Hi everyone,

Sorry for the delay, but here is the link to the Contest Winners Project page incase anyone is still interested: http://www.vannaschoice.com/2011Winners.html

I've been away from crocheting for the past little while and I just recently got back to making projects. Again, sorry for the delay!
I have to say, that Christmas Chess Set looks awesome!! Totally tells me that I still have a lot to learn to improve my skills for crochet.  Tongue


During the end of January this year, I entered myself into the 3rd annual Vanna's Choice contest and I won third prize!!!  Grin It was a knit/crochet contest, and I really did not hope for much since I felt like I had rushed the project a lot.  I was notified during April that I was selected as a finalist for the contest and just this past Thursday, I received an email telling me that I got third prize!  Considering how this was the very first contest I have ever entered in my life, I was very happy indeed.  Cheesy Anyways, enough said, here's what I made:

I call it The Strawberry Clock Hamster Garden. =) Some of you may recognize the two pom pom hamsters on it since I had previously posted them in another Craftster post, I think.  This project measures approximately 14" x 11" x 9", made free-style.  

Anyways, just thought I'd share my little project with the Craftster community.  Smiley  For anyone who's interested in knowing more about my project, you can read more and view more photos of it on my blog: http://jcy-works.blogspot.com/2011/06/third-prize-strawberry-clock-hamster.html

Hope you all like my project!!! =)

I believe the contest website will be posting up photos of the projects made by all winners later this month or in July. I will add the link to it to this post once I see them up! (I'm very curious of the projects made by the other winners, too ~  Tongue )

Third prize, congratulations! Smiley You have done a great job and I think you really deserve the prize. I absolutely adore it and would love to own something like that!
You have obviously took your time to make all the details. I love how the tree is and the mushroom clock reminds me of Smurfs and their houses. Cheesy

I'd definitely like to see the other entries also but this rocks! Wink
