    Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow....

    My DS and I got together at her house for a Sew Fun Weekend. Her DH was out of town so, we sewed, shopped, and giggled our way thru the weekend. I decided to try something I have not done before with FMQ. Now, even tho I like the way it turned out (sort of) there are things I will do differently the next time. I thought of making a table runner but did not like the high loft batting for that, so I turned it into a Christmas purse. The design goes all the way around the bag. DS bought some new Christmas ornaments and I filched one for a zipper pull... the bag isn't perfect, of course, but I like the technique and will try some more of this type of FMQ.

    Great idea. Much better than having another UFO staring you in the face. Well done.

    That is so pretty. How did you do the FMQ? Did you have a pencil sketch on the material or what? Just love it.

    I wouldn't exactly call it a technique. I cut the big tree shape out of paper and traced a couple of them onto fabric. I filled them with FMQ, then I cut the tree pattern down and traced a couple of smaller trees and filled them with FMQ. Then it was just a matter of making the swirling snow drifts. The bare trees were an afterthought, but they needed no tracing. Then I added stars to the background. It really was just a whim that grew.

    And I am very happy to say she is one of my younger sisters, and she is so talented I can't believe. I make buckeyes and I grow (out) she makes work of art on a whim that grew. Unbelievable!!!!
