Let the fun commence! Tour de Fibre 2012


Tour de France on the television and Tour de Fibre in the quilt corner!
Today is the Prologue of the Tour, and I have made it my prologue as well,
clearing the sewing table for the Tour de Fibre :-)


Definition of PROLOGUE

1 : the preface or introduction to a literary work
2a: a speech often in verse addressed to the audience by an actor at the beginning of a play b: the actor speaking such a prologue
3: an introductory or preceding event or development

It has been said that a cluttered sewing room is a sign of a creative mind in work.
I must admit that clutter does not cut it for me when being creative, even if it can be a bit messy when I am working.
I HAD to de-clutter and clean my space in order to give my best during the Tour.

Edvald Boasson Hagen from Norway came in 5. place in France - I came in 1. here in the quilt corner :-)


Magisk Lykke = Magical happiness or Magical luck
These cute buttons were hid on my desk - now they are in my button box, but they got me thinking what gives me magical happiness - not a bad way to start the Tour de Fibre :-)


I had picked 4 focus projects to work on during the Tour, but this morning I read up on what I did in 2011, and realised that the quilt I was working on then still is without binding, so that will be my first project.


Last year I had my right foot in a cast, but I was able to do these Dresden flowers :-)


I am looking forward to both the Tour de France and the Tour de Fibre, and I hope you will enjoy spending time with May Britt, me and all the other participants.

  5. My sewing room was tidied last week so I am ahead :) I sat last night & did some quilting on my Snowball quilt & today at work I got 4 berries sewn on a block from Flowerdale in my break .....let the fun begin

  6. Lykke til med Touren både med sykel og med nål&tråd. Her blir det ferie vekk fra TV kroken, så det blir ikke mye tour de france på meg. Kanskje litt mer nål og tråd.

    God tour for deg også, Hanne :0)
