Design Wall Monday on a Snow Day

Well!  It is snowing.  Really snowing.  So much so that the schools were shut down at about 10 am this morning and we were able to send everyone home safely and here I am.

Here is my first Swoon block!  I am using scraps, fabric samples and some stash so my blocks will be a little bit scrappy and not quite following the suggested layout.  I think it is going to work splendidly.

We are hunkering down now with a major snow warning so I may just get a little extra sewing time in this week.  He he he!

I am going to link up with Judy's design wall Monday!

Have a super lovely day!  Think of us shoveling.  This is fairly unusual for us on the southwest coast of Canada.  We don't typically get vast amounts of snow in the winter.


  1. Love the scrappy look Cathy, this is going to be great!

  2. Pretty block! Enjoy your snow day!

  3. I think your scrappy swoon looks great. Yay for your snow day and extra sewing time. Except for the part about the snow, I'm quite envious. :)

  4. Love your block! I too am using "what I have" but going for a little more "planned scrappy". I just hope they all play nice with each other when I'm finished.

  5. Beautiful. I've been resisting the swoon bug myself but after seeing your block I am very tempted:)
