Tando Challenge - Ice White

Day 3, 2012, and my Resolution to keep my blog active is going strong! LOL!!  My first blog challenge of 2012 is over at Tando Creative Challenge where the theme is Ice White - ooooh, perfect for a post-Christmas theme.  And here is my pic before I go into a long explanation:
I took my inspiration from the photograph for the theme.  I know Christmas is over but I'm actually feeling like I want to start getting ready for next Christmas!!  In the summer I bought myself Tone Finnangar's Sew Pretty Christmas Homestyle because I just fell madly in love with the projects she makes.  One of those projects is the most adorable vintage-style boots and ice skates.  Well, not being a stitcher I thought I would be content to just gaze and "Oooh......Aaaaah..." my way through the book, but I wasn't!  I dug my sewing machine out and had a go at a couple, then I did a couple more, until eventually lots of my friends found they had one in their Christmas stocking!!  Then yesterday I came across the Tando blog and found their Ice White challenge so I decided to make this for the theme.  It's the first Ice Skate I've made and I've discovered I'm going to need a touch more patience if I am to make more! LOL!!

Hope you like it!  Thanks for stopping by! :o) xx
