An interactive project for you and me

etsy is running a poster contest which I enjoyed making an entry for. Here it is , whimsy, happy and childish. As me :-)

Julie has just finished a fascinating project on her blog (go see her shop too). I have decided to copy the great idea but I will do it all on fabric. So here' s the deal. I have a piece of white fabric waiting to become a little arty quilt and you are going to help me fill it (I hope). I will use appliqué and embroidery (and hopefully some buttons too). So please tell me what YOU would like to see on it by leaving a message here! I will:

1. wait until I have got ten suggestions
2. draw one of them
3. do my best to do as you wish
4. go through 10 stages
5. draw a winner among all the people who has come with one of the ten first suggestions at any stage

I hope you would like to join me on this, I'm sure it will be great fun! I will be away for a week, my very good friend is getting married but after that I will start with the first task.

What a great idea! I would love to see maybe a scene from Finland, something that you think of when you think of Finland as home.

julie's was so good, but I just didn't suggest enough. Glad to see you are taking it to another arena so to speak. I was thinking water too. A pond perhaps with a small fish.
