Spring is in the Air!

16" x 15"

This is the season which seems to take forever to get here, and then is over too soon! The spring was torn from an old school notebook and touched up with some green paint. The styrofoam balls were left over from last month's challenge, with fabric paint used for the buttons and carrot nose and some twigs for snowman arms. And while I started. this time, with a square, I framee it with some stuffed polar fleece like a frame cut from a big snowball.

Your quilt made me smile. It may be spring and 'in the air' but I think it's flying high overhead this year with winter just not wanting to leave.Your spring flying low just enough to knock off the snowman's head but not get rid of him is cute. Great job and re-use of materials.

This is so different Tobi.......not so much from your style, I guess, but definetely in the thinking......spring... in a nest with little snowmen, like that use of the spiral wire, too.

Tobi, I just laughed when I saw this.... after our long winter, a dying snowman is a delight to see! Great use of recycled stuff!
