Almost a winner...

I entered the Crafty Brides' contest at with the things I made for Nikki's wedding. Though I didn't win, I made the website. This is the closest that I have ever come to being published and I was proud to see my name and her work on the computer. (blushing!)

Since I couldn't get the link to work, ( and it is not easy to get to) here is the verbiage of the winning entries:

Congratulations to Nancy T. from Menomonee Falls, WI, who was randomly chosen as the winner of our Crafty Brides Drawing and a $100 CreateForLess shopping spree! The craft tip she sent us was... "My son's new bride loves black and pink. We couldn't find something suitable for the table decorations, so I made 22 small quilts to fit the bill. The quilts are made using 4 strips (these are 2", but they can be made in a variety of sizes) into a strip set, then cutting 60% triangles, alternating the placement of the ruler. Combine the six triangles from each strip set to make one small quilt (sew three together twice, then join the halves). Layer with batting on the bottom, right side of quilt up, with backing right sides together with quilt top. Sew around the outside edges, leaving enough of the edge open to turn. Trim corners, turn right side out, press. Using a decorative stitch from your machine, stitch around the outside edge, then along each "round" until you get to the center. Everyone wanted one!" Here are more of our favorite crafty bride ideas submitted by customers. Thanks to everyone who entered!

They showed the photo of the table frames. I was proud of the effort.
