    I just hope that we don't lose too many because of the intimidation factor If you're not comfy with the arty aspect do a block that represents you.

    Lara, I bet you are correct. Guess I just got a little whiny yesterday! all better now. Thank you for your encouragement.

    I challenge myself each month to try out new patterns or techniques on my little dolls quilts as I don't participate in classes at the local LQS so this is my way to learn (or a lot of time mess up) something new. You might be surprised to know that I am a very traditional quilter too, most of my quilts are very geometrically designed. But I push myself continually to 'take a big step outside the box' - no wonder my head hurts a lot
    Lynnie, thank you for reminding me of why I started this swap. It forces me to stretch outside my comfort zone. I think my head must have been hurting yesterday....lol! This is why I love this group.....such encouragement! I can't step too far outside my box yet...baby steps, baby steps.

    Cognito sounds like a Superhero -- like Magneto -- but with super thinking/being powers!!!
    Darn! That would make one swell self-portrait ... hint hint hint
