Thank you all for your much appreciated, thought provoking feedback and comments in response to the question I asked about the Made It Challenge’s winner procedure – I love that you all took a little time to give it some thought.
I am still mulling over one of two things BUT am pretty sure I know what I’m going to do….but you will have to wait until the start of next month’s challenge to hear all about it. (Yeah I know, I know, I mean like that). June’s Made It is going to be lots of FUN and I will launch our “same same, but different” challenge just after the winner of May is announced. This month’s winner will be randomly drawn on the 31st so there’s still a good few days to get your LINK in!
The reason I have been holding off with telling you what the prize is….is because I am waiting for a delivery. In the meantime, here is a clue!
Right, as always, let’s get busy ooooohing, ahhhhhing and wowing! Look how awesome the collection is looking for far…
(I’m still waiting for InLinkz to make it possible to insert the live collection into the blog – if anyone knows if it can be done, I want to hear from you!!)
Heehee I absolutely LOVE this deliciously cute Faery HedgePig by Joan of Just Joan – this is my kind of toy…that hair!!! This is Joan’s first entry into the Made It, woohooo! Make sure you go and visit her blog & say hello – its filled with all things crochet & colour…
Another newcomer to the Made It but no stranger to us crochet bloggers is the wonderful Tamara of Crochet with Tamara!!!! Tamara’s blog has got to be one of the most heartwarming one’s I’ve come across – so down-to-earth and generous. It’s truly an honour to be given such a glimpse into one’s everyday life. And can she crochet!!!!! Just check out these Pom Poms...
*** WARNING ***
Do.Not.Click.On.This.LINK…unless of course you are seated, have lots of time, have good craft-self-esteem and someone to pick your jaw up off the table. All I’m going to say is…..that hair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *SQUEAL*
(ps. Oh and Melissa,…Jonah is not playing with the doll, he’s going to clone her into his future wife!!)

…and while we are on the subject of head-spinners! I am a bit gobsmacked at what Mtetar can do with jeans!!!! Once again, I find myself daydreaming about being able to sew – I have tons and tons of old jeans around just waiting to be transformed! Please make sure you visit Projects by Mtetar for not only more info on this fine skirt, but also a load more magically made items!
And there you have it!
