My major project...revealed!

Well, I promised you all the juicy details on the "teaser" pics I've been showing, and here they are! But first, a few more "teasers" to pique your curiosity some more :0)

Here's an especially lacy, spiral scrumble, with a hint of fuzzy green. Hmmm...what could it be?


Here's a bit more of the picture. Any ideas yet? No?


Here's the project from a different angle. Getting the picture yet?


By now you should have some ideas..:0)


And one last peak before I reveal all.....


Have you guessed yet? Yes, it's my entry for the CGOA (Crochet Guild of America) Design Contest held in NH at the Knit and Crochet conference July 24-27 ! (Sorry about the partial pics. I couldn't fit it all in the lens :0) I promise when my entry is returned in the next couple of weeks that I will try to get better pictures of it:0) and it's ribbon.



It's called "Tranquil Ocean" a free form look at life under the Sea.


Did my mention of a ribbon catch your eye? Are you curious yet? What did it win?!... Well, as a matter of fact, I was informed that it won "People's Choice Award" !! I was so shocked you could have knocked me over with a feather!

My 9 yo daughter told me this has to be hung on the wall along with it's corresponding ribbon :0)

I'm really glad I purchased Myra Wood's book "Creative Crochet Lace: A Free Form Look at Classic Crochet". It showed me that free form isn't scary after all:0) Now I can't wait to do more of it!

It's Gorgeous!!!! I love the little turtle! It should be hung on the wall and admired for the art that it is. Congratulation on this fantastic project!

This is the most fabulous crochet piece I have ever seen. Really!! I am on the hunt for the book too. I need to do some crochet!
What an inspiration. No longer will I think of toilet paper doll covers when I think of crochet! I haven't thought that lately mind you because there is so much more available in crochet now.
Keep it up. Can't wait to see your next endeavor!
I'm adding your blog to my google reader.
