So who won then?

Ok I admit it, my last "competetion" wasn't the most cleverly arranged one. I guess I acted before I thought. It seemed like a fun idea at the time.
Anyway, it ended up a draw. Between Rebecca Andersson and Erin Prais-Hintz. Read my comments on my last post to know how I thought. Erin and Rebecca, please contact me with your addresses so I can send you a little something surprise.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend! I'm gonna meet my wonderful 15 year old god-daughter tomorrow, and on Sunday me and my family are going to a party, and I hope to go by the library also (Conrad needs books, he reads like crazy and is constantly out of books although he borrows from the school library aswell), and to the crafts shop to buy some stuff. Been thinking I shall try crocheting with rags, and myself do those bowls I blogged about a couple of days ago. And I thought I would do this with my children aswell. We would use old clothes, sheets and other fabrics and cut rags from them, have looked at a lot of tutorials.

I also plan to finish off two jewellery pieces I have been working on but which I keep running into obstacles with. It's made me rather upset that I am so unskilled and still unexperienced about clever ways of assembling jewellery in some ways. It is like I have to invent the wheel again. I can get a bit tired of myself. No standard solutions. No special it has to be. "It MUST look like that". "Must NOT be a gap there". "That thing HAS TO sit in front of that one". Or "These three strands has to come together here, and then this bead shall sit right next to them without it looking clumpsy." First I decide what I want it to look like. Then I have to solve how I shall do it. Wish me good luck on that please! (Honestly I was crying earlier today about my failure-ing. PMS might have had something to do with it, but anyway ... )

Again have a lovely weekend,

Yay!! Totally exciting! I thought that pendant looked Round Rabbit-esque but wasn't totally convinced...should have gone for it with my guess! But is nice to be a joint winner with Erin. Thanks Malin!
