The Challenge

Okay, last night my husband and I were watching Julie & Julia and he grabs the remote and pauses the movie. "That's what you need!" he yells. "A deadline! I challenge you to complete two quilts and 10 other fabric art projects in the next year!" "And you have to only use what you already have in your stash"! Well, we have only been married a little over a year and he already knows this fact about me.......I procrastinate. So, I have spent today pondering whether or not I want to accept this challenge. Sort of like a fabric "throw down"? I am asking myself....can I do it? What do you think? Can I? Will I rise to the challenge, or feel the agony of defeat?

While I ponder that question, I had to post post photos of these cute little notebooks that I made for gifts this holiday season. I was dying to post them before Christmas, but didn't want the recipients to see them. My husband bought an embosser to make our Christmas cards and I decided to play with it one evening. So much fun! Now, I am running around the house looking for things to emboss. Maybe the cat? I am definitely going to try some of these cool rubber stamps I bought on fabric.
We had such a great holiday, I was able to spend a few hours with one of my granddaughters and due to the blizzard in Oklahoma City, my son was stranded with us for 3 extra days. We had a great time with him. He rarely stays in one place that long! I also was able to spend time with my parents, my sister and her family. Ahhh.....that's what the holiday's are all about to me.

  1. Cute notebooks - it's just too bad they aren't fabric or you'd already have three of the fabric art projects finished!
