Another show quilt almost done.... Winter's End

My RAFA (Rochester Area Fiber Artists) group is getting ready to hang another show in Honeoye Falls.   The theme for this show is "Winter's End".  I have had a poem by Lilje Rogers that I have always wanted to interpret into fabric.....

"First the howling blizzard woke us,
Then the rain will come to soak us,
And now before the eye can focus....

This is it so far (you can tell it isn't done by the batting on the edges and the pins at the bottom.  This is pretty true to my original concept - all snow and just a "pop" to indicate the crocus!!   The poem is printed on organza overlay at the bottom - with appropriate credit given to the author.  

Almost done.....................  some more beading, a crystal or two, facing, sleeve and label.   Really - it is almost done!!!
