    I ALWAYS have sewing to do. And I can always bake for my husband. He is crazy for sweets. It is warm here and our grandkids are outside riding their new bikes. Sometimes we wish for snow, but then again....... Hope you find something fun to do soon.

    There is ALWAYS sewing to do! :O) Enjoy the chance to be snowbound -- before you know it, you'll be back in the rat race, wishing you had this time back again.

    No!! My close friend and neighbor is in California for 2 weeks...

    No baking I still have lots of Christmas goodies around and left overs to get used up.
    I did get some Christmas decorations down and stored some cleaning/laundry/ironing done, I guess I should enjoy the quiet for the rest of the day .

    I love watching movies when I'm snowed in. I haven't been able to get to any yet, however. But the week is young, and our street still has yet to be plowed.

    My kids would LOVE to be outside riding bikes right now. Of course they would be riding in the snow, with ice still under it :( Winter has only begun, but I'm soooo ready for it to be OVER.lol

    We spent three hours Christmas night playing a new card game. Got any cards or an old board game in the closet you haven't used in years? Backgammon, chess, ...?

    Sew would be my first choice, or bake/cook and freeze for the future?

    I have been in for 3 days and I am also getting cabin fever. I can get out if need be, but I will wait until roads are clear enough for me. I spent all morning cutting out quilt pieces and sewed one block only to decide I didn't want to do that quilt. So I started cutting out another one. Then I stopped cutting and practiced my FMQ. Then I decided I needed to rearrange my stash.....I'll do that tomorrow.

    If not sewing, there's always a closet to organize!

    I would love being snowed in. I guess I am not one to get cabin fever. I once stayed in with my kids for two weeks and loved every minute of it. As long as my DH brought in the groceries and we had electric and heat, I found plenty to do to keep busy.

    I'm from Louisiana: there's not many chances to get snowed in. But if I did--I'd sew and quilt, read a couple of books, chat on the phone with dil's, put away the ornaments, clean out my closet, wash bedsheets, watch Casablanca, Gone with the Wind and The Godfather, play board games with the kids (they would find a way to come here), and cook for 10 or so mouths. Need more ideas? ;-)

    I have been watching TV and falling asleep and missing most of the ends of the movies. I have also been stitching some.

    I am off for Christmas vacation (I refuse to say winter break)and have spent the last two days cleaning up the sewing area. I sorted, washed, folded, and even THREW OUT and made a pile for good will. I have put all of my ufo's in a tub (not as large as I thought it would be)for when I am really snowed in. I just have two tall plastic 'dressers' to sort through - they hold patterns and scraps and batting pieces and floss, and zippers and and and.....
    I will be posting a new swap January 1st, so I needed some organizational room!
