As several of you may know, I’ve been entering some of my makes into the Made It! Monthly Challenge hosted by Maryanne of Woolhogs. Absolutely anything can be entered – knitting, crochet, sewing, paper craft – you name it, it’s probably appeared at some point. At the end of the month there is the chance to vote for the items you most like/admire. When voting closes a winner is selected at random to receive that month’s prize and a voter’s choice award is given to the person with the most votes.
Well, last month I entered my Cosy Cowls and was lucky enough to be picked to win the prize!
I’ve been meaning to blog about it ever since, but school/life/Christmas meant that I just didn’t get round to it sooner. I’m now proudly displaying my ‘winner’ badge (on the bar to the right). There is still a very little time to enter for this month, or you could just wait until next month if you prefer. It’s a good bit of motivation to get something finished (although WIPs may also be entered) and it’s great seeing what other people are up to!
All month I’ve been planning to enter ‘May Made It’ over at Woolhogs. If you’ve not come across it, it’s a place where crafters from all over the world can show what they’ve been working on and at the end of the month vote for the items they like the most. A
random person is randomly chosen to win a lovely prize.
Anyway, it’s been in the back of my mind for weeks that I really ought to just get on and do something. But time has a sneaky habit of trickling away when you’re not looking, and suddenly it’s the end of the month and I haven’t done anything! This was highlighted by the fact that Maryanne just added a post with the title ‘May Made It – The last few entries….or are they?‘ I realised that I now only have a day left to get my act together – eek!!
So I’m going to scrap what I was originally going to enter (not literally – I’ll still keep working on various things and they may well end up as part of June’s Made It instead) and go with something that’s completely finished and properly photographed…
The Riverbed Blanket!
Scrolling through my photos this really stands out.
I think it’s partly the fact that I managed to take the photos on a sunny day.
But it’s also something that I’m really pleased with (wobbly edges and all).
And my friend enjoys it too – bonus!
Maybe next month I’ll be a little more organised.
Or perhaps there will be a very similar post in 30 days time…
I finally got my act together and joined in with Maryanne’s Made It challenge. Pop over to Woolhogs to have a look and join in yourself if you’ve been crafty recently 🙂
