Our winter has brought us a lot of snow already . And a lot of really cold days and nights. But I have found a way to "play in the snow" and not get frozen!
|The late morning temperature was 3.7 degrees F|
I made the January project, a snowman mini wallhanging, from the book,
" A Year of Paper Piecing"
12 Sensational Seasonal Designs by Beverly A. Maxvill
|Book available at Amazon.com|
|Sections coming together on the paper pieced block|
|The block before adding embroidery and the sashing|
I decided to use the black and white chunky checks as the sash. (Faye Burges for Marcus Fabrics from my stash.)
|January's Snowman mini wallhanging design by Beverly A. Maxvill|
|Embroidery touches : scarf fringe, coal for eyes and mouth, Cardinal feet and eye|
|Musical note fabric for the bird house|
|I added pockets in the corners , for hanging with a little dowel rod. I pieced these pockets with scraps left from making the block. I smile when I see these pieces- the carrot nose piece and the grass!|
|Let it snow.... in my fabric stash!|
