TIF - July colours and concept.

I have not been very productive with my stitching recently, there seem to have been other things that demanded my attention and time, but hopefully creative sewing will start again soon. I spent almost two days sorting and tidying my working spaces, as I seem to have spread everywhere in the house, with every possible surface covered with fibres and fabric used in working the lesson samples for the Embellish, Stitch and Enrich class over the past five weeks. With the prospect of house guests this weekend, and a party of sorts in a week or so, I decided that it was time to clean the slate ready to make a fresh start. Now, with the purchase of several plastic bins of various sizes, there is order from the chaos, and the satisfaction of finding treasures in my stash of stuff that I had forgotten I possessed. Somehow I find tidiness and organisation conducive to a new beginning, even though once in progress, I am capable of making the most amazing mess.

A starting point will be this month's TIF, where Sharon has asked 'What is it to be at the half way mark?' As usual this can be interpreted in any way, using what ever techniques one likes, in a project of one's choosing.........but also as usual, I have no great ideas yet. The optional colour scheme is appealing as it contains my favourite muddy blue and a limey green.

I'm just rooting through my comments and found yours from a long atime ago so I'm just here to say Hi. How on earth do you do those challenges? I am amazed at the ingenuity of so many of the results I've seen.
