look in the end. I am not sure why, but sometimes my pleater has a mind of its own. Actually, most of the time it is O.E.(operator error). Despite all of my struggles, I managed to get the dress pleated. The smocking will be flowers and the dress will be sized for a 2 year old. The goal is for a 2 year old little girl to have something special to wear this Spring.
What do you do to get ready for days inside? Do you cut out a new pattern? Do you get some yarn for crochet? There are several things a "crafter" can do to avoid boredom. Mine would include the smocking, sewing, and crochet. So, when I get bored with my bishop pattern, I may find myself making a hat or scarf. Who knows? Post a comment below and let me know your favorite "snow day" activity.
Also, before I forget, I am running a special in my shop for the month of February. Here it is:
