This blog was thought up by a group of friends who met on another challenge blog that closed. We missed the challenges there and decided that it would be nice to challenge each other by collecting ideas and putting them all into a hat to draw one out each week as a challenge. Now Closed as a challenge blog but here for inspiration for now

Challenge 75

Welcome to the Hatters Everyone and a new challenge

Lovely masks and stencils makes last week with wonderful ideas to inspire.

This week the theme is 'A pennant or Bunting'. Pennants are always great to make and Bunting looks good on all sorts of things so let your imagination run free and make anything you like so long as it has either or both of these on it.

To go and find out more about what we made just click on the names under the pictures.

This is the last project where we will have Sam with us as our guest so a huge thank you to her-we have loved seeing your makes Sam and I am sure they inspired others as well.

Challenge 71-Numbers

Hello to all our friends and followers and we hope you have had a good week. It seems to have flown by and we hope you are ready to join us in a new challenge.

This time of year is always slow in the craft world as people are on holiday or just enjoying being outdoors but it is always nice to have you join in with us. The Patchwork projects were really lovely and I am sure everyone who saw them admired the makes.

The theme for this week is Numbers so you can make anything at all with something to do with numbers on it-lots to think about with this subject so we look forward to seeing what you make of it.

As we say bye bye to Valerie and a big 'Thank You' to her for the beautiful makes in July--we welcome Sam who is joining us for August. I am sure many of you visit Sam's blog and wonder how she fits everything in so we say a big 'Thank You' to Sam for fitting in crafting with us as well.

Here is what Sam says about herself :

Hi, my name is Sam aka Sam21ski. I’ve been crafting for quite a while now and like anything distressed and grungy.  I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials and am willing to give anything a go!!
My favourite colour is green, closely followed by brown and I am a great admirer of T!m Holtz.  I also love all stuff PaperArtsy too!!
I have a 6 year old bearded collie called Fraser and a partner of over 20 years called Martin.  They both put up with my antiques on the dining room table, as this is where I craft.
We love to take an annual trip to either USA or Canada in the winter for a skiing trip, hence where the ski comes from in my username.
If you want to find out more about me, see what I’ve been up to or get in touch, you’ll find me here http://sam21ski.blogspot.co.uk/

These are the projects we made for 'Numbers' and if you click on the name under the pictures you can go to our blogs and learn more about what we made
