Look Familiar...please spring me to the correct blogger....

OHHHH me and my blog hopping...I saw this somewhere...LOL
even noted the photo but forgot to add her link....

I know it was a fellow blogger who shared her version
of a bed spring flower from another lady named Mary..
She was kind enough to share her tutorial..
Problem here is I am not sure sure who or where she is?

I picked up some coils , thought this would be an ideal
PIN CUSHION...but I have no idea who's blog this came from...

Look familiar?

I am out for the day, sew if you know where this came
from just spring me forward to her site please...

Keeping you in PINS and stitches.

There is something very spring about this Chloe

If you love spring, and I just know
it is coming, you may like
this Chloe begowned in her lilacs...
She looks like a hydgrangea plant...
don't you think...?
I wanted to do her hair in blonds..
but really red suited her in this dress better.

And besides Casey from Brockville
requested red and lilac combination.

I sent her this pic last night
and she was just beside herself
with the choice of colours...

So another Chloe is on her way...
I have the right tissue paper
to make her travel light
and she too will be smelling
of a light scent of baby's own..
And yes Casey, a bar is coming to you too...

She really was a delight to create.
I am thinking I really like LILAC
over PINK...mmmmmm

Keeping you in stitches

Snow art by a man with HEART

Artist Simon Beck must really love the cold weather! Along the frozen lakes of Savoie, France, he spends days plodding through the snow in raquettes (snowshoes), creating these sensational patterns of snow art. Working for 5-9 hours a day, each final piece is typically the size of three soccer fields! The geometric forms range in mathematical patterns and shapes that create stunning, sometimes 3D, designs when viewed from higher levels.
How long these magnificent geometric forms survive is completely dependent on the weather. Beck designs and redesigns the patterns as new snow falls, sometimes unable to finish a piece due to significant overnight accumulations. Interestingly enough, he said, 'The main reason for making them was because I can no longer run properly due to problems with my feet, so plodding about on level snow is the least painful way of getting exercise. Gradually, the reason has become photographing them, and I am considering buying a better camera.” Spectacular art for the sake of exercise!
