Friday evening Hanne came for a weekend visit and we just relaxed and sewed while planning the Tour de Fibre 2014. We both have picked some focus projects. And both have the theme blocks this year.
Saturday was the start of Tour de France and what’s better than having the opening for the Tour de Fibre at a quilt shop. We drove down to Flisa where Kreative Ingema has her quilt shop. She used to share it with another shop owner that sold yarn, but now she has the entire shop for herselv.
And it is a wonderful quiltshop with lots of temptations. This shop is just about 30 minutes driving from where I live, and I am so happy to have her so close.
She also had a little corner in the shop where we enjoyed a cup of coffee while chatting about quilty stuff.
Know I will be back in this shop and I recommend all quilters passing through Flisa or nearby to visit Kreative Ingema.
Back home sewing on the porch. My focus this weekend was my star blocks.
And for the first time this summer it was so warm that we could sit outdoors until past midnight.
And I was happy to have my neck light so that I could sew all evening.
Hanne and I have had a wonderful weekend sewing together. And we are already planning a new sewing together this summer. We had the opening of TdF together and we will also end the Tdf together with champagne and prizes for well done TdF.
So far I have made 17 blocks for my Sunburst quilt. This is a pattern from Carolyn Konig book One Stitch at a Time. Love this book. And I love making these blocks.
My TdF continues by sewing blocks. I have several projects that is in progress making blocks both in EPP, needleturn, sewing with machine and sewing by hand. Guess you will see more of these blocks during the tour.
Are you joining us in the Tour de Fibre this year??
Saying for today:
