Same with our Spring challenge there were two categories. One for adaption and one for original.
Socks made by Ginnie titled "Bells and Bunting". "For me, flags and bells are the things that symbolise celebration - so these socks have both! They are also made from silk and a merino wool/ silk mix for extra luxury!" They were knitted on four needles using silk and silk/merino wool.
Isabel created the above cake (not edible sadly). It's is called a Christmas celebration cake and was knitted using wool.
Val did the above design. She said "A rose, or any flower, is used in celebration; I am always being asked to arrange flowers for weddings, birthdays, anniversary's, etc." She did a pastel study of a celebration rose.
Helen created the above scrapbook and she was another entrant who used the opportunity of the challenge to make a gift for someone. It's to celebrate the 50th Birthday of a great friend and is titled "Scrap-booking extravaganza". She used both imagination and love to put it together.
Dawn Marie entered the above card (I love the little stand). Dawn Marie said, "The celebration of the end of the summer and the gorgeous colours Autumn brings." She used card, design paper, die cuts, stamps, primacolour pencils and sansodor.
Carol won the prize for the original category. She said "The wallhanging is made to celebrate 2009 being the 30th anniversary of the Quilters Guild of the British Isles. The colours that are used in the Quilters Guild logo are purple and turquoise hence versions of these were used for the two background fabrics. Then a silvery pearlised white is used to depict the 30 'pearls' for the 30th anniversary which is denoted by gift of pearls." Carol hand stitched circles of fabric into squares and then stitched each square together. This is known as Japanese folded patchwork.
As you can see everyone put so much work into their entries. Both Joyce and myself had a difficult time choosing winners. If we could have everyone would have won. Big thanks to Joyce for helping out and she might even come back again to lend a hand next time.
