Well, a big thank you to all my new followers! I have 17 now, very excited, thanks to a few kindly souls who joined and told others about my giveaway too! I wasn't sure about this blogging lark, but now find myself thinking when I am making something - "ooh, can put this on the blog...". Look out for a coming post about laser cutting perspex, riveting silver and perspex together, and the merits of graphics tablets....
Onto the giveaway - A question from Niftyknits was - how would I know who had arrived at my blog via a recommendation? - well, I hadn't really thought about that one...but I guess if you follow me via someone else, then if you could send me a comment mentioning their name, then I know to add them into my hat a few more times! Nifty, you get in my hat three times so far - well done and thank you!
Right, better get making that gift - I thought I might have a couple of weeks, but actually think it might not take that long to get to the magic number!
Question for you all though, potential gift wnners that you are...I am going to make a lovely cuff for the prize...using some suffolk puffs with a contrasting fabric in the centre. Now I have two colours of silk dupion, both gorgeous - which should I use?
The teal blue, with flashes of green - gorgeous (and the fabric that my bridesmaids' dress was made from) or the pale green with a gold sheen - also gorgeous! (a sari donated by a parent from school) both lovely and can't decide!
hmm...not sure how well they photograph...
Answers on a virtual postcard - the cuff will get made sometime this week I hope! I will anounce the winner as soon as I get to 25 and will post a piccy of the cuff. I am planning to make lots more and put them on www.folksy.com too - am going to be designing one soon as a corsage/cuff for a friend to wear to a wedding - so keep em peeled!
