Bottom line - I can at least sew a straight line (if no wine has been involved before or during) which brings me to this weekend's project. My kitchen window overlooking our woodlot usually has a valance of flowers which really do not fit the Season.
I wanted to make something that could stay up until March without too much guilt (you know, like the folks who leave Christmas lights up AND on).
I thought this material fit the bill (and cheap from JoAnnes).The right shade of red and white - though hard to tell on this dull day. As you can see we had snow over night...
The picture above my window is by Claudette Castonguay from Quebec City (but of course, how Canadian eh).
It is a combination of painting (background) and paper piecing (the three people) ... the snow flakes are painted on to the glass. Hubby and I went to Quebec City in February one year - LOTS of snow and cold - this picture reminds me how colourful and unique it was...just love it every year when I pull it out for the holidays. Enjoy. Jewels
