February TIF


Well, I've got the title and the fabric and the concept...now I just have to make it, lol!
Since the topic for this month's TIF is 'What are you old enough to remember?', I flashed back to our first TV when I was about 7, I think...it was black and white but so exciting to us back then. So this month my piece is called, 'When the world was Black and White'....I've also got some old black & white photos of myself with the TV and around that same time, so they'll be in the little accordion book for this month...haven't decided on the beads just yet but I have lots of black and white ones, so I'm sure this month I will be able to do it entirely from within my stash. I'm trying to not buy beads for these projects and challenges, although I do find I "need" the occasional fat quarter.

I thought of the black and white tv's too. And the rabbit ears you had to move around to get the picture and as soon as you'd get it and let got the picture would go all snowy again. LOL

yeah, it's hard for me to stay away from color, but i must...

oh gosh yes...I forgot about rabbit ears and how much better the reception was after my dad put an antenna on the roof!

Oh, rabbit ears! I'd forgotten about them too!

It will be fun to see what you do with just black and white ;- )

Love the fabric and the idea. I remember looking at this strange box that I wasn't allowed to touch when I was a little one. Can't say I remember anything of what programs were on the thing!
