Monday was Christmas card day. All the cards were made up front, but it still took half a day to get everything glued, signed, stuffed and stamped although I have to admit I use my computer as much as possible to spare my hands.
I make small Christmas quilts for family and friends each year: the number varies from year to year depending how much time I am able to spare. You can check out some of my previous cards here.
I wanted to use my painting with fiber technique this year and put some simple shapes into good work. I still am quite taken with the process itself, watching the little bits and pieces transform from a happy mess into something totally different right before my eyes.
I wish I had taken pictures before I cut the two panels into pieces, I really did not want to, they looked so good, but here they are: “Cold winter’s day” 1-30
all different but yet the same
The title was very appropriate as we had our first winter storm here over the weekend. It was so freezing cold that we stayed indoors unless we really, really had to go out. Now most of the snow has rained away. Wonderful. All the chaos that comes from massive snowfalls with no White Christmas perks.
