I first heard about The Umbrella Prints Trimming Competition in March.
Wow I thought I'll have a go at that !
The idea is you buy a pack of gorgeous trimmings , make something
from them , put them up and wait for thousands of people
to repin them from pinterest as each pin counts as a vote.
Sounds so easy doesn't it.......
I stuffed around for ages and never got to it but I
finally glued my trimmings
around little sewing spools a few weeks ago....
.....and then left them.
I then decided this morning I'd better do something with them
so I strung the spools onto thread with some lovely wooden beads.
Of course no one was home to take a photo for me so
I took one myself and you can see all my junk in the background.
Tough luck I thought .... I'll just get my entry in anyway.
So then I went to The Umbrella Prints Blog to get the address
to email my details to and discovered
entries closed four days ago !
This was all totally my own fault but I still had fun anyway.
(and I now have a pretty cool necklace)
