Runway Snow Day: Part Deux
Every year, our school PTA hosts a spring Ice Cream Social and Auction to benefit the PTA. Teachers scoop the vanilla and add the toppings while the families in our school community enjoy some socializing followed by an opportunity to bid on many exciting gift baskets, amusement park outings, sporting equipment, special seats at school functions, principal for a day, outings with the teacher and many other great items.
This year I decided to sew a line of clothing for 18″ dolls like the American Girl Doll . As noted in many past posts I have plenty of fabric…if interested you can read about my addiction: here, here, here, and here. (I can’t believe there aren’t a few more “here”.)
I need to thank Mother Nature for the eight full snow days which provided me plenty fo time to design and sew the outfits…as well as Liberty Jane patterns for the patterns to sew the project. I am not paid to promote the company, however if you give them your email address you will receive one free pattern every Friday. I am not one for following patterns, but I made it work.
Anyway…the gavel has spoken…The auction was held last Friday evening. I was hoping the clothing line would fetch $50…instead it went for $250…woo hoo I am seeing a fancy field trip for my students in the future.
Without further ado… Project Snow Day: Part Deux

I completed several other outfits, but didn’t have time for all the photography…

I try to be upbeat at all times, but over the last several days it has been difficult so I need to address one more thing as many of my out of town friends, readers and family know where I live and have expessed concern.
First of all, we are safe. We live just north of the violence that has plagued the city over the last several days. I cried for many reasons more than just being frightened by what was happening. I know our world still has many problems to address. Sadly, some have chosen violence to express outrage. #1 Son-ster lives in the city and just south of the violence, he has been very cautious and has been in touch several times daily. I pray for peace and answers… if you have a moment please pray for all also.
