June Take It Further Challenge - Day 4

Well, we went back and looked at that piece of property that we found yesterday but it didn't feel right. We found another area that we liked so we'll go back and look at that again next weekend. I have a feeling though, that the first one we found back in May is the right one. That popped into my head earlier today, many times, the first one is the right one. But we'll see.

I was asked where we are in Northern Illinois. We're on the northeast side of McHenry county and we like it here so we're looking in our current area, just a bit more north of where we are now. Ringwood, Richmond, Johnsburg, Spring Grove area. There's still a lot of farmland here and we like that.

On to my Take It Further block for June, I did do some more beading on it yesterday:

June TIF Block

I'm trying to think of some of my more "unusual" stash items that I can add to this. I want to fill this one up to convey the fact that I have more than enough stash for this lifetime and the next! I do however want to keep within the same arena as my other blocks. They all have to work together to make a nice quilt. I guess we'll see where it goes.

I mentioned yesterday that my mom bought me a kit for making Artist's Trading Cards. Scott & I went to Borders this morning to look for books but they didn't have one for fabric & fiber ATC's. I really love collage art but I'm not into the the really spooky weirdo stuff. I like the vintage look a lot. I know that Quilting Arts has one out but Borders didn't have it. I might have to order that from Amazon. In the meantime, here's a Flickr group with Fabric/Fiber ATC's. Lot's of pretty ATC's to look at here!

I also wanted to mention that I started a new group over at Stitchin' Fingers for Collector's of Vintage Iron-On Embroidery Transfers. If you like to collect and stitch from those like I do, hop over and join! Here's the link.
