CHALLENGE
There was a group of us quilters that went to FL last year to stay with our good friend and fellow quilter, Mel, at her home around St. Petersburg. In our quilt store hop, I fell in love with the fish fabric we saw. This is the first stage of this project. Don't you like the attic windows? Looks like an aquarium, I think.


The "Challenge" is to come up with words to be done in the border. The second challenge is to my friends who we have been dubbed "Queen" of words (learned from Tonya). They will have to give me lessons in this stage which I hope they will do when we are at Camp in IN in a couple of weeks.


Join the fun and give me your ideas for words. It might help to know that I plan to give this to my 7 yr. old grandson for his room.

Awesome fish! What do you think of these for the word border: How much is that dogfish in the window? - A dream is a fish your carp makes. - Salmon Chanting Evening - When you fish upon a star....

Have fun and I can't wait to see it when you're done!

Your comment on my blog sounded like you don't know who I am! It's Michelle...used to be married to Mel's son. I read your blog all the time. Linda's too. I'm not staying at camp this year, but I will try to get there to say hi to everyone.

I love the window effect. It does look like an aquarium! I'm stumped on a saying though. I'll put my thinking cap on!

And by the way...what's this camp thing you keep talking about...open to the public or closed private??

I can't wait to read what everyone comes up with as I am stumped for words.

freedom. peace. fun. fast. bright. shiny. quicksilver. adventure.

If it were for my 7 y.o. boy I would love to see those sort of words around the edges. Words to intrigue a child's imagination. Positive affirmations. Exciting words.
