We started this morning with rain, but by 10 AM it turned to a heavy sticky snow ... and less than an hour later the schools closed early and the county pretty much shut down. While my back feels better than the past two days, I got a nice little headache until after lunch ... way too late (snow-wise) to scoot out and get a couple patterns from my books copied to life size ... or buy a pair of decent wire cutter thingies to cut my heavy duty cable ties down to the right size.
I did get a bit done even with hubby and son bopping around the house: First I took off 3/4 inch from the back panels. The pattern allows for a 5/8 inch seam allowance in CB, but I want enough of a gap just in case I lose a little weight. Then I did a test to see how well the cable ties fit under my zipper foot. Success!
