TWO big things are happening in my creative world.
TWO big things are happening in my sports-watching world.
THING ONE--Traci Bunkers, a fiber dyer and creator of some note has invited folks of similar mindedness to join her in July for "30 Days of Get Your Art On." The idea is to spend at least 30 minutes a day for the next 30 days on art of some kind and to blog, or not, about what you've done. I'm including spinning and weaving in my definition of art (you should too) and playing along. Actually, my spinning will involve working with Traci -dyed fibers.
THING TWO--Tour de Fleece is an event on Ravelry that runs coincident with the Tour de France. The idea is that spinners of yarn actually spin on every day during the Tour de France. Folks join ridiculously-named teams and post photos of what they've done. There are contests and prizes--fun for all!!!
And, that brings me to . . .
THING ONE -- Tour de France, Tour de France, Tour de France, Tour de France, Tour de France. Need I say more? This year includes my FAVORITE event: the Team Time Trial which is essentially ballet on bicycles--beautiful!! You can (and should) watch it on Sunday 7-3 at 7:30 am.
THING TWO-- Womens World Cup is being played during the month of July. If you know me you know that the choice of watching a World Cup match live or watching a Tour stage live is not one I'll easily make. Kelly says this places me firmly on the sports lunatic fringe.
