and the universe shall decide ...

Faced with a seemingly impossible decision - I have done what I do best - reached for my favourite tea cup ... but instead of making myself a cuppa, I diligently wrote the names of all the Loz and Dinny Fringe Challenge participants on strips of paper in my bestest handwriting. You see I came over all stressed ... I couldn't decide and then it dawned on me ... it's not because I'm a Libran .. it's just, well, I loved them all. You can't compare apples with pears. You can't judge a superhero outfit against a cowboy. You can't distinguish between a tot, a bag and a purse. You can't shed light on a lampshade or a crown or a rosette. It is against the laws of algebra ... gotta group the x's with those y's. So I decided the best method was to pop those diligently written paper strips that Mrs Bailey my Year 5 teacher would have given me a lead pencil award for ... and I got the small to draw out the winner...

Kylie ... your pressie will be winging its way to you on Monday.... and I just want to take a moment to say thank you all and sundry for taking part in my humble challenge - I have just loved it and am secretly planning another one ... watch this space... BIG CRAFTY LOVE to you all xxx

Hurrah for Kylie, and a good time was had by all Gemma, thank you! I'm with you, wouldn't have been able to decide at all. There were so many great ideas and interpretations...

Good on you. You passed the hardest part. Love your analogy to algebra. Can't wait for the next one. And very happy for 3 sheets and her gorgeous embroidery.

Yah for Kylie. And Yah for you too Gemma for coming up with such a great idea and making us all think of such different and cool things to do with the trim.

Thank goodness for the Universe. That sort of decision would have sent me into several conniptions. Way to go Kylie - and gorgeous dress. And thanks to you too - thoroughly enjoyed myself once I'd got over the terrified bit...

Wow, that's one funky use of The Fringe! I think I would've struggled to pick a winner too.

There's no way you could have chosen a winner from all those entries. You did what any sane person would do, let some one else (or some thing else) decide! Brilliant.
