157 - Chat Noir

Order of the OPUS GLUEI has a new Poobah. Chat Noir has graciously agreed to join our humble little challenge blog. I am so excited. I have been friends with her for a bit now, and am thrilled that she is one of the gang and will be contributing her talents. 

The challenge this go 'round is a welcoming challenge in her honor:

(Black Cat)

Use a CAT or BLACK, or both, in your project this month.

Welcome CHAT NOIR.

Flower Bird

(That's the echo off of the blank walls I call my blog. 'Scuse me while I wipe away the cobwebs.)

I have been on a blake. (Blog-break). The blake is now over, and I am ready to go again. I just needed a bit of a re-charge. Sometimes you just need to step back and not worry about some things. KWIM?

Lots to catch up with, but today is all about OPUS GLUEI. (I took a blake there too. But am also back there.)

The theme for this fortnight is BOUQUET to YOU. Flowers. Anything to do with flowers. Drawing them, planting them, decorating with them. OR Making a bird with them. OR a flag. OR butterflies. 

The bird is the front and the butterflies are the back. Just in case you NEED to know. 

The flag is going to be sent to be put on display in Boston to help folks heal from the horrible terrorist attack at the Marathon. The Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild is collecting them for a Memorial Day ceremony. You can read more about it HERE. 

The bird pattern was from Block Lotto for the April block lottery. You can read more about the block lottery HERE and get the bird pattern HERE.

The butterflies were extras made for a butterfly block swap I participated in a couple of months ago. They are the perfect width for this flag. AND they are made out of flowers too. Very happy accident.

You certainly don't need to make a flag. Or a bird. Or give whatever it is you make to someone else. BUT we would love to see what you make. Link up your creation over on OPUS GLUEI. Come on and play with us. It's fun.
