Forgive me if I have been remiss in getting back to everyone who has commented in the last week or so. Needless to say, I will try to catch up on the computer stuff, but it is soooo hard to fit in when the creative juices are flowing. And at the moment, they are!
OK, let's get the business out of the way. There were five commenters (both here on blogger and at the hive) and I numbered you in time and date order.
The winner was number 4 which is Connie Haskell from creating the hive, whose address I have, so I will be sending six fat quarters out to you asap!
Now down to the creative stuff!
Remember last Monday I was beginning a collage made from recycled bits and pieces.
I think you might all have an idea of my theme, now. Lisa you were right with the money!
Next, I added a plastic ring, secured by alternating red and blue stitches.
The flower in the centre is made from one large washer with six smaller washers arranged over the top of it. In this picture, there is nothin in the centre. I took the centre out to get a good scan.
Since the blocks are generally in sets of four, I have more of each of these two, in other colour combinations and then another two sets to finish.
The blocks are about 3 1/2 inches, so the whole piece will probably be about 16 inches square, depending on how much space I leave between the blocks on the backing.
Oh, and I forgot - the thread I am using is from one of my waste bags from embroidery, so even that is recycled!
Congrats Connie, I'll be heading to the PO tomorrow, which is craft group day at our community house and hopefully I'll have another giveaway before Christmas!
