Nova Tour 5: Cristy, Sherri, & Ariane

July 10, 2017   /  / Categories :  Feeds

Today is the final day in the Nova Blog tour, and I truly feel sad about that! It’s been such a pleasure and honor for me to have been able to show so many stunning Nova’s by so many amazing bloggers. And we’re closing the tour in style, with three fantastic participants (and a truly unique, gorgeous prize in tomorrow’s give-away).

Let’s start with Cristy from I Love You Sew. I think that the first time I heard of Cristy, was when I saw this stunning duffle bag she made a few weeks ago. It is simply one of the most beautiful bags I have ever seen. Imagine my delight when I noticed that Cristy – who specializes in quilting and bag making – signed up as a candidate for my blog tour. Eeeek!  Cristy turned out to be a very sweet, funny, and open person, and I couldn’t be happier to link to her stunning Nova dress today. Make sure to visit her blog here, or perhaps her Etsy shop here.

Let’s stay in North America, and talk about Sherri from Thread Riding Hood. Canadian Sherri’s blog is one of those blogs which I have been following and admiring for a long time, but never really had the courage to ask to participate in a tour. Until I finally did ? Sherri is a super versatile seamstress, who sews a lot for her kids, but is also an amazing quilter. I’m regularly blown away by the close-ups of her quilting work – how does she manage to match up all those little corners so perfectly? I’m thrilled to have Sherri on the tour today, and I’m so in love with the beautiful Nova she made. Make sure to visit her blog, here.

And last but not least: Ariane from France. Ariane hosts a beautiful blog, Titichou, on which she showcases her sewing talents. Ariane sews for herself and her kids and, judging by her Instagram page, is also amazing at baking. Ariane accidentally skipped a step when she was making her Nova, so the neckline and honeycombs look a bit different than they usually do ?  Nevertheless, I truly adore the result. Make sure to visit Ariane’s blog to read all about it.



Many thanks to Cristy, Sherri, and Ariane for their beautiful Nova’s, and to Aude from Trois Petits Riens  for sponsoring this week’s give-away (check Instagram on Tuesday).

You can buy the Nova pattern in my shop, in English and Dutch, and in an electronic and a paper version.
