Bags of fun challenge update

I have just noticed the ticker for the bags of fun challenge that Sharlee has on her Blank page with a few scribbles

I have just put one on the guidelines page. You can get them from the ticker factory. I found the one I used in the countdown to a special event section. It’s a bit of fun but also a very handy reminder to any event that involves a countdown. I have often spotted tickers used in textile practioners sidebars to gauge the progress of large projects.

Life at work is still busy but this weekend I will post another work in progress image of my bag. Take a look at the Bags of fun flickr group as bags are shaping up and taking form. I plan to do a round up on the weekend as to what people have been doing and a full general update for as you can see its only two months until the deadline of Novemeber 8th.

Bags of fun challenge news

Aronela left a comment to say that she is interested in the bags of fun challenge. So I am waving hello to her and welcoming her in to the group.

I have done very little stitching on my bag as life at work has been busy and on top of that I have been head down tail up working on a web site. I hope towards the end of the week to post another work in progress image of my bag. Do to take a look at the Bags of fun flickr group as people over there have been far more productive than myself. It’s become a morning fix to see what has been posted and then check out my favourite blogs.

Bags of fun challenge buttons

Apart from gadding about the globe day dreaming of avoiding the washing and housework I have just made some buttons for the challenge which people are free to use as they choose. You will need to copy them ie right click and save the image or if you are on a Mac drag and drop to the desktop. Load them on your site with a link to the challenge page. This is the page on which I have stated the guidelines and listed all the people who are participating so people can browse their sites. The URL for the link is

You don’t need to include a button your site it is just that some people asked for a button so here they are in a number of sizes so you can choose which ever one you like.

70 pixels wide

80 pixels wide

100 pixels wide

and a huge one 120 pixels wide

So take your pick!

Don’t forget to take a look at the Bags of fun flickr group as many of the people involved in the challenge are chatting as their bags take shape. Now I am off to get that darned washing and housework under control then the weekly shop – don’t you just love Saturday morning jobs? Perhaps if I am good I will have time to stitch!
