For a few years now, I have followed the blogs of 2 Norwegian quilters, Hanne and May Britt. For the last 3 or 4 years, they have a "Tour de Fibre" in the summer, where they stitch and sew and quilt and knit and generally catch up with unfinished craft projects. They invited me to join them, and this sounded like a great idea while I am convalescing! Although I am still very tired following recent surgery, and finding it difficult to concentrate on bigger projects, I decided to do a little bit of hand sewing to pass away the time! This kit has been in my stash for ages - it is called "Sew Laugh Love" and is by Leanne Beasley. I took it with me on a cruise to Norway last year, but didn't do very much - so yesterday I made a start on picking up where I left off. I'll give you plenty of updates on how I'm progressing - and hopefully by the time this project is finished, I'll be ready to tackle some bigger projects with my sewing machine! Oh and here is a peek of my progress so far this morning - stitching and eating breakfast in the sunshine!!
