It never fails.
I am always out of sync with the seasons. And it seems I can never finish a monthly project in the month I'm supposed to finish it.
The dream I had of finishing my January Crazy Quilt Journal Project by the end of February is dashed. And now I'm two months behind. *sigh*
Nothing to do, but to buck up and finish this piece and so...
I'm making snow on the first of March.
I finished the tree the way I wanted to and I really wanted to have the effect of snow nestled into the hollow of the tree and resting on the branches.
In the top right corner of my block, there's a piece of glitter dotted fabric that looks like snow...
I wanted to carry that snow down into the rest of the block as well.
Enter wool nibs.
I found a little bag of wool nibs at last year's Sheep and Wool festival so I bought them thinking they might come in handy for something.
And today they got their day in the sun...uhh...I mean, snow.
I took a little empty spritz bottle and filled it full of textile medium and spritzed it all over those wool nibs...then sprinkled all the nibs with glitter.
Now I'm waiting for my experiment to dry to see if it's going to work...
I've got my fingers crossed. This might be the only snow we see this year.
Maybe if it works, I should let Jack have a snow day. Wouldn't he love that.
A snow day in March...
