    Very pretty Dotty!

    dotty- i love your idea! independence for our kids is so difficult. i pressured my first born to leave the nest and i'm very sure it was harder on me than him. i still feel bad about it. but he is grown up, has a good job, a loving wife, and a gorgeous little daughter. everything i could want for him. i still miss the young version of my children, being able to hold them on my lap, and kiss their heads, soothe their worries away. now i can't reach the boys' heads, but at least my daughter is my height! all three live away- 2 in texas, one in ny. i hate growing up!

    I agree Dot, darker, maybe just two shades of the green, you need more of a foundation to hold up. You are the foundation for your children as they shine in life.

    you could go with a brighter green, not necessarily darker.

    Agreed. Too sleepy to make decisions tonight. Just finished my monochromatic piece. It is so-o hot, but I have to go out. I am out of milk & I will really want some for my morning coffee. Before I move the car. Ah, NYC!

    This is hilarious! Art quilts and yentas. Years ago on the quilt.com bulletin board I found an obstetrician in Wichita KS for my DD who had just moved there. She delivered four of my grandkids, so it was a good match. Hope you have as good luck with your matchmaking. I'd love to try this challenge, but have several things going right now. Will watch it at a later time.

    Do you mean the 9 x 12" for Alzheimer's research? I am. I do roses in honor of a lovely lady named Rose.

    i did a quilt for aaqi, but haven't heard from them yet. my mother died in december from alzheimer's. makes it kind of personal.

    Yes, if we all made one little quilt, it would be awesome.

    that would be a great secondary purpose of this group! anyone who wants to participate in the aaqi challenge needs to go to their website and read the rules. it would be terrific. we have the fun of seeing everyone's art work and then have the higher purpose of donating it! as you may have guessed, i'm all for it!

    I don't know if this is really a group. I don't think the "challenges" thread creates much as much cohesion as a swap.
    I used to do a lot of the swaps but am focusing more on my own work now. The aaqi gives more motivation. And I did meet a new buddy "stuck in Philly"!!

    i don't see why we can't be a group if we want to be! we could have a leader of the month, that way everyone gets to feel really involved and no one person is 'in charge'. how about instead of a theme, we concentrate on factions of art quilts, color, texture, painting, threadwork, any number of things.
    i heard there's a train that goes from here to there and back again, so nyc isn't impossible to get to, and a person might could get unstuck, for a day!

    I love the idea of seeing everyone's art work each month.......whether it goes to aaqi or just for stretching our personal creativity and sharing with everyone. It all sounds good to me.
