As I mentioned on Friday, the wonderful people involved with Anna Maria's Needleworks Notebook were sweet enough to share a copy of this book to review on Feeling Stitchy. I enjoyed reviewing this book so much that I decided to gift a copy to one lucky Feeling Stitchy reader!

But, before I tell you who the winner is (yes, I am dragging this out for maximum suspense) I counted all your votes - I asked that if you could choose just 1 medium -Cross Stitch, Needlepoint, Freehand Embroidery, or Crewelwork - what would it be? Not counting those of you who couldn't decide, or who chose not to answer, here is what you all chose!

Your votes:
cross stitch 23
needlepoint 3
freehand embroidery 52
crewelwork 13

Wow, it looks like the clear winner is freehand embroidery! By the way, I only called it "freehand embroidery" to differentiate from other counted methods of embroidery like cross stitch. Looks like this is the technique of choice with all of you guys! I'm totally on the fence, as I am equally in love with freehand embroidery AND cross stitch. :)

Now, for our winner!
