Tour de Fleece Wrap Up - Prizes!

Although several of us are still pedaling to catch up, the Tour de Fleece is officially over and the group prizes have all been mailed so I thought I'd share.  

We have new project bags!  I love this design...but with several new additions since last year, it needed an update.  Thanks to Saint Tim, the Ts, Mrs. Pepperpot, Biscuit and Muffin are now all included.  It's a lightweight 10"x12" muslin bag, perfect for smallish projects...or your lunch. He also made us magnets and pins from the Biscuit and Muffin TdF ravatar design

I made a "big prize" for this year, too.  These are spinning contrast cloths and the one on the right was for the Punkin's Patch team and the one on the left was for the Meridian Jacobs team.  I picked some sheep that I thought matched some of MJ's sheep and the sheep on the PP cloth are Maisie, Count Chocula and Elizabeth, who were all spun as part of the Tour this year :-).

What exactly is a contrast cloth?  Well, if you were trying to spin some denim colored Elizabeth using your denim colored blue jeans as a back drop... would be much easier to see what you were doing if you were using a different colored background ;-).

Auntie Reg made the cloths and I painted the designs.  I think they are fun and useful and a nice way to finish off the 2017 Tour de Fleece.  Come join us next year!  We had a lot of fun :-).
