Excited about this project

Hello, my name is Jenni and I live in Alberta. I have been a crazy quilter (a devotee of crazy quilting, also a quilter who is a little crazy!) for many years, and still have so much to learn. I like to try new techniques, and I love embellishing with beads, buttons and found objects. I'm really excited about this project, the first time I have joined a challenge like this.

I'm thinking I will work in smallish pieces, maybe 6" square. I plan to join the squares to make a wallhanging, by putting grommets in each corner and connecting the squares with metal rings like in 3-ring binders. My theme will be something like "through my sewing room window" or "through my kitchen window". We are moving to an old farmhouse in a couple of weeks, and I'm going to pick a window, and depict the view from that same window through the changing months/seasons. This will be more of an abstract view, a "suggestion" of what I see, not actual landscape quilting. 6" squares will be a fun size, and not too intimidating, since I love starting projects and I often run out of steam midway if it's too ambitious. Seeing everyone else's pix will keep me inspired and working steadily.

Can't wait to get our move done, so I can unpack my sewing/art supplies and get stitching. Until then, I'm surfing the net, and making sketches of all my ideas.

I've never posted pictures, so that will be my next challenge, once I have some eye candy to show off. Thanks for letting me join this creative group!
