We Have a Winner

I know you forgot I offered a contest here. Initially, I said I'd offer a prize (pictured left) to the person who made me laugh out loud with her definition of "countered cross-stitch." And you people made me laugh. And then I felt bad about having to choose one person from the lot. (I also cry when reading children's books.)

So I had the dude pick a name. He chose Michelle--I kept the scrap of paper as visual evidence but I can't find it now that I'm finally blogging. Her imagined subversive kleenex cosy is something that went on my list of things to stitch! Michelle, offlist me so I can send your prize.
Edited to add Michelle's comment: Countered - a verb - To move or act in opposition to; oppose. Needlework undertaken in an effort to push the boundaries of society's view of those who stitch. See also Subversive Cross-stitch. I'm sure she's stitched her share of Kleenex box cosies that say "F Off".

I'm being lazy today and haven't looked up Michelle's comment in full - could you include it in your next post? Always looking for a good laugh! ;)

Lucky Michelle, that's a beautiful prize. She deserves it with that hilarious definition.

Woohoo - I'm a winner! Seriously the prize is gorgeous, and very generous. Now, get to stitching on that Kleenex cozy.

Hi GF: did you snag your orn magazine yet? Mine came in the mail.

I look forward to your review.

And, one of these years, Imight have some free time to actually stitch.

You know, thread the needle & boss it around the linen!!! LOL
