getting ready to plunge into Orca Bay

Bonnie has announced her new mystery quilt, Orca Bay. I hadn't really thought about participating in this one until I read her fabric requirements. Then that little voice in the back of my head, the one that gets me started on so many different projects, started to remind me that I've got plenty of reds and blues and neutrals -- lots of neutrals... and this quilt is little enough that it doesn't scare the heck out of me!

It's the black I'm not so sure about... I've got blacks, just not a huge variety of them. But I'm sure I'll find more when I'm cleaning up my sewing corner. And if all else fails, Mom's got lots of blacks and maybe I can mooch a few pieces from her.

Back when Bonnie announced the colors for Roll Roll Cotton Boll, I had stacks of pink and green right in front of me, but decided not to go through with it. Bad decision.

This time I'm going to try not to let myself get too intimidated before the first step is released.

I'm still trying to decide. There are so many projects on my shelves, started and waiting to be started, do I dare do another? I have plenty of FQs to use. Maybe a little me time and a look at my last project list will me decide.
