You all remember the Cherrywood Fabrics #wickedchallenge from last year, right? If not, click here for my post about my entry, Elphie. Well, the #wickedchallenge was so awesome, that Cherrywood decided to do another one, the #lionkingchallenge. You know me, I had to be a part of this one too! Just look at those awesome fabrics!
Here's a peek at my project - what, a lion? You've got to be kidding, right?!! I'm sure we'll be seeing a lot of lions for this challenge. But, remember, this is only a peek - it is going to change a lot!
And some of this:

And a whole bunch of these:
Can you tell it's almost killing me not to share? I absolutely love my challenge and can't wait until I'm able to share with all of you!
Okay, now you see what's been consuming all my free time. Well, almost. I did manage to float in the pool over the weekend!
And then there's that modern challenge I was talking about in my last post. Here are the fabrics for that - some white Cotton Couture, and some beautiful blues from Cherrywood!
I do have a plan, but as of right now that's all it is - a plan. Stepping out of my comfort zone with this modern thing...
No, I haven't forgotten about Dance in the Rain, it's on the back burner for a few weeks as I try to get ahead on other deadlines - like my Journeys Thru Art Project, which is due in November. This years subject is bridges. I am doing the Trenton Makes bridge. I have a conference call tomorrow with the awesome Cindy Lohbeck (Hands on Hand Dyes) to discuss the background fabric - I can't wait to hear what she has planned for my background fabric.
Oh, and I can't forget about the Journeys Thru Art groups field trip this week... Zoo Miami!! I can not wait! I have been wanting to do a quilt of the Giant Eland (Lord Derby Eland) for a long while now -- when I found out that Zoo Miami was one of only a handful of places that has the Giant Eland I literally squealed. Why? Because I can stand there all afternoon and take pictures until I get the one I absolutely want. So yeah, on top of everything else I want to create, we'll just add a Giant Eland quilt too - no biggy! So watch next week for some awesome zoo pics on my photo blog!
I think that's it... no worries, if I'm forgetting something it'll just be in the next post!
