The latest theme for the Cocorico Bee is "Let,s Hit the Slopes" requested by Krista.
I'm embarrassed to say I live in the Pacific NW in Seattle but I don't ski!! Yep, I can see the Olympics and Cascades from my neighborhood and the mountains are only a few hours away. I skied a few times as a little girl but never really liked it. I think it was the cold and my fear of falling and hurting myself. So.... when Krista requested her ski theme blocks, I had a super duper hard time coming up with something. My bee mates are so talented and set the bar really high. Meg made the most amazing ski boot, Amy made a skier - yes an actual person skiing! And Melinda made the cutest ski sweater you've ever seen!!
I visited the Swiss Alps years ago and thought a Swiss Ski Chalet would be fun to make.
This is what I came up with..................
I hope she likes it - it was fun to make.
Happy Sewing to you!
