July Made It challenge – My bad…there’s still time!!!

Oops, I rushed home tonight after being out to dinner with my family (and if you believe that you’ll believe anything!) to write this post because I thought that voting began at midnight. Turns out I’m 24 and a bit hours ahead of myself – ANOTHER WHOLE DAY – and the link only closes tomorrow at midnight – so please consider this as your early reminder to crack open the VOTING when you get there!

I have two more entries to introduce before the link closes…


Colourful Crochet Cardi by Janette

Honestly, this is what I love most about the Made It challenge…. This pic was sent to me by one of my Facebook page fans, Janette Law-Brown who crocheted this BEAUTIFUL colourful cardi! Most of us bloggers are used to making/sharing/chatting/sharing/creating/sharing, you know,  basically being a part of a fabulous community of like-minded folk. I love that we are recognising and appreciating each others work while out here in the open for all to see!!!! Thanks so much Janette and I hope you get to see how much you’ve inspired us ♥

Fingerless Mitt for Dad by Kaiserin

And while we are on the topic of inspiration – actually, we are always on the topic of inspiration – this soft, warm fingerless Mitt was made by the sweet Kaiserin of Empress27 from HER OWN HAND SPUN YARN! PROPS to you girl!!!!  The wool is from Shetland fleece and a Massam fleece – how cool! The Mitt is one half of a pair being knitted for Dad and I’m sure we’ll get to see a pic of both of them when they are complete!
