Don't know how I've done - there were about 11 others there. One was a beautiful carousel horse. Will find out in about 1 hour. Will update the result. Took along one of mother-in-law's knitted dolls and entered it for her. She doesn't think it's very good. I'll take a photo later and you judge. I think they are amazing. Very professionally done - you can't see the stitching or anything. I've seen knitted dolls in craft shops that don't look this good. Hope she gets somewhere :0)

Reading: American Gods by Neil Gaiman
Finished Reading: Loyalty in Death by J D Robb, All the Dead Things by John Connolly

Playing: Luigi's Mansion, Majora's Mask and Wind Waker on my GameCube.
Majora is as frustrating as ever. I'm still trying to get into the Deku palace. I nearly made it and then the screen did that thing where it shrinks and becomes night of the 1st day. I fell off the platform and got thrown out :0(
Luigi is fun but my vacuum finger hurts...lol I'm on level 3 I think.
Wind Waker I've only just got as far as trying the first job on the ship - jumping to the platform and then to the rope. I fall of when trying to get to the second rope.

As for the other games that came with my GameCubes - did I say I bought 2 just to get the games? lol

Mario Double Dash - is okay but it's more for Bryan than for me. (this came with a disc that contained Ocarina of Time, Majoras Mask and one of the early Link for SNES)
Wave Rider - again more for Bryan than for me
Jedi Outcast - selling on Ebay as I just don't like fighting games. Plus, for some reason this one makes me feel sick.
Mario Party 5 - selling on Ebay. I hated this game on the N64 and this version is no different.
Crazy Taxi (got 2 of this one!) - selling on Ebay. It's crap. Nuff said.
Starfox Adventures - selling on Ebay. Not my type of thing.
Worms 3D - selling on Ebay. Cute but, again, not my thing.
Super Smash Brothers Melee - selling on Ebay. Fighting. Not my thing.

One of the cubes came with 3 clip on fascia - selling on Ebay....lol

Oh and the song stuck in my head? I'd like to thank tru2myart as I had a quick skim over the entry of 'bad songs' and that one got stuck. It's gonna be there all day but it's still better than the piece of music from Majora's mask when link is dancing with the Rosa sisters...lol He just looks creepy and pervy.

I didn't expect to win when I saw the carousel horse - it was even more impressive close up. I thought the flowers in the winning entry were far too square. She also did the one that came 3rd. I think the fact that she used text - and Welsh text, too - helped as it is much harder to do and keep tidy. Still, would have liked to have placed. I entered a knitted doll that my mother-in-law made and she came 1st - so she's thrilled.
