SNOW GUY came to be as a result of a quilt challenge in Sea Island Quilt guild in Beaufort, SC.  The rules: elements of H2O.  I received 1st place. Can you see ice, snow, rain, sleet steam from the hot chocolate and water?

I couched white thick thread to show layers of ice or hail or sleet with crystal bead shapes.  And of course lots of fun free motion quilting.

I used my embroidery machine to make his silly sign.

Of course hot chocolate with marshmallows.  I painted some square beads with Elmer's glue to look white.

  The steam is represented by flying geese.
