TIF Challenge and a birthday

This year I am doing the Take it Further challenge with Sharon B as a follow up to the TAST challenge that I did last year.
There are 2 parts to the challenge -the first one is the concept part and the second one is the colour part.
I have chosen to do the colour part because I have decided to do a crazy quilt block a month incorporating the monthly colour scheme.
These are the fabrics that I have chosen but the colours are not photographing correctly--for instance the colour on the left is really a purple colour not royal blue.
I will add other fabrics and laces in these colours as I go through my stash because I have decided to only use fabrics and embellishments that I have already and I will not go out and buy more "stuff"- if I don't have it then I will have to make do with what I have which is my challenge to myself.






The other thing which I have waited until today for before posting these fabrics is that I have been blogging for 1 year today.
I have stated previously that I only started blogging because of the TAST challenge and I thought it would be nice to start the TIF challenge on the anniversary of the my first day of blogging.
I look forward to this years challenge and given what a great experience last years challenge was know that I will enjoy this one as well.

Good luck with the TIF challenge.

Congrats on your anniversary Doreen, doesn't time fly, when your having fun. Love the colours, I know just what you mean about the camera not producing the right colour, it's the bain of my life. I have a small Canon digi the gets it right almost every time and was half the price of my Nikon, but of course it doesn't have the quality in the lens, but the Nikon gets the colour wrong 75% of the time Grrrrr!
Love your take on the challenge, that sounds very exciting and a clever interpretation of the theme.

Happy Anniversary, I'm also aiming to use as much material from my stash for these challenges, hopefully to make some space so I can work more comfortably! Also I have several Fuji cameras which are quite good on colour as long as it isn't red!

Hi!
Many, many congratulations. I had no idea but just now memories have come back to me...all those wonderful posts about the TAST challenge. You really made me wish I'd known about it and participated. I've so enjoyed your stitches, your humor, and your photos of friends, family, and artwork. I will look forward to watching your new design challenges unfold. I am honored to know you through the cyber universe.
Susan
