A Desirable New Theme



Inspired by Valentine's Day this months theme could be interpreted as love, opposingly it could be rage or maybe you want to be enthusiastic about an obsession?!

It could be any of those emotions because the theme for this month is...

PASSION




Your challenge is to create any craft project and join us in a months time to link up and show us your finish. Each month there is a random winner of a $25 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop.


For all the rules please read this post and we will be back to post some inspiration for you before the link opens on March 15th.

How does this theme make you feel? Any ideas what you will make? 
(I'm passionately trying to think of something myself!!)

Dots {fabric inspiration}


Feeling dotty? A little reminder that the link party will open on Valentine's Day so you have just over to week to get your DOTS projects finished and join us for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop (FYI - the link stays open until 8pm on the 16th GMT so you still get lovey dovey time!).


repro dots; pin dots; fun dots; mixed dots; painted dots; wide dots


Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head. Round, circles, bubbles, they look good with stripes! I have tried thinking of some crazy inspiration but dots are so simple. So many colours, sizes, mixed with other patterns. Anything goes!

So are you doing something straightforward with this theme or have you come up with a wild interpretation? 
There's still time to finish something even if you haven't started yet ;)

If you're new to le challenge we would love you to join in with our link party and you can find out all the details and guidelines here.
