The 365 Challenge

Are you joining in Leanne's 365 Challenge? It seems many of us are going to be journaling our way through a quilt over the next year. A Yahoo group has been formed for people working on the Challenge. Feel free to join us. Just click on the link in my sidebar.

I purchased my fabrics yesterday with a gift cheque from my boss. Ignore the wrinkles in the photo. I've washed the fabric, but haven't ironed it yet. I may also use fabric leftover from DH's Egyptian cotton dress shirts. That would be a nice touch, don't you think? I know I have a Bust Stash button on my side bar, but I don't have any neutrals in my stash so I had to buy the fabric. It won't even make it into my stash!

I bought Pigma pens the other day for another project and I finally found Reynolds freezer paper at my local butcher shop. A shop I'm in at least once a week and never thought to look for the paper in it!

Tonight I'm enjoying the company of DS and DIL. Tomorrow night I will probably cut fabric while watching the first Red Sox - Yankees game of the baseball season. DH will be home from Shanghai sometime around midnight. Saturday he will probably spend the day catching up on sleep while I get ready for my quilt gathering next weekend.

I'm actually thinking about starting this quilt when I'm 25 - this November. Basically a quilt of my entire 25th year. :)

I know I would not make it anywhere close to 365 entries so I will be rational and just pass along my support for your efforts!!! I try to keep a written journal and even that has gaps of weeks and months sometimes.
I do like journalling and have kept journals since 1972. Yes, I still have them all and my oldest daughter hs instructions to destroy them as soon as I die and never let anyone to read them.

yes i have joined the 365 Challenge. I've been jotting things down in a small notebook starting from April 1st. I like the fabrics you've chosen for the blocks. I haven't decided whether to use neutrals or very soft,pale colors for the blocks.

thanks for the info on the challenge. I think it is a neat idea. Your blog is so cute with the coffee time header on it. Nice job.
