Remember that time I suggested we have a stitching challenge? I think it was about a year ago... We'd all take the same freebie and substitute flosses and fibers and use a variety of finishing techniques. Then I found a pattern, but since it wasn't online anymore and I couldn't get the designer to return my e-mails, it just seemed like too much work. Well...
I've found the pattern. Small and straightforward. You can really do something with this.

You stitch up your version, and send a photo (or two) to me. Don't post it to your blog, we want to keep these anonymous! I'll post the versions here and everyone will vote.
Let's say entries must be received by September 16th. We'll judge based on overall appearance, color, and material combination--it would be too hard to judge stitch quality from photographs.
Sound good? Get stitching!
