Go on - get on over to flickr and check out the amazing creativity. We've had heaps of positive feedback from everyone. Thanks! We really enjoy seeing your creations and love your enthusiasm.
Some housekeeping - if you've submitted pics but don't see them in the gallery would you please email them again to backtackATgmailDOT.com. If you haven't sent them yet, please do so and we'll update the gallery.
The next incarnation will be in April 2006. So keep your eyes peeled.
Check out the back-tack site for some inspiration for your BT creations. Remember it's preferred that your parcel ARRIVES with your partner by 30 October. Please don't post it the day before if you can help it. It's also considerate to email your partner and let them know the day you post it so they know to keep an eye out. Looking forward to seeing all your creations!!
Ok, ok. Some of you are pissed you missed the signups because we moved the goal posts on you, although this was unintentional. Fair enough. There's an offer on the table, please read this post at the back-tack site.
FINALLY! A eureka moment. I'd been having performance anxiety, but think I've worked out what I'll make Al. Wanna know! Ha, didn't think I'd make it that easy did you? To help, well not really, here's a sneaky peek at the fabric's I've chosen. I'd be surprised if you could figure it out.
EDIT- Oops. Apparently I get slapped 'cause I posted immediately after a new FO post. So please do continue reading after this post (or skip this silliness and go straight to the next post) and see Alison's amazing fairaisle jumper.
Do you think she'll notice I've highjacked her blog? She'll either laugh or get annoyed with me. I'm hoping it's the first. It's Nicole here (shameless plug for myself). Alison and I decided that as our blog birthday's both fall this month we'd do a joint thing, which involves doing some guest blogging on each other's blog. More detail soon, I'm not a complete hog. I'm sorry Al, the suspense was killing me. I know at the time of this posting you're in bed, I'm assuming you are anyhow, it's 1am where you are! I'm at the tail end of the final flickr gallery for this back-tack. It's looking really great, though there's quite a few more images due still. Better get back to it. Keep your eyes peeled for more hijinks in the next few weeks.
A little palm sized kitty cat pattern from a japanese craft book. The kitty is made from wool felt - which is really too thick for such a small object - and cotton dress. The cotton dress is a floral number with a matching light green gingham lining, and green velvet ribbon straps held on with green buttons. Her ears also have an inlay of cream and green floral fabric. She's about 7cms tall, and she likes kittycinos (a variation on a babycino except with loads more froth and cat crunchies on top) and mini m+m's.
