Tour de Fibre 2011 - Christmas in July

Tor Hushovde lost his points in Tour de France today.

But Hanne and I am keeping track of our Tour de Fibre.
Perhaps a little bit competition between us two :)

I guess you all have seen that Hanne have been stitching on
Lynette's Magical Christmas

So has I. Long time ago I started stitching on this quilt. And as usual it has been stored away in a box and forgotten. Pulling it out of the box today, I discovered what was left to do on this quilt.

Just one star!!!!

It took me less than 15 minutes to trace the star and needlturn applique it on the quilt.

Now it is ready to be basted and quilted. The backing is in the washing machine now. And I promise that this time it will not be stored away. It will be one of my July finishes. Christmas in July is great :)

Saying for today:

If you smile when no one else is around,
you rally mean it.
