Who did you vote for, and why? Come on, you can tell us - who is your fave? :)


  1. Good grief! How do you choose one out of all those? Brilliant.... absolutely brilliant. Toddling off to vote. I have a definite favourite, but I don't think it's the best stitching.

    Amazing talent from everyone participating.

  2. I had such a difficult time deciding between these gorgeous pieces that I can't even tell you right now which I voted for.

    They would all get my vote if I could.

  3. Yep, I voted and boy was it hard to choose.

  4. Such awesome entries! Mine is the Still Life With Woodpecker one, anf i am now realizing how lame my pictures look compared to everyone elses! Man, i have to work on my photography skills big time!
