#AtoZchallenge 2021 theme reveal ♻️

Allez hop, c’est parti pour ma 3ème participation au challenge !
Let’s go for my 3rd time involved in the challenge! As my blog is bilingual, I write first in French, then in English. Look for the green and italic text for English!

Cette année encore je participe au challenge de A à Z, qui consiste à poster sur son blog, chaque jour d'avril sauf le dimanche, un article par lettre. On commence donc jeudi 1er avril avec la lettre A, puis vendredi 2 avec la lettre B, etc. Ça tombe bien, en dehors des dimanches, il y a 26 jours en avril 😋

This year again I participate in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge: it's about blogging every day during April except Sundays, one post per letter. We begin on Thursday, April 1st with the letter A, then on Friday, 2nd with the letter B, etc. Great news, except Sundays, April has 26 days 😋

26 jours : un jour pour chaque lettre de l'alphabet, thématiquement de A à Z. Le but de cet article est justement de révéler mon thème 2021.
Allez visiter le site officiel du challenge pour prendre connaissance des autres thèmes révélés, il y en a beaucoup, et susceptibles d'intéresser tout le monde !

26 days--one day for each letter of the alphabet, thematically from A to Z. The purpose of this post is precisely to reveal my 2021 theme.
Head over to the official site for the other revealed themes of this Blogging from A to Z Challenge. There are so many entrants and a topic to interest everyone!

  • En 2019, j'avais écrit une petite encyclopédie sur le thème du quilting et du patchwork. A comme Appliqué, B comme Binding ou biais de finition, C comme Celtique, etc.
  • In 2019, I had written a small encyclopedia on the theme of quilting and patchwork. A is for Appliqué, B is for Binding, C is for Celtic, etc.

  • Cette année, je vais rester dans l'univers du textile, mais avec une approche recyclage, réutilisation et valorisation. Plein de bonnes idées de bricolage facile ! ♻️
  • This year, I will remain in the world of textiles, but with an upcycling, recycling and repurposing approach. Lots of good easy DIY ideas! ♻️

Un défi pour vous aussi ! / A challenge for you too!

ET je vais vous demander de participer aussi pendant le challenge de A à Z, comme suggéré par les membres de l'équipe ! Il s'agit de partager ses réalisations textiles ici sur mon blog, en fonction de la lettre du jour. Chaque jour, une link party sera ouverte pour vous permettre de lier un article de blog, ou simplement poster une photo.
  • A comme...
  • B comme...
Alors, qui est avec moi ?

PLUS I'm going to ask you to participate also during the challenge A to Z, as suggested by the team members! The idea is to share your textile projects here on my blog, according to the letter of the day. Each day, a link party will be open to allow you to link a blog post, or simply post a photo.
  • A is for...
  • B is for...
So, who is with me?

*If you were looking for the Patchwork & Quilts link-up, it's on the last post: Link party: Patchwork & Quilts #42, or the new one: Link party: Patchwork & Quilts #43.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

I like the pocket phone idea - one I would like is an idea on how to attach that pocket temporarily on a pair of pants that has no pocket so one can carry the phone with them

Oooo going back to read your 2020 posts. Got you on my Feedly now. Here is my info.

I don't know if I will be able to do that, (sharing projects) but I will definitely read and comment as and when I can.

Marti a dit…
I don't think I could think of 26 things to write about on a single theme. One year, a set a goal of posting every day for a month and it was tough even though I could write about anything at all. Good luck with your April, I'm looking forward to seeing your posts.
Looking forward to what upcycling crafts you write about during the challenge. I'm doing a craft oriented A to Z this year myself. It's so much fun. Weekends In Maine

I'm happy you are joining again! And with such a fun theme too! :)

Cathy Kennedy a dit…

This sounds like a fun theme, and I love that you write in two languages. This will give me a chance to practice my rusty French! Good luck with the challenge this year / Bonne chance! :D

I know several quilters, and quilts can be so beautiful as an art form. Our library used to display local quilt art from time to time. I look forward to reading some of your posts. Good luck!
Our Eyes Open a dit…
This is a great topic. My grandmother was a quilter and I still have several of the ones she made with so much love. My hubby uses recycled wood and driftwood to build bird feeders. Great idea! :)
Andrea a dit…
Sounds useful, I'll check out your ideas!

Your theme sounds good. I like upcycling, recycling and DIY, it sounds quite creative. Good luck with the challenge.

Have a lovely day.
Good to see you again. Your theme sounds really interesting, best of luck with it.

My theme reveal!
Carrie-Anne a dit…
I'm a huge proponent of reusing and repurposing things. Too many people these days just throw away items that wear out, rip, or break, instead of repairing them or finding a different use.
Sonia Dogra a dit…
Wish you luck! I have just started to recycle and reuse and will drop by to see what you have to offer.
Srivalli Rekha a dit…
Such a wonderful theme you've picked for the year. Looking forward to learn a few DIYs from your posts. I'll have to hunt around the house to see if I can join the additional challenge. This is going to be informative and fun. Good luck. :)
Oh, I love the sound of this. I like the idea of repurposing, although I don't do it much. Can't wait to read! :)
Bonjour Frédérique, j'ai bien hâte de te suivre. Est-ce que tu sais si on peut participer à ce challenge par Instagram? C'est peut-être quelque chose que je pourrais faire. J'ai vérifié dans InLinkz et il est possible de lié une photo Intragram au party. Ca serait beaucoup de plaisir et moins de travail.... à bientôt.
Oh oui Andrée, c'est tout à fait possible ! Tu peux participer à mon challenge dans le Challenge (celui que je propose "We want you!", et lier une photo d'IG), mais aussi directement dans le AtoZ Challenge !
Tu peux lier ton blog sur cette page avec un post pour annoncer ton thème (et continuer sur IG ensuite je pense) : sign up for the Theme Reveal with this form
J'ai hâte de voir tes créations par ordre alphabétique ;)
