Snow Day Sewing 2013 Cindy Grisdela

I wanted to post this yesterday, but the day got away from me, as snow days sometimes do! It was the first serious snowfall in the new studio and I had a great time stitching while watching the big fat flakes fall.

We didn’t get the 4-8 inches that the weather guys were calling for–more like 2-3 inches– but that’s probably for the best. It was great to watch the snow fall for a day and today it’s all gone!

I finished a pillow commission, delivered it today and met with another couple who are interested in pillows to complement a special piece of art in their home. It was a great day.

I’m also part of a fiber art exhibit called “Common Threads-Different Visions” with seven other artists at the Ratner Museum in Bethesda, MD April 3-28 and I’ll be at the Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival in Reston, VA May 18-19. Mark your calendars!
