TIF latest February

I have found the above in my workroom and they reflect very closely the given colour scheme for February Take it Further Challenge set by Sharon Boggon. This month's concept is 'what are you old enough to remember?' So I brainstormed the concept and always came back to my childhood and its precious memories. Family holidays in Cornwall in the 1960s were the annual highlight of the year, when beach holidays meant taking everything but the kitchen sink with you. A small gas stove to brew tea was essential and salad lunches! The colour scheme is perfect for a beach scene so that's where I'm headed this month. It will be a postcard size again and probably applique in design, still working on that.

Your concept for this month sounds lovely. Cornwall is one of my favourite places in the world. I'll look forward to seeing your finished postcard.

These colours definitely say beach scenes don't they.

Your colors are perfect for a beach scene and I love your concept. Can't wait to see it finished.

I found your blog and love all of your creations...you are a very talented person and creative too.

Do you mind if I add you to my favorites? Happy Valentine's Day!

I am not doing the TIF but like to look at what others are doing. I really like your choice of fabrics -especially the coppery velvet. I look forward to seeing the finished product.
