Recommended Posts

Just checking on the date the challenge closes to see how much more time we have :) Oh and bumping it up - took me a while to find the post!

I have sooooo much to do to my entry yet!

Here is my garden inspired entry, a 3d hanging basket. Think of midsummer (not the place where the murders take place) with the bees buzzing in and out of the flowers and butterflies flitting around in the sunshine. I have added pelargoniums,clematis,trailing fuchsias, violets, violas in the top of the basket and a wild flower which is creaping around the chains of the basket.

Thank you Linda, the pelargoniums, fuchsias and clematis are from a book of knitted/ crochet flowers but the rest I made up as I went along. Keep a sketch book where I jot down ideas of what I want to make, sometimes they work out and sometimes they don't. I did the background of the picture in Tunisian crochet but wouldn't do so again as it isn't dense enough and if you look close you can see the canvas underneath.
