During my appointment with the hand doctor earlier this week, I was told no cross-country skiing this year. This was disappointing, but not a total surprise given the broken wrist that happened the beginning of January.
Since I can't enjoy the snow outdoors, I decided to focus on making snowflakes that could be quilted. I've been playing in Art and Stitch, my digital quilting software, and have come up with a method to make lots of snowflakes.
These snowflakes are based on the paper snowflake method we all probably tried in grade school. The following video demonstrates how I made one of these snowflakes.
Art and Stitch Snowflake Exchange
Once you have completed the design, label it with your name and save the file in the ANS format. Send me the file at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will create a members only page on my website and set you up with access to this page. All Art and Stitch files received will be posted to the page. As a member of this private page, you will be able to download any of the submitted ANS files. Only those who have contributed a snowflake will be allowed access to the page.
I received a question on the members only feature. When I receive your submission, I will set you up as a member using your current e-mail address. You will receive an email asking you to set a personal password for the site. I will link your email address with the private page. You will need to log in on my site to be able to access the private page. Membership is only required for the private pages.
Due date is February 7. I'm looking forward with great anticipation to seeing all your snowflakes.
Feel free to post questions in the comment section. I will do my best to respond.
And the Winner is......
