Last day to enter my celebration giveaway. Enter here.

 

Hello everyone!

 

How is your new year going so far?

 

I'm trying to get back into running (been soaked twice!) and eat healthier (took 4 days to get through a sweet potato & carrot salad...... yawn!).

 

I'm a little behind in blogging about my January magazine commissions, so I'd better get a shimmy on!

This is 'Snow Stars', my quilty ballad to the wintery wonder of snow!

 

We don't often get significant snow here, and I have a paradoxical relationship with it when it does show up!  The romantic in me loves the peaceful stillness of a virginal snow fall, but the damp practicalities of travelling and trying to do life in it, well it's ....... trying!

I've represented these stark contrasts in Snow Stars by using Essex Yarn Dyed Linen (Denim) as the background, allowing the low volume stars to pop out.

The half square triangle technique for making the blocks  means you get 2 identical star blocks at a time!

A friend of mine quilted Snow Stars on her frame, using the perfect snowflake pantograph.

Isn't it perfect!  And trusty Ikea 'Numbers' on the back completes my 'Ode to Snow'!
