Tour de Fibre 2012

I decided to join in with  Hanne's ( and May Britt's (  Tour de Fibre 2012 to get me working on my quilts and embroideries and not be distracted by other activities. I have started with the SKOW SAL quilt that I had lagged behind with and have definitely noted some progress!

This is where I have been for awhile.

I had these blocks done but not joined-- so further progress.

I was struggling measuring the long 2 "strips and got a brainwave to join the 3 together and then cut to the correct length! Why had I not thought to do  that before?

This is where I am up to now.

I had been waiting for the weather to improve to photograph these blocks-- I thought if I pegged them on the line I would be able to get the whole lengths in the photos. Even though it is not currently raining, it is windy and no way would these pieces keep still long enough! So the floor is the next best thing.

I must add that I have only seen snippets of the Tour de France on the news, but it is still helping me concentrate on my sewing!

Have a lovely weekend.

It's lovely when you start the ball rolling on a project. It means it soon gets finished. Lovely soft colours you have used.
