Winners: Ring Your Neck Scarf Challenge!

And the winners are......
November was a busy month for everyone, but that didn't stop 19 people from signing up for my challenge and giving it go.  Sending big hugs and thank yous to everyone who signed up!  You all make these challenges fun and engaging, and I just love you for it!

I challenged you to make a scarf and trying something new in the process.  15 lovely participants were able to meet the challenge!  Congratulations to the 15 who met the challenge!  We ended up with 15 unique and wonderful scarves to enter into the voting portion of the challenge.  
Without further ado, the results are:

In first place, receiving the most votes, is Marisa from  Passion et Couture with her striking scarf made with a technique using water soluble stabilizer.  

Congrats Marisa!  Your bragging rights have been activated!
Here's a shiny new badge for your blog:
Congrats Marisa!

In second place, we have a tie!  
Linda from Desert Designs with her chenille scarf and Fiona from Celtic Thistle Stitches receive second place honors!

Congrats Linda!  Your bragging rights have been activated!
You might not have a blog to show it off, but here's your shiny badge all the same:

Congrats Signe!

Challenging ourselves to learn new skills and to meet our commitments are noble and admirable qualities.  I applaud all the participants for all their hard work and dedication during a super busy time of year.  Everyone was stretched thin, that I was getting pretty worried near the end of November.  But with 15 finished projects, we have so many reasons to be proud!  Congrats and thank you again!

Happy crafting and big hugs from frosty Montana,

  11. Signe is having trouble commenting on my blog maybe because she doesn't have profiles with anything in the "comment as" box. At any rate, I'd like to convey her congratulations to all the winners and participants. She's impressed with all the hard work everyone put into this challenge. She wrote in her blog that she's inspired to continue to play with fabric and make a lot of new and creative garments this year.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment! No-reply commentors don't get to read my witty replies, and that's just sad.
