  128. I give my precious vote to pop-i-cok.The little creations are so individual and happy and hearted,and chewable for teething babies,and.. and.. and.. but I found things Iiked about each finalist's work, that's why i cheekily asked if I could vote ten times. Flamehair deserves a vote for her practical use of the trimmings, the 'A' is admirable : the intricate embroidery is stunning, the cushion and co.are........ I could go on but all in all excellent choices for the 10 finalists.
    Amen!
