Gift, Bead Journal Project, snow



See what Ati from Unlimited Textiles sent me. It's done with felting and hand stitching and is wonderful. Very appropriate for our weather this year too. Normally, the Pacific NW USA has very little snow, but this past week the weather has been much more like Montana where I went to high school and college.
This is the view out my patio door! The stairs to the deck are slick, so I'm walking the dog on leash which is just a good excuse to play in the snow. Deer tracks and rabbits tracks are everywhere. Our chickens won't come out of the coop and need to have new water every several hours when the other bowl freezes.


Here is December's Bead Journal Project quilt done with sequins attached by the back stitched beads.

I should be taking pictures of the snow around here, too. We got lots and lots like you! Your December page is really nice - I love the color and the sequins, too. The felted piece is a nice gift - Happy Holidays.

Yes, I know all about that snow... we've had well over a foot of it, and it's drifted to above my knees in places.... a week of it already and more in the forecast... Oh where, oh where is our Washington rain????

Love your December BJP with its sequins and it's beautiful, rich background fabric! Might you be willing to take and show some detail shots? I'd really like to see the lower half larger.

Merry (white) Christmas!
