    Thanks Suzy! NYC is a mess but I am okay. The storm has created tremendous damage.
    The November theme is perfect for me. I have a true Bonus Baby! December, thinking about it!

    Dotty-Have been watching as the storm takes a bite out of the eastern coast......just looked at a pic of the subway in NY, and it was scary. It's good to know you are safe and tucked in. Take care. Linny

    OK, so I am a little late but here is my September challenge with a little bit of gold. I couldn't show it until the winners of the October Mini Quilt Contest was announced because I knew I was going to enter my first ever 'contest'. [Not expecting to win, mind you, but just for fun!] I first made one for my Mom with just a few pumpkins in it and decided to add more for the one that is hanging in my living room. It is my original design.

    Gorgeous work. A few of those 'realistic' pumpkins took some bleach? I think they are great and your machine quilting in gold and lovely flat even border put many of my hurried projects to shame.......

    Hi Suzie, the white pumpkins are the back of the quilt. I loved the way it turned out. If I had used the tan thread in the bobbin instead of the green, the stems on the back would have been more muted. Thank you for your compliment on my border. This is the first time I have cut my border fabric 2" instead of 2.5" and glue basted it all the way. THAT will be my new tried and true way to do it. Elmer's washable school glue works so well.

    Life is a bit strange for many people this season.... the holidays race towards us and storms and upheavals of varying sorts are creating more demands on some of our members us than usual. If you are anything like me one of my greatest sanity savers is to create something. So here we have November and I am going to throw in December as well so that you can all get into your planning and creating at a breakneck but artistic pace.
    -----------------------------

    November Challenge
    We have all had points in our lives when something happened and we were much the worse off because of it......but then...you looked around and took advantage of opportunities presented and a bad situation resolved into an unexpected but much better life than you anticipated. How wonderful!

    Opps! Unplanned pregnancy? But got to raise a fantastic child. Flooded house? Better house & life in new community. Major illness? Leads to a new satisfying career...etc.

    Can you portray one of these occurrences from your life in a fabric art piece?



    December Challenge
    If you are like most of us you've got the Xmas projects planned. But how about using some of your old tried out techniques in a new way to make your gifts more 'arty'? Just a little more thought on a project might take it to a new level, sometimes without any extra work. I know...you'll be tempted to maybe go a bit crazy and for a few projects that is OK, so enjoy! But for most goodies you might find that just a few arty 'upgrades' on what you have planned are really satisfying. (Take photos for us)

    -----------------------

    I look forward to seeing the projects populate the board here. We all need inspiration as we get busy so I hope you take a few minutes to share, motivate and expand opportunities for us all.

    Holiday hugs to all!
    Here it is Judy!
