Snowflake Art

I found out that cutting snowflakes out of fabric is much tougher than cutting them out of paper. Here is a backwards progression of my snowflake art w/ fabric. (Backwards because I never remember that with blogger you post the last picture first... and I'm a little thick about this posting stuff still... ) Any way the first pic here is my finished snowflake piece, beads and all.
Size you ask... it's 5 1/2" diameter.
The next picture was when I had most the black embroidery done, and was to the point of asking myself "what next?".
And below is the cutout fabric snowflake on top of black felt.

This all left me amazed at those Hawaiian quilts with the intricate designs appliqued on the fabric - like how do they do that?!!!
Snow update: It's a comin' down!
Make those snowflakes!

Let it snow let it snow let it snow!
Oh the weather outside is sunny,
and that just isn't funny,
We need to see some cold stuff,
til we can say "that's enough!"
So... let is snow let it snow let it snow!
Do I hear any AMENs?!!!
Is there anyone out there in blog land that wants it to snow???
Any skiers, snowboarders, snowmobilers?
Okay... how about anyone who just likes snowflakes?
If so... cut out a paper snowflake and post it on your blog!
If we can get enough snow in blog-land... maybe my dreams will come true...
Check out this link to real snowflakes!

Postcard #3

Making these postcards has been quite fun, if any of you fabric artists or collage artists haven't done an art postcard yet - why not? It's a must! It is a good size to work with (4 x 6) and the piece is very stable when done. Try it & enjoy!

It's been a sunny Sunday - extremely nice for November!

...and on the back side

In case anyone is wondering what the other side of a fabric art postcard looks like...
I use card stock - I've seen some with fabric on the back, and I've seen some real pretty hand drawn ones with the card stock too.
