Portland is digging out from 30 inches of snow. The three snowed-in days found me at home with my wee back-up sewing machine, my serger (lugged it home) and one spool of light grey thread. We did not, luckily, lose electricity and so the sewing was on ! One project : a linen hat- kind of french sailor style. I cut a pattern from a roll of paper towling and made a prototype. Quite jaunty !
