Planning Ahead



One thing I'm looking forward to this year is participating in the Interpret This group. Eleven of us have committed to the challenge of creating a work every month based on a photo. All members will interpret the same photo, except for January, when each of us will interpret a photo of ourselves. Clicking on the Interpret This badge in the sidebar will take you to the blog dedicated to the challenge, where you can read an introduction by the members, see albums of our work, and at the end of the month see the reveals. If you haven't seen this blog yet, I hope you'll go look, and sign up to be a follower.

I'm not posting year long goals, but besides the Interpret This challenge, I hope to work through some design exercises I received as a Christmas gift, make as many service quilts as I did last year, keep making small works for Alzheimer's Quilt Initiative, and do whatever else strikes my fancy! One of the first things is to finish Boring Baskets. I finished the alternate blocks yesterday, and will now start the pieced setting triangles--maybe today!

Boring baskets???
Well, maybe in the making of them, but certainly not how they look.

The Interpret This challenge sounds very interesting. I'm looking forward to seeing what you all come up with.

Well now, the Interpret This group and following should prove to be extremely interesting. Thanks for sharing this. You know I really enjoy all the cool things like this that you do! I'm not posting goals either. I feel like my path is working which basically is the "be better than I was yesterday."

I have an opinion of those baskets now and it isn't boring so I sure hope we have a better name than this! I mean, respectfully, I'm just sayin...

One thing though, I'm glad the holidays are over 'cause personally I felt you were busy and gone a lot and I missed ya.

I'll be watching to see how the photo and thread challenge goes. I agree with Nellie, the baskets certainly don't look boring.

Boring baskets indeed! I can't wait to see what you come up with for the challenge. I know it won't be boring:):)

I can't wait to see what this group comes up with. You are all so very talented it should be a feast for the eyes.
By the way, I have "Wolf Hall" waiting in the wings. I read a review that was great and now that I've seen what happened to Cromwell, I'm dying to know if it's true. They tend to dramatize these things to death(pardon the pun) in movies but I suspect it has some basis in reality. ((((shudder)))

The baskets are lovely though I know what you mean. I become bored with the sameness once I master a block. That explains my closet of shame.
