I've never entered a whiplash competition, have you? Finally this month I thought I'd give it a try, but then the "alternative materials with traditional techniques thing" threw me off a little. Then I thought of something I'd made that would actually fit the theme. This cute little old lady bag I knit using lace I found in my church basement last year. It knit up really quickly and I also knit in a strand of fake pearls. It's so cute and dainty (and so not-me). I've only used it once. I'm really a jeans and sweatshirt type of girl. And when I dress up, I wear a dressy shirt, but somehow still wind up wearing jeans on the bottom.
Unfortunately, I can't enter this in the whiplash competition. I didn't make it in the last 2 weeks. I made it over a year ago. I was thinking maybe I could pretend that I'd just made it, but I already blogged about it. I cannot tell a lie. Oh well. Maybe next month? Maybe not....
I'll be inundated with houseguests for the next week or so, so I'll be lucky if I can sneak off to craft or catch up with my blog peeps. I'm feeling the withdrawals already. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
p.s. Dana of Deep Run Days and Cindi of Cindi's Sewing have both made cloth shoes using the tut. Hee hee. I'm so tickled. If you've made any, please let me know so I can go have a look. :)
