There is a snowball fight at Crazy Quilting International, and living in Southeast Mississippi, the only way I’m likely to see a snowball is to join in this friendly swap.
A couple or so weeks ago I received this snowball from Hollie. I neglected to post a picture of it when it first arrived, so it’s a really good thing these snowballs are stable, and they don’t melt! :) She and I swapped snowballs with an Under The Sea theme. I love the creative under water creatures and bright colors Hollie used in this seascape. I’ve got to take the time to learn the drizzle stitch she used. It creates such a cool 3D effect. Hollie left a generous margin so I could trim her snowball to the size I collect. (Her picture was so clear I snagged it and used it…thank you for the use of your picture of my snowball, Hollie. I hope you don’t mind me using it.)
Hollie received this snowball from me…
Yesterday I received a beautiful, girly-girl snowball created by Nicki Lee. It’s made in a garden theme and features her hand-dyed lace motifs. Nicki Lee’s snowball fits me to a “t”. I love the colors and lovely laces she used. I have not fulfilled my end of this swap yet…but I will. :)
Finally, I am sharing the first of the hearts I made for the heart swap hosted by Crazy Quilting for Newbies. I decided to embellish it using one color of floss, some beads for a bit of bling and a few buttons. I kept it simple.
I’m still working on the green heart I constructed and will share it when it is finished. I’ve enjoyed working on the hearts so much, I might even make another one before the mailing deadline. I appreciate you looking and hope you will leave a comment to let me know you were here. I welcome your feedback.
Until next time…
