Something Different

Hello Ladies

The other night I lay in bed wide awake. Then I was hit by a brainstorm for a new CQ project. It will be entitled either "Live Famously" or "Live Infamously". I am leaning towards the second.

We have
Amelia Earhardt
Queen Elizabeth 1
Marie Antionette
Mata Hari
Helen of Troy
Queen Victoria
Joan of Arc

I experimented with 2 different printers and settings. So I ended up with 3 sets

Here is the challenge. I will have a drawing for the 2 extra sets. Then in 2 months we will compare our blocks and see how different out interpretations are. You only have to have 1 done by then

Since the margins are small you may want to use some wonder under to keep them in place. This works for me as my silkies are the first thing I put on a block

Feel free to let others know about this drawing. Entries will be accepted through Midnight August 21

Let the fun begin!!

What I've Been Up To

Hello All
Well it's been awhile! I have been trying to load a new post but Blogger is being screwy. I can't get my pictures to load
So I loaded a bunch of photos to my Flikr site. There is a link over in the sidebar. While there you can click ( or double click) on the photos to make them bigger and see the detail better
This is what I have been obsessed with. I have looked at it every day for over 2 1/2 months. Some days something clicks other days it doesn't. This purse was to be done for the contest on CQI but I am just now almost done
Now to the part I hate. The assembly. I am trying to be very careful and meticulous about assembly. I want to enter this into the County Fair and don't want the finishing details to kill my chances
As you can see it is quite colorful. I can't seem to do monotone or tranquil. What do you think of it NuMom? Enough colors?
It's also quite heavy, maybe 4lbs?
I know some of you would like more commentary . I will try. I am just not a very talkative person. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. I will do my best to answer them
I have decided to go to the Adventures in Crazy quilting Seminar in Glastonbury, Connecticut in April so I am sure I will see some of you there.
Hope you enjoy this piece of obsession!

New Posts

Hello All

I haven't been posting anything new because I am getting hit by spammers.
I have had to delete my most recent post plus several old ones.
These spam commenters are ridiculous!!! On one post I had over 50 of them
I have no clue how to fix this
I have been working on several projects. Hopefully I am now up tp dealing with all the spam.
Have any of you been sending comments that I haven't published? I assure it isn't because I don't want to hear from you!!
Maybe later today once I figure out the new camera I will post my most recent work

WOW!! Words

Hello All
I decided to add a few words this time. I just haven
t had much to say lately so I've just been posting eyecandy
I want to thank all of you who have been leaving comments. It is much appreciated. I am sorry i haven't been able to respond to each one of you personally. I'd say 90% of my posts come through as coming from Janet and if I don't have your name and email on file in my address book, it is difficult to respond.
If you wish a reply then please include your name and email in your post
Above in one of my first CQ projects. It is from 5 years ago. As you can see it is far from finished, but there is hope maybe some day it will be
