Swirlygig Challenge

Are you ready? I am sure I don't have to tell you that stitchers are very creative and talented people! You are going to have a very difficult decision. I want to thank everyone who took the time to enter the challenge. As they used to say on After School Specials in the 70s, you're all winners!

Indeed, how to choose the winners: e-mail me your vote by September 27 to annavsxs AT gmail. As you will see if you scroll down, there are two simultaneous contests: one for those who finish-finished the piece henceforth known as the winner of the Inaugural Stitch Bitch Challenge and the First Annual Anna van Schurman Queen of the Fuffies prize for the person who couldn't/didn't do the finishing. It sounds great but don't be fooled, it's a runner up. At any rate, you should make sure to label which contest you are voting in--you can vote for both in the same e-mail.

Click to make the pictures bigger--see those floss colors, examine the finishing, look at those beads!

You are welcome to comment on the pieces in the comments, however, pretend you were raised well and know how to be polite.

They all look great. Even the FUFOs. Now I wish I'd gotten it done (of course).
