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

Out of a Hat is Closing- Closed September 2013

Hello Everyone

Wonderful entries for our bunting challenge which celebrated our last challenge here though we have kept that a secret. 

Today we are announcing the closing of Out of a Hat Creations. All three of us have moved on and developed new interests in our craft journey. We find that time is becoming more and more precious to us so, after a lot of discussion, we decided it was the right decision for us to close as we do like to do our very best when we are crafting.

Thank you to all who have joined in with us and shown us their wonderful makes for the challenges or left comments.  Also a big thank you to all of our guest designers for their wonderful contributions.

It has been such a fantastic adventure having the challenges here each week, getting to know other crafters and to know each other as friends and not just as crafters. I'm sure we will keep in touch with many of you in Blogland and hope you have enjoyed the journey at the Hatters with us.

The Blog will stay just as it is for now so if you want to visit for ideas or inspiration you are welcome to do that.

Take Care 
with love from Janet,  Sandra and Chrissie xx

Awww what a shame, but all good things must come to an end at some point I guess.

I would just like to say thank you for inviting me as your last Guest DT, it was a privilege.

Thanks for all the comments and great challenges over the time you've been going - was great fun.

Hope to keep in touch via all your blogs.

Oh, I am sad. I know I have not been joining in of late but this morning I thought I would make the effort.
Can understand but I will miss you.
