.......Continuing Carol Sloan's show and tell......

Besides everything else she does......she paints! Carol shared a trick she better incorporate her image with the background......she uses a bit of the color (from the bird) and applies it with her background paint.....

Of course, she always takes things one step further.....did I say how clever she is?? Carol scanned the image, duplicated it, and printed it on fabric.... Sorry, I can't recall exactly what the fiber content was......but it was fairly thin and almost sheer. Can't wait to see what she does with it!

Carol is in a group that exchanges small triangle shape pieces that can be strung together to create banners..... Here's hers.....machine 'scribbling' (as she calls it).....filled in with paints.

She had a whole stack of these adorable little art the maker utilized a lot of embellishments.

And this maker obviously used sections from a linen table cloth or napkin to which she added her own touches. The theme of this exchange was winter white.....and boy do many parts of the country know about winter this year.

We've got 16 degrees this morning on our mountain....again it's snowing horizontally, and the wind is blowing so hard it's whistling! (And it's about 60 degrees in the house....the heat pumps used in houses here can not keep up in this cold weather). We are thankful for our gas fireplaces.....this is a good day to stay inside and sew. Hope you all can do the same wherever you are.

Thanks for hanging with me.....
