Summit Fever

Two fun adventures collided to create "Summit Fever"! I hiked Wadsworth State Park with my sister and a friend on a bitter cold morning. There was a lot of ice forming along the river and the waterfalls were beautiful. As part of my weekend walk series I wanted to try to create the feeling of ice on fabric. I worked through a number of techniques to get the feeling I was looking for which I'll go into in another post. The reason I mention it is because the fabric was perfect for the Summit Fever piece.

On the same weekend in another state my son summited Mt. Washington along with a couple of his buddies. It's the highest peak in New England and is known to have extreme weather conditions but I trust my son to be smart and to stay safe! Rob is writing about his outdoor winter adventures as part of an internship program with the New Hampshire State Park system - check it out: Hiking Mt. Washington State Park in Winter.

I created a pattern from a photo Rob took at the summit and combined it with my ice fabric and ended up with Summit Fever! Trying to achieve the feeling of cold, ice and snow on fabric is challenging. Have you tried any winter themed projects? Please share!
