At last!

I finally got my act together and submitted my entry to Rhonda's Recycled Craft Challenge. This original and entirely eco-friendly work of beauty and staggering genius (maybe not...) can be found in my shop, quick, snap it up before you miss out on a future classic!

Looking at the 'ingredients', I was tempted to make some kind of stitch holders, embellished with the beads, but the milk cap confused the heck out of me.

I decided on a container ship, but with a sail, on the high seas. After a burst of Eric Cantona-stylee inspiration, I added some security envelope seagulls. So maybe it's a trawler? Boats are not my area, no wonder I was fired from that shipping company I used to work for. And, yes, rain figures pretty highly in my everyday existence, so I couldn't miss that out.
There is a wide range of imaginative and eye-catching finished products in the flickr pool, so take a look!

Leave me a comment if you took part in the contest, or if you have a better idea for the components...
STOP PRESS: Turns out there are more procrastinators than me out there. Rhonda has extended her deadline!
