First day of Autumn.......what?.....wait....I wasn't done with Summer yet!
Don't get me wrong... Autumn is a lovely time of year....but the trouble with Autumn is, that Winter comes fast on its heels......and I do NOT like Winter!

This thinking inspired me to create a new snowflake.

here is the drawing I did on one section of the paper in preparation for the cutting.

 Staples hold the 12 layers firmly in place

To get the points of my scissors into small areas I usually use a hole punch, but these are some pretty small areas, far too small for a hole punch, so I used the tip of an awl to make holes. ( a piece of cork tile allows the awl to sink in but protects my table surface)

This is how it looked once the cutting was done but before I unfolded the layers of paper.

Colouring Page 002

I can hardly believe it....but it has been about 2 months since I last threaded a needle.....there has simply been no textile "anything" happening around here lately.
But since I did not want to ignore my blog completely....I thought I would post another free colouring page.
