March forum CHALLENGE!!!

It looks like I'm the one to start this for the month! So I'll lay out some groundrules and suchlike I guess. Subject to change in future months if anyone has a problem with or suggestion for other guidelines, but I think it would be least confusing if the first post held that month's rules.

Month: March, 2012
Topic: Water

Any interpretation thereof, in any fiber medium/media. Explain how your work represents or includes water, brainstorming project ideas is encouraged.

WIPs STRONGLY encouraged! (my favorite part!) Related, project updates also strongly encouraged.

Links that inspire you or have project ideas are welcome.

Suggested Limits: Have a solid idea posted in this thread, and have materials for the project of your choice by the end of March. This is to prevent a massive backlog of projects fiber artists especially tend to accumulate. Of course, if someone comes across this thread in months/years to come, and has a fabulous idea that just cries out to be made, make and post it and be welcome

No ending time limit!!

Thread your needles!

Re: March forum CHALLENGE!!!

I am excited! I live on a lake with an island within easy swimming distance, and all my childhood memories have the lake as background. Ideas are twirling round in my head so fast I can't even identify them! WHEE!!!!

I'm thinking of making some felted waterlilies, although whether knitted then felted (or fulled, I am told), or if I should do it like a painting on some fabric with my felting needle, I'm not sure.

Some random words/ideas thrown out there: beach, merpeople, swim, sun hat, rain, drink, snow, boat, clean, fresh, fish

Re: March forum CHALLENGE!!!

Hi Irry
it's a great project and I am already working with water in all the rugs we have designed so far so I need to skip this challenge also I am very busy getting ready for the exhibition on the 22nd of March. So much to do and so little time..

Re: March forum CHALLENGE!!!

What a great idea. I can see the river that runs through the back of the property from my kitchen window. I've painted it in quick sketches but nothing fiber yet, I will have to ponder this for a bit. I didn't even realize there were challenges on this forum. Fun!
