SOS: Celebrating Winter

We are quickly chugging through the holiday season, but in the northern hemisphere we will technically be welcoming winter this week!

At Shopping Our Stash, we are coincidentally asking you to share a project that is inspired by winter, but not the holidays!  Think you can do it?  Of course you can!  Snow, snowflakes, cold weather, winter activities, winter foods and beverages...

Here are my wintry tags:







Supplies and notes:
  • The base library tags were Color-Bursted last week through Tim's plaid mini stencil
  • The focal image on each has been in my stash for almost a year... they were a clearance purchase after last winter from Cost Plus World Market.  I like how they are somewhat sheer-- you can see the plaid through them in bright light.
  • I typed the sentiments on an old catalog card and dipped them into my neglected Distress Paints... I feel like I haven't used these in a while.  "Bon hiver" means "good winter" in French.  Have you ever heard of the musician-turned-band Bon Iver?  They got their name from "bon hiver..." Look them up.  I'm fond of the first album, and once you read how and it came to be, you will be intrigued.
  • The yarn came from a booth at the quilt show back in August
See you ovet at Shopping Our Stash for some wintery inspiration!
