I have not been blogging recently as I have been getting ready for my International Basketball tournament. All the gifts people made have been gone to the athletes and they are busy playing.
Leading up to the championship I posted some countdown photos. I have made a video of the photos but will explain the meaning to you.
Day 7: At my day job we have a reindeer who is part of the team and I dressed him up with a basketball vest. I was wearing a handmade top from a pattern called Sorbetto by Colette Patterns.
Day 6: These were some of the basketballs that didn’t get made into cufflinks for gifts to athletes.
Day 4: This photo has four of the different gifts given to the athletes at the European Wheelchair Basketball Championships
Day 3: Pin badges are always exchanged at international basketball tournaments and these three pins are from the major championships held in the West Midlands.
Day 2: I love beads and being able to convey a message with them was great fun.
Day 1: Mandeville was the mascot from Paralympics 2012 and there was a number of silver charms available so I got a basketball.
The tournament went well and the video can be watched here. The music I used in the video was called “Many Hands” and I would like to thank many hands who made gifts, I really appreciate your help.
