#CraftBlogClub challenge launch....

craftblogclub badge

We haven't had a challenge for a couple of months whilst we enjoyed the summer holidays, if you went away I hope you had a lovely break. Now the kids are back at school and we've had the last bank holiday until Christmas it's time to lift our moods and set a challenge.
 
It may only just be September but there is certainly a nip in the air and I have even been tempted to put on the heating! (But I have resisted so far) so as we put the BBQ away and find our winter boots at the back of the wardrobe the theme for this challenge is Winter! Thank you to @kay_O who came up with the idea of a winter theme following a chat about knitting on #CraftBlogClub. 

The rules....

1. There aren't really rules as you can interpret this theme how you like.  If you knit, crochet or sew, you may be inspired to make a winter garment/accessory or use a wintery colour palette to create something for a project of your choice.

I have set up a #CraftBlogClub Winter Challenge board on Pinterest to inspire you if you are stuck for ideas. If you would like to add your inspiration to the board let me know so I can add you as a pinner.
 
2. Present your lovely project in a blog post by 7th October. There will be a linky set up on THIS BLOG to showcase your makes and do take some time to have a gander at the other posts, it’s lovely to see some of the amazing creativity we have in our #CraftBlogClub!
3. Let us know how you’re doing throughout the month and use our #CraftBlogClub hashtag to keep up to date and also #WinterCBC.
I hope you will join in and I can't wait to see what everyone makes!!...

    1. Credit where it is due, it was your idea! I think you can do 2 it would make it a proper challenge! I'm glad you are looking forward to get started, I am too. I think I'll finish off the blanket I've already started and crochet a beanie to keep my head warm in winter! :-)
