some crafters just know when to stop and some winners


I made my hanging basket decoration last year
and I was in love with it from the moment I hung it up .

I saw in a magazine recently where they joined two
baskets together and threaded lights through it .
Of course that would be far too simple for me so
I decided to cover the baskets with
 tinsel first and then the lights .
It now looks like I have a big tangled mess
of tinsel with a few lights .
In my house it has been called The Thing
and a few other not very nice names .
At least I tried .
This also may be why Oprah hasn't called .


On to the winners of my 300 post giveaway .
The Sew a Metre book goes to Chookyblue .
The fat quarters go to Samelinas Mum
The pattern goes to Marble Rose

Ladies please email me with your details .

Thanks to everyone for entering and visiting .

Seeya tomorrow !

OMG how exciting.....a good spin to a wet flooded week........(and the thunder rumbles in the back ground threatening more rain).........
No rush on posting the mail won't be delivered for a week or more...........i'll only get it if I go to town..........when I can possibly get there who knows......

Thanks heaps........

love the ball hangings but yes the tinsel is a bit of a mess...........does it look nicer in the dark???

The concept of this beautiful craft work is superb. I loved the hanging basket especially those colorful balls hanging from the basket. I think if you could have used some hanging stars here, then I might look much better and would be ideal for the upcoming Christmas season.

Samelia's Mum said...

Congrats to the winners. I think your awesome creativity is clearly unappreciated by your family Clare.

Less tinsel next time perhaps...or more lights?

Cyndi said...

Oh Clare, you are so funny! Keep trying...I'm sure Oprah will call soon! :o)

A big congratulations to all the winners...enjoy those wonderful prizes, ladies!

XOXO,

Cyndi
