Well, that's going to be a small contest if it wins the theme.


I don't know it could be a really good idea. I will second it.

Seconded: multiple weaves


Craft isn't cheaper than therapy, but it's more fun.

This is a very constrictive contest theme. If someone seconds it, I will put it on the list. But it will severely constrict the participation of the contest...

Also, just to be clear, a pattern and a weave are two different things. Weaves are what's in the weaves library. Patterns are like "how to make a shirt using this certain pattern" or "here's how to make a basket just like mine". Smile

Well, we just had single ring size, why not single AR?

I like this idea. As mentioned previously not everyone may have colored rings, but isn't one of the ideas of these contests is to get people thinking in a different direction, trying something maybe they haven't tried before?
I'm new here so I am not entirely sure. I just know it's fun, and great, even if my puppy mail didn't win. (I blame it on the models attitude) LOL.

I have a suggestion just for Lorraine, and I'm sure some are going to be thinking "Nooo!! Don't encourage her!," but how about "cats."

I'm not so sure. Though it'd be a buzzkill, I think most people would just use a new variation of a current weave. Either way, we'd end up with a nice batch of new stuff, while most of what we see here is somewhat varying shapes and sizes of the same old same old.
