images of 2013 tree jumper

‘Tis Jumpers and Jazz in July season. The tree jumpers are installed and the winners have been announced. This week was simply INCREDIBLE for me. On Tuesday I was informed that my entry into the World of Wearableart (WOW) 2013 has made it in to the show. Friday night brought the announcement that my tree jumper entry was named the winner of the Excellence in Knitting/Crochet section for Jumpers and Jazz in July. I can only express my complete and utter shock on hearing my named called. The standard of work this year is absolutely incredible. There are some simply stunning entries. With both my phone and camera batteries both drained, I struggled to capture all the beauty. I did snap two of my faves. Follow the link to the Warwick Daily News tree jumper gallery to see more

These are 3 of my favourites….

Thank you Jumpers and Jazz for filling my heart and confidence with warmth. I am humbled and grateful for the recognition.

I have absolutely NO IDEA what to do for next year. The cogs are turning and I will start work on it in a couple of months…

 

 

Zombie apocalypse hits Monster lab!

It’s true.

I have become completely obsessed with zombies, and Voodoo Dolls for that matter. I have a selection available to adopt within my in.cube8r space.

If you can’t get in to in.cube8r please let me make one especially for you. Click here for a Zombino and here a Voodoo Baby.

Each of these pretties are in my cube RIGHT NOW!!

I have also developed a reversible range. You get a Zombie on one side. Flip it inside out and you get a Voodoo skull, or a Braaain, or a human, or several other surprises!
