Honestly, I didn't plan it this way, but with all the record temperature lows lately, I think my One Flower Wednesday post this week will fit in nicely.
See, I've been experimenting with 1/2 inch hexies (usually mine are 1 inch). Here's one using Christmas fabric I've had around for a really long time.
They make the cutest little flowers. Here's one in progress and with a little perspective. (Although the photo doesn't do the color justice. Having so much trouble with my camera lately...awful color in the pic below.)But the real fun was turning them into Frosty Flakes. I got the pattern from Dawn over at As Sweet As Cinnamon and tried my hand. (I really must go post my frosty flakes on her Flikr stream...but I'm so tired I'm falling asleep...so maybe tomorrow.)(yawn!)
I haven't embroidered in years, so my first attempt is a bit rusty. But I thot it was an adorable idea to add embroidery and beads to create these snow flakes.
Here's my second Frosty Flake and I feel like my stitching is improving with time.
So there you have it. I'm thinking, instead of making a small wall hanging, I might just create a mug rug around each of these babies. We'll see how creative I can be.
Thanks for visiting and have a warm, safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving!
