TIF Challenge, January, the research continues.



Today Sharon B., see sidebar link, has posted about a great online exhibition featuring illustrations and writings about women's relationships with nature. Of course I spent quite a while browsing the site, and found this lovely coloured rendering of Clematis which just happened to be in Sharon's January TIF Challenge palette. I seem to be leaning more and more towards the colour palette for my January Challenge so now I just have to decide
1. Threads or fabrics
2. Form of project
3. Size of project
4. How to present it

Now you know why I say I have a Black Belt in Procrastination, one decision made leads to several more pending ! I think my Goal for 2008 will surely have to be F..O..C..U..S

Thanks for dropping by my blog Christine and leaving a comment--it sure feels good to have somewhere to work.

I saved Sharon's link rather than actually checking it out because I knew I would be distracted. I love botanical illustrations! One of my favourite things during our last trip to England was the Marriane North gallery at Kew

I could have sat there all day.

Anyway, good luck with your TIF. After not finishing TAST last year (although I did manage to keep up until September) I'm going to set myself shorter term goals as I see what my schedule is like. Right now, finishing my band on Jenny's sampler is my two week from now goal.

thanks for stopping at my blog also. I had a hard time deciding on my challenge subject also, that's why I gave myself a deadline to come up with something. Since Focus is the word of the year, how about working on one thing that you've wanted to try, and just focus on that. As to size, depends on what you are focusing on. As I was thinking through what I wanted to do, I was trying to decide the best way to lay things out, cutting table, ironing board, foam board?? Well you'll have to go back and read my post today to see what I decided.
