Covered in Stitches Contest update
WOW! We are absolutely delighted by your submissions to our Covered in Stitches contest. Many contestants have clearly put a lot of thought, time and effort into their embroideries. And to learn that there is so much talent among our readers, is quite humbling.
In total there were 45 embroideries entered by 42 contestants (if I counted correctly). Some books appear several times (Anne of Green Gables was a popular one) but on the whole there was a large variety in the book covers that were chosen. From Science Fiction to children's books and from cook book to comic books. According to the descriptions of the pieces entered for this contest, quite a few embroiderers have expanded their stitchy horizon to complete their work. Either by the scale of the project or by trying out new stitches or techniques. There were even a few contestants who made their very first embroidery for this contest!
Early next week a shortlist of candidates (as chosen by six members of the Feeling Stitchy team) will be presented on this blog. After that Feeling Stitchy readers can vote for their favourite Embroidered Book Cover!
