For this month, Sharon's Challenge sets forth:

"The key concept for January is a feeling we have all had, the feeling of admiration for another. Ask yourself who do you look up to and admire? Why? What is it you admire about them? This is a the first Take it Further challenge in 2008. Take the idea, develop it into a resolved design during that month and apply it to fiber or paper. As I explained on the Take it Further Challenge page every month there will be two options. The second option this month is a colour scheme. This means that if you don’t like the concept you can work the colour scheme or if you don’t like the colour scheme you can work with the concept. Or you can work with both.

After thoughtful consideration of both of these concepts I have decided that I am choosing Option 2. Option 1 is certainly a thought provoking option and would be my preference, however, considering we have a 30 day time limit to complete each project, I think that I would get "too involved" with option 1 and have opted the "color scheme" challenge. I went through my box of fabrics that I printed on as a result of a fiber art class I took over the summer and selected several which I think match up to Sharon's selected color selections quite nicely. I think I wil use these little printed pieces and create something from them....

I love your fabric selection. I also have decided to do the color challenge for this month. I could spend weeks and weeks on "admiration". I decided that it was best if I did not get behind right out of the gate!

Hey, I recognize those! You are one lucky pup to have used the right colors when we were making those!!! I am also doing option 2, just haven't had a chance to start it yet.
