Today is the start of Tour de Fibre. If you remember from last year, Hanne and I did a Tour de Fibre while watching Tour de France. This is the first blogpost I made last year, and it was fun to see which projects I was working on at that time. Neither of those two projects are finished.
And for you who do not know what Tour de Fibre is I can tell you that Hanne and I + several other ladies will try to make a blogpost each day through Tour de France. Hanne and I are the tour leaders and we will make a list in the sidebar with a link to the other ladies who joins us with blogposts in Tour de Fibre. So please ladies, if you are joining Tour de Fibre let us know so we kan visit your blogs and link to you.
Hanne made a blogpost already in May telling about her preparations for Tour de Fibre.
And what is my plans for this Tour de Fibre.
First of all HAVING FUN in my sewingroom and in front of the tv while watching Tour de France.
Having focus on some of my WIP projects.
Perhaps I manage to quilt some of these finished tops. Some are already basted and some not. But now I have several yards of backings so no excuse for not being able to finish them. Hmmmm, but have I enough batting?? If not it will be on my list for buying when I am going on a quilt trip with friends soon.
Other projects I will give focus to is Scandinavian Christmas and Antique Sampler. Really want to make some progress on these quilts. Another focus is MORE TOILETPURSES and BAGS. Need more both for myself and for the marked in august.
Tour de Fibre is not all about having focus on old WIP projects. It is also about STARTING NEW PROJECTS. With all the inspiration everywhere in books, magazines and other blogs I always find something I want to make.
Like this cute little zipper case I finished yesterday.
It is a pattern from Anni Downs new book “The Simple Life”. It was so fun to stitch it and I love it.
This is a zipper case just for me. Already in use storing a little stitchery.
And then over to Bags……….and more bags
Following ladies have made a comment on this post that they have taken the challenge and blogged about their bags and are now in the draw for a little prize. Visit their blogs and take a look at all their bags and purses. It is so inspiring and I got new ideas to make new ones for myself.
How to pick the winner. A phone to Hanne, asking her to pick a number between 1 and 11. And she said number 7 is the winner.
And number 7 is: NEMO
Please email me you adress and I will send your prize.
