another heart challenge....


I am working backwards, this challenge was from week 11 and it required that you use part of a Christmas card or cards in it...I was working on my bulls eye quilt today (I finished all the blocks today ) and had some leftover that was all pieced , so I made a crazy quilt heart....the saying" Christmas is in the air" and the train are cut from one of last years Christmas cards. I gesso'd them to make them not so shiny and then sewed them on to the heart...My goal is to make a border of hearts in one of the bedrooms...I also want to use all kinds of techniques not just fabric. Tomorrow I am going to finish my quilt...I have a feeling we will be stuck in the house again..its like a darn blizzard out there...This is the NORTHWEST people it is supposed to be mild temperatures here...I am not used to having a white Christmas nor do I care to have one this year...just for the record.

That is so cute. I TOTALLY agree about the weather --- I'm SICK of being snowed and iced in. My DD missed all of the last week of school and we have freezing rain right now over an inch of ice/8+ inches of snow!! YUCK.

Merry Christmas. =)

The heart is awesome & I am sorry you dislike all the snow, I love it & I moved up here for snow. Well, I really wanted a yearly white Christmas. I even shoveled my neighbors walk today in the spirit of Christmas & then it snowed again and I am not sure she will even notice, but I tried!
