Take it Further Challenge

I have decided to try my hand at the Take it Further Challenge posted by Sharon B - from In a Minute Ago blog. I did not fancy the last challenge of taking a stitch as I think my stitch repertoire is OK but this may give me a spur. One item a month should be manageable. Come and join us..... The info is as follows or look at Sharon's site.

The Challenge
On the 1st of each month Sharon will post a key concept. The challenge is to take the idea, develop it and push it towards a resolved design during that month. In other words you interpret the idea and apply it to fiber or paper.
Every month there will be two options. The second option will be a colour scheme or a design element like a shape, to develop into a resolved design. This means that if you don’t like the concept you can work the colour scheme or is you don’t like the colour scheme you can work with the concept. Or you can work with both.
The actual project you design can be any thing, in any medium or format you choose. It can be a crazy quilt block, a postcard, a journal quilt, a piece of embroidery, a sampler, a fabric book page or whatever sparks your imagination. It can also be visual journal work. In other words pages spreads of designs worked in a visual journal will be seen as a valid entry and included as one of the formats acceptable for the challenge.

Hi!
I'm so glad you went out to see Enchanted. It really was such fun. Of all the images I've seen on various blogs and Internet sites recently, your piles of rusted and grilled and otherwise distressed fabrics keeps popping up...even in my dreams. Keep up the good work but do allow yourself the luxury of going out, mingling, and enjoying the rest of life! The only way to keep pouring out one's soul with art is to continually be taking in all the world has to offer. You are so talented. You deserve to soak up all that is available in order to continue your amazing output!
