And the Winner Is...

The winner for possibly the best background stitch EVER is Donna F. with this great heart pattern adorning my "No Place Like Home" canvas:


And this one wins the "best background in a needlepointing photo" award!  This is my favorite picture ever!  If Polly V. did not take home a prize from the fair for either her pig or her needlepoint I hope she'll take mine as a consolation prize!  The canvas is my Pink Punkin Halloween Cottage, available with kit and stitch guide from Chandail.

Paula B. stitched this fabulous rendition of Pirate Mermaid, doesn't it look great?


Andrea A. completed her CandyLand Christmas so quickly I could hardly believe my eyes!  Love the background stitches on this one!


Barb W. gets a ton of stitching done while she travels, she just completed one of the designs from my Stitch a Falling Star club:


I'm sneaking in a stitched and finished one too, this is one of my Thistle Hill ornaments stitched by Ann T.:
