I ♥ the snow. It's just magical...
I took an early walk this morning to the local park and snapped these shots.
I was hoping to get fresher-than-fresh tracks, but people had been out the night before building various snow-things. Snow-men, snow-dogs, snow-unmentionables... even an igloo!
After the trip out I settled in for a nice quiet day at home. I finished a commission quilt, and then set about work on my mouthy stitches pouch. I wanted to make a mini swoon block for the pouch body, so of course I had to do a practice run just to see if it was even possible.
At a quarter size of the original, this baby is tiny!
It finishes at a mighty 6 inches square... and while it was very time consuming, it wasn't too difficult, per say...
There was a slight incident where my machine ate half of a HST (like literally munched down on the corner and dragged the whole thing under the throat plate), but other than that, I think I got away fairly scott free :-)
I'm gonna make this one into a mini in preparation for the Modern Mini Challenge I think, and unless my partner has any objections, its full steam ahead for the Swoon pouch!
