Beautiful bags @BlueCat . It'll be hard to choose at voting time.

By the end of today (UK time) everybody who wants to take part should have their entry post up. So far we have 10 entries  :)
I'll put the voting thread up tomorrow.  :toast:

I think I'd be better off with only 2, maybe 3 tops as for the voting. It's going to be a bear no matter what but it might be less time consuming for Manuela. Or not, it is tallied by the computer isn't it?  0_0


@Manuela , thank you for this and the other contests you've put together (that I've yet to enter). I've really enjoyed them, the lovely things that have been made and I've gotten some great ideas for some new projects when I finally can sit down and sew again.

Thank you all for your kind comments about the bags.  I am still ‘practising’ my bag making skills. 
I will probably keep the middle bag, as it’s the perfect size for holding essentials on our weekly walks, and donate the others to a local Church for their annual fund raising.

I have voted but it was a bit like sticking a pin in the list. I could happily have voted for any two of them - the standards are so high. Apologies to anyone I didn't vote for - they are all excellent!

Although I'm an entrant, I have cast my votes, and I promise I didn't vote for myself  :P

As usual, there were at least 4 entries I wanted to vote for!  But I have gone for the two which I think really 'went for it'.
Well done everybody, they are all very fine projects!

Like @Mr Twingo I've voted, but not for myself, there are much better entries than mine.

I hasten to add I would never vote for my own!

I too have voted, and as above, would never vote for myself. Very difficult to choose between all the other clever and talented entrants.
