Little Tiger's Orangey Celebration embroidery
Joey's Dream Garden!

Out of 770 votes, Joey won with 183 votes cast for her amazing piece. Seriously, if you haven't yet, you need to click through to the large size and do some zooming in to appreciate the stitching. It's incredible. She'll be receiving the Rainbow of Stitches book and full set of DMC floss!

Here's the breakdown of the votes:

We have a winner!

There was a LOT of movement in the voting yesterday, with LadyHazard's entry swinging in to second and Jacque's entry into third. I sat down with some embroidery last night and had a great time monitoring the end of the contest.

Remember that each of our category finalists will be receiving prizes as well! Each winner will receive a package with a bit of the following: embroidery floss, pdf patterns, vintage patterns, fat quarters, blank tea towels or pillowcases. Winners: please Flickrmail me, floresita, with your address so we can get your package sent out to you.

Thank you so much to everyone who entered this contest, everyone who voted, and all of our finalists. This was an amazing showing of talent.
