F&S Scrap Bag challenge

The challenge was to put scraps in a bag, and only take 15 min. Here's what I made. A three sided vessel, beads hanging from it.
It was a fun challenge and didn't put much of a dint in my scraps.

A snowy day up north, but a perfect day for spending in the studio working on projects. I like this kind of day. sigghhhh.

Fast Friday Challenge #16

Ahh, a new year and new outlook.
I have just completed my Challenge piece for the FFC group. Fire and Ice was our challenge. I got a bit carried a way and it is quite different from my norm. I use angelina and tinsel on the iceberg, just to make it shimmer and look real cold. I also used copper thread on the fire, unfortunately it doesn't show up that well.
I stretched the quilted piece on stretcher bars, first time and I quite like the look of it.
It feels good to be back in the groove after all the holiday stuff.
I invite your comments on this piece, any and all constructive criticism is appreciated.
Now I must get to work on my scrap bag challenge for the Fiber and Stitch group.

Happy New Year.
