Barbara's Winter Block is Complete

Here's Barbara's (I thought it was Shelly...looked at the wrong address...edited to correct) tree...now covered in snow. Fitting considering the weather most of the country has had the past few days (weeks, months). And once this was completed...it was short notice to get the remaining seams done. You can see in the photo above that I almost forgot to take the shot as I was eager to get those seams started! 
 
And here is how the areas worked out...lot's of sparkle just like a wonder land of snow brings.
 
And more...
 
And finally, the total picture. 
 
Makes me almost wish we had loads of snow here too...but the cold temps have been enough. I'm good...but neighbors have burst water pipes which are no fun.

Kathy what an inspiration this block is to me personally. I live in snow country....Canada and you make it look so beautiful. I love the tree and how you took the time to make it all balance out in blues, silvers, and it is gorgeous.
Linda in Nova Scotia where it is colder than that gorgeous block.

Kathy that tree looks almost 3 dimensional. It actually looks like it is standing up...I love the block it has just the right balance...

I love the tree and, well, I love the whole block. Your work is always so elegant. As for snow, we've had over 6 feet since November and many thaws and freezes and this morning I woke up to a big leak from the ice dams on the roof. You probably really don't want snow!

The block is simply beautiful. I love the snow on the tree and the little gold nest. Well done!

Your block is beautiful. Looks so real. What kind of thread did you use to make the snow on the tree limbs?
