Something that kind of ‘cracks us up’ down here in Oz, is the winter images of Christmas. If you know anything about the Southern Hemisphere, then you must be aware that we have the opposite seasons to everyone in the Northern Hemisphere . . . .
. . . so, their winter is our summer.
Which means we have no snow, no snowmen, no snowflakes, no sleds, no sleighs, no icicles, no knitted jumpers emblazened with reindeer.
Instead we have Santa Claus in shorts, singlet and thongs (you call them flip-flops) with a hat and a red nose (from sunburn not cold wind), LOTS of lights, masses of ‘lit’ stars, lots of papermade decorations and heaps of glittery baubles.
However – this year I really wanted to try something new. Hence my experimentation with cotton doilies, fabric stiffener and left over embellishments.
Here’s my progress in middle of the project
Yes! I am working on the floor
because I am in the middle of building a new craft table
(which has to be finished today, cause I have a class tomorrow).
And this is just one of the completed Snowflakes.
I hope you like.
I’ll put up a “How To” tutorial soon
