OK, so if you read Nova's blog you probably knew about this four weeks ago, but I'm blaming the children (that's what they're there for, right?) for me not posting about this little adventure at the beginning of the year.
At the end of last year, Nova approached me with an idea so brilliant that I said yes before we'd worked out a single tiny little detail. Some kind of challenge, she said. Involving scraps, she said. Liberty ones. I provide the scraps, she does the rest.
With that girl's love of scraps and my, ermm, scrap situation, I knew it would be a winning combination. And so, the Liberty Scrap Challenge 2012 was born!
Every month in 2012, I'm sending Nova a little parcel of scraps, or yardage, or whatever Liberty fabric I have kicking around and fancy sending over to her, and she is coming up with a selection of amazing projects.
First up (at least posting late means I get to show you what I'm talking about), she made the coolest wrapped wire word and miniature bunting. And, to top it off, she even made a tutorial so you can do it too. And as if that wasn't enough, she used some of the leftovers to make a rather fabulous sleep mask. I have convinced myself that she has made the mask because she is just desperate to fly over from the other side of the world to meet me. I think that's reasonable, don't you?
February's parcel should be arriving with Nova any day now, and no doubt she will produce something even more fabulous. If you want to keep up with the Liberty Scrap Challenge 2012, you can follow Nova or me (I'll update here when Nova posts her Challenges), or click on the button that I will put up in the sidebar just as soon as I work out how to do something technical like put a button in the sidebar.
If you feel like playing along with us, feel free to use your own scraps (Liberty is not compulsory, but we do love seeing any little Liberty remnants you might have!) or get some from me and come and join our Flickr group. We're very friendly!
As well as following Nova's blog for Scrap Challenge updates, you can also see all the challenges so far by clicking on a button that looks exactly like the one below, on the right hand side of my blog. Or by clicking here.
