Arnica Fire was made using raw edge appliqué', the stems are melted felt, and over the entire piece I put netting to make it look "hazy". As I looked out my kitchen window that day, it was very dark but the sun could be seen. It was just a strange feeling to know that it was ash and smoke from the Arnica Fire. What made it all the more strange was to know that my son Willie was on this fire, it was in Yellowstone Park several years ago. At the time I was trying hard to do the Fast Friday Challenges. And of course Willie and his crew, Lewis and Clark Hotshots, are always on my mind this time of year, so it just seemed natural to do a FFFC related to fire.
