After all the canna's were put away for another year. I enjoyed some time outside, practicing my picture taking. All summer long I waited for the dahlia's to grow. At this point this is the only one I got, and soon it will have to come out,too. But at least I have a picture.

I was hoping to have this together by the end of the weekend. That way I could start on the quilting. That opens up a whole other ball of wax, handquilting vs. machine??? Regardless I'm still in love with the fabric, :) Bliss, absolute bliss I tell you!

I could be in love, from this point on. So you are curious if I've cut into any of this. Of course I have. I can't have it sitting in a box forever. It is just too beautiful.
And what better way to make sure I stay on track than to join a group of others working on a project. Or maybe it just gives me a deadline, I work better when there is a deadline. So I have joined, Stina at Pink pincushion for the Le Petite, a year of small projects.
This could be just the kick I need about now. After all small=accomplish able!To find out more,visit Stina at: http://www.pinkpinchushion.blogspot.com

So sometime last week I was doing my usual blog reading, aka. distraction from school work.http://http://straystitches1.blogspot.com/ When I ran across linda's post about passing it forward. I couldn't help but join in. Really it's quite simple.
1. You respond to this post saying you would like to pass it forward. (about 3 please) And I will make something for you, sometime in the next year.
(table runner, knit scarf, something handmade.)
2. Then you post about this on your blog, asking others to join you and then you make something for those 3 people.
I have been thinking about this, those of you with out blogs. Well I'm changing this part a bit. If you want to participate and you don't have a blog. All I ask is that you make something for someone else, whom you don't know. Donate it to a shelter, a nursing home, someone who needs a pick me up. And if you share a picture and story with me I'll post it here.
There is no big points here for making something out of great fabric to brag about your worth. This is simply on opportunity to make someone's day. :)
So l look forward to hearing from you.
