Not one, but two!

One of my goals for 2012 was to join more online challenges.  My lucky stars found two for me within the first two weeks of the new year :)

I stumbled upon the Simple Living Pledge and challenge on the Kanelstrand blog.  For three weeks in February, participants will strive to live a simple life in a complicated world.  There will be posts on various aspects of keeping your sanity in an ever complicated world, most certainly there will be something for everyone.  A quiet mid-winter month should provide perfect timing for such an endeavour.  Follow this link to Kanelstrand and wander through the crafty posts!  Take the pledge, if you'd like to challenge yourself!

I also happened upon the Just Takes 2 quilt along.  For everyone who has L.O.V.E.D. the great red and white quilts (or the blue and white, or the yellow and white, or...), Brenda and Gay have organized the perfect project.  It's a mystery quilt with block patterns revealed each month.  After all the blocks are made, the full quilt placement will be revealed.  And all done in just two colors....sweet simplicity ;)

I'll be working on the Just Takes 2 quilt during Friday Night Sew Ins, of course!  The sign up has been posted for January 20th.  How about joining us for a cozy evening with a favorite project?

Have a wonderful evening!
