I had fun doing it and I like the turnout, but I would change things if I did another one. I should use my sketchbook and sample skills better. My City and Guilds teacher would be appalled if she knew I wasn't keeping up with my sketchbook. Oh well, my loss I guess.
Snuck in an hour of sewing before the boys come home. So, made a few snowflakes for my winter wall hanging.
I have run out of both backgrounds. I know they look the same, but one has silver stars, which I really like. Looked online for more, but can't remember where I got it from to begin with. Not sure what color I will make the letters in. Am thinking about something brighter. I'm scared to use the red I have. It might look like blood or something. Green seems too dark. Any suggestions from you? Please make some as I am having a mental block. All the Christmas quilts I have ever done did not include blue and silver, but I have had this fabric for a few years and wanted to use it.....now what will go with it?

My attention span must be getting shorter with old (er) age. I have 2 queen size quilt tops partially finished in my basket and oh, I don't know, maybe 5 or 6 wallhanging size tops in there as well. The projects I am more likely to finish are small mini quilts or postcard size quilts. I have way more fun in the designing process than any other except of course finishing the dang things.
This is a picture of a mini wall hanging I did last summer. I wanted to make it look like a framed picture with a white matboard and black frame......well, I like it ok.
Here is a close up.
So, will I be able to finish Tonya's Winter class? I am hoping to, but will not promise anything. I am so glad she has tutorials to follow or I would really be lost.
Back to the housework and dreaming the impossible (quilt) dream.
