The orange project on the left and the old green and white abstract on the left are both coming along. I hope to add some of this fuchsia magenta or what ever you want to call this reddish color in the green and white project. I started making some Seminole strips to see if that would be a nice way to work it into my final assembly. I think I have to switch gears to decide with only one project on the wall at a time it will be easier to sort out what I like.

Earlier this week, I started in a new thing with a group called Add a Boarder on Flickr.com This very creative fellow Dustin Cecil in eastern Kentucky runs the Flickr. group from his home stead farm. I was impressed with his quilt blocks and his heirloom turkeys and farm animals that I have been following for a while in his posted photos on Flickr, Dustin has a blog with farm animal pictures and stories here:
Joined up the flickr swap group with this little block 6.5x6.5 inches square is the first round in which someone else will add another 6 inch boarder to it three times to complete the block at about 24 inches. I am calling it Dusty Hour Glass which you can see in the second photo when it is tipped up as a diamond. I am curious which block from the group I will get back in the mail to begin adding my boarder onto, or maybe I am suppose to choose one? I am still trying to figure out how this swap works.
