In my Calendar Girls group, we have just started a Round Robin. Above is the piece of fabric given to me by my friend Mary Gerkin. We each just passed a piece of fabric from our stash for the start. Several of us used fabric we painted, printed or manipulated in some way. Mary did hers in my class. 
Below is what I made out of it. There are no rules, we just had to do what ever we felt like doing, & then we will pass it on to the next person next month. I layered this on to backing & batting as I pieced it together, so it is already partially quilted. Now when I pass it on, Carol may quilt, or embellish, or do what ever she wants.

Today when we were having our dinner, this poor squirrel decided to come for dinner too. He looked like he was shirtless! I think he must have Mange!

Photos were taken through the window with the sun shining right at me, so I got a lot of reflection, but can you how bald the poor thing is?! I feel like I should knit him a little sweater!

I am jealous of the round robin project-I need to stop talking about one and start one in my circle of friends!!!

I was reading an article about polar bears losing fur, too-perhaps you have a similar problem in Alaska?!

Knit him a sweater and have your hubby put it on the little guy! lol

I love your idea for the Round-Robin. How many "rounds" will it be making? Their always fun to get back.

What a great idea for the round robin project! The poor squirrel needs a little warm wool sweater.

Poor little squirrel! And with all that snow, he must be freezing!
The round robin project looks great.
