NYC Challenge Part TWO

Okay, bloggers -- for the SECOND leg of their New York City Sewing Challenge -- I sent both Jan and Bonne a Statue of Liberty shawl!! Hummm...I know this is going to be the really hard part...

So here we go on our "Statue of Liberty" challenge - so what will we come up with this time?!! I don't see any zebra stripes yet........hmmmm, how would they fit in with this gorgeous lady anyway?!! Maybe a little checkerboard trim, lace? How're ya doin' bonne?!!

Hey There Rita!
Son in Law couldn't get home from CA for our daughter's corp. retreat so at the last minute I got to go. (note from Rita -- I love your life!)

So much for me having extra days and getting a leg up on Jan :-) I have the base of the jacket under control, and although I know what I want to do I have been hesitant about touching the beautiful Statue of Liberty scarf. So here is my plan - hope it works for you. I took the scarf with me and will take a picture of me with it by the Spruce Goose, how's that for a hint for Jan? LOL!!! Guess we are having dinner under the wings of the plane tonight.

So -- here are the two mysterious pictures Bonne sent. Whadaya think, Jan??

WOW!! This is turning into an amazing challenge...and sort of a geography lesson as well!! From New York to Iowa -- then to Oregon, Washington -- and now -- California??


P.S. -- today is the last time you can see Bonne & Jan's finished projects which I posted last week (using the gorgeous MOOD floral knit fabric). After today -- those pictures go BACK IN THE VAULT...and you'll have to wait until the 2011 Expo to see the NYC Challenge Projects again. Up Close & the Friday Inspired 2 Sew Event!!

    The Spruce Goose is in McMinnville, Oregon these days, in a fabulous big aviation museum that's an awesome sight even if planes aren't "your thing!"

  3. oops, Beckie -- I don't know why I thought it was in California! thanks for the info...I'd love to see it. McMinnville??

    McMinnville is maybe 50 miles SW of Portland. The Spruce Goose moved there from California in 1993. Sounds like a side trip in the works after Expo?!

  5. count me in!! maybe we could schedule a sewing retreat under the Spruce Goose...!
