    QuilterMomma - We'll be here. Looking forward to seeing some Neverland characters. Great idea. Maybe tease us with a few sketches before January?

    athenagwis - to me, that looks like #5 from Short Circuit. Now, he WAS a character. AM I right? Great choice.

    Looks like the creative juices are flowing. Way to go everyone.
    Working for a living interferes with fun, but it pays for it.

    Hehe he does look like that!! I loooooved those movies. Actually this is Wall-E. JenniKy inspired me to think Disney. Now I just have to get the right fabrics. trying to decide if I should stick with solids or use some patterns that almost read as solids.

    Cheers!

    Here I am ..... up for air (from the salt mines!!!

    Looks like you ladies have been busy busy busy!

    Great challenge W4Me ... you must have known about some of my "I want to's .... ".

    You can count me in too!! ... BTW ... mine will NOT be a scary sort!

    W4Me ... Franky really has come into being. Yes, Oct 2013 ... we'll see! My $ is on 10/13!!!!

    Jenniky ... Good job, pulling out a PUP. You've got the basics done, now to decide what's next!

    AthenaGwis ... Looks like we have another EQ player in our midst. I know nothing about the program, though admire what many of you are doing with it. Fabrics? I don't know the "character", though to me it's calling for batiks ... and some steely metallic fabric for the greys. Does that fit the character mold?

    Everyone Else ... come on and join me and commit to doing this character challenge. Then start thinking of who/which character and post who it'll be. And even if you aren't going to work on it for awhile, the sketching and ideas can start building ... and start the project stash!

    Mine will not be a scary one, I'm more than certain.
    I have a few ideas in mind ... and will let you know my decision when the moment comes!

    Here's to some more fun fun fun!!!!!!

    Sew many ideas ... just sew little time!!

    This sounds like a fun idea but also something I've never tried before and not sure how to do this but I think I will follow along to see what you inspiring folks are up to. Just maybe I'll get an idea and run with it.

    not sure If I can do this or not, I normally can copy really well, but to create a critter on my own..... well that will be a challenge for sure! Not even sure where to start ideas at. So we will have to think about this one!
