Snow storm recks havoc on my shopping storm!

Well, today was the day to go to my first sewing meetup in New York City to the Garment District but, we got snow all afternoon. It has been rescheduled for Feburary. I was almost ready to brave the elements to get there, well anyway we will see what Feburary holds.

Happy New Year.

I had a great holiday season. Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years were celebrated just the way I wanted. Very quietly. Just myself , hubby & kids.

Thanks to my fellow blogger Wannasew, I found a sewing Meet-up group in my area. I will be going to the garment district in NYC. Check back for updates.

I have been sewing, just haven't had time to download pics yet.

Until next time.

Be Blessed
Stay Blessed
