Are you ready for Le Challenge?

In our pre-baby waiting hours, we dreamt up a new challenge open to all crafters – not just quilters, knitters or else. A theme would be set for all to interpret in their choice of crafty weapons.

Fast forward 3 months and we are ready to set the theme for the first Le Challenge on Friday 15. There is a blog, there is a button, and there are two lovely (huh huh) organisers with wild ideas about themes.

Le Challenge

So how does it work?

On the 15th of every month, we will set a new theme for you (and us) to be inspired by. 

Your homework should be in on 15th of the following month. One theme, one month. All crafts, sizes of projects welcomed, in fact the more varied the entries are the better.

To inspire you even more, some lovely sponsors will offer giveaways and every entry will be put in a draw.

So what do you reckon? Are you ready for your first Le Challenge? The theme will be announced on our blogs and Le Challenge blog.

We will be posting on Le Challenge regularly so be sure to check out the blog.

Follow along by clicking the RSS box in the address bar, click to be a google friend or sign up for emails in the box on the right.

Grab the button for your blog and help spread the word!

  1. It seems très très challenging indeed, even if ce n'est pas vraiment super clear about what nous serons challenged. Mais l'idée est very good, alors pourquoi not? If only pour le côté particulièrement bilingual de la thing. Et tant que les instructions de the challenge ne sont pas "1 inch squares & King size quilt", par exemple, each month... JJ

  15. p.s. does this mean one theme one month one project? Or if they are in different mediums can there be more than one? Gracias.

    1. You can make as many projects as you want, and they should be presented in one post (for one entry). Would be great to see how one person interpret the same theme through different mediums!

  16. HI, Your challenge has really inspired me to get started on something I've wanted to try for ages. Sorry to be a bit daft, but do I need to have a blog/website to enter? Or can I post photos of my entry elsewhere? Thanks, Jx

    1. It is going to work as a Linky party, I am sure you can submit the project whichever you want - not necessarily with a blog. Looking forward to seeing your project.
