At the beginning of the month I challenged myself to work on my art everyday. I remember my mother saying, "Are you sure you want to set such a rigid goal? I don't want you to be disappointed if it doesn't happen." Well, if there is one thing I have begun to learn in this first seven months of motherhood, it is that you do what you can when you can. I am learning to go with the flow. Although I haven't created every day this month, I have worked on my art much more than I have in previous months. I'm proud to say that I will have two-maybe three 9" X 12" journal quilts that will be exhibited in the Texas SAQA booth at the International Quilt Festval in Houston in less than two weeks. Now, that's something I am truly proud of!

Today was the first day of the October Challenge. I have been working on a nursery jungle mural at my church, and today, I made a lot of progress. I think I have about three more hours of work to go and it will be complete. I also picked some some possible photos for inspiration and made a couple of sketches for some journal quilts. I'd say that is a good start to my challenge.
