My OMG for January is The Snow Dudes. I am altering it a bit, to suit my space and vision. I cut my background longer and more narrow which meant the snowflakes would need to be reduced to 1. I even changed out the snowflake for one I found online. I also changed the direction of the 2 HST blocks along the short side. My OCD wouldn’t allow them to stay as they were. LOL
My altered version
I used a dark blue background to simulate a dusky sky, like a cold winter’s early evening. Love how the red inner border plays off that deep blue. For their eyes I raided my button jar and came up with several sets. One of the little snowmen has deep blue eyes instead of coal black! Just need to layer and quilt it so I can get it bound and on my table. And who knows, we are due for snow this weekend, so just maybe the Snow Dudes can be joined by some real snowmen?
I have been working on the cowl choice, No Harm No Cowl. I am not 100% happy with my color choices, but I am just going to ride it out and finish it. Since this is going into a gift box for Christmas I am hoping it will take someone’s fancy. I think I am just going to put the items out and let my family pick. You never know what someone will love.
So, how are your challenges and goals going this month? Keeping up or barely treading water?
