Crochet Guild of America's Design Competition 2012!

(My Entries to the Competition Over the Years)
It is time for the Crochet Guild of America's annual design competition, and I am happy to say I was able to get an entry in. I was a little busy working on submissions for the past 2 months, and I wasn't sure I would be able to enter. I really hated to miss out on a great competition, so I set an interesting challenge for myself. I decided on what I was going to make, and then I only allowed myself to use pieces I had crocheted for past projects but not actually used in those projects. My entry was put together in a freeform manner, but doesn't look entirely freeform, because some of the same elements are repeated. I ended up putting things together, that I don't think I would have originally designed to go together. The result is surprising and wonderful. I can't wait to reveal it to you, after the award ceremony in Manchester, New Hampshire on June 28th, at the CGOA conference.

Here, are more details about the competition. You have until June 6th to get your entries in!
