  1. I think I said this on your last round-up post too, but you have a great range of me-made outfits to draw on – and I really love your colourful Coco and Crazy horses Anna!! Your Owls are a great colour too, you’ll surely get lots of wear out of them.

  2. Well done for getting to the end! I don’t think your handmade collar can be classed as cheating, you still made it!
