...And the Winner Is

Thank you so much to everyone that entered my giveaway for the Feminist Cross Stitch supplies. And a special thank you to those that shared the giveaway with others! 

After a random number generator selection the winner is... 

It looks like Marie Curie is the most popular of all the ladies in the book. For the obvious reasons in that she was a very smart lady that persevered in a world where women were not supposed to be smart or have discoveries. 

Lately there has been a lot of media around harassment (of all sorts) against women. I think sometimes it's important to remember how far we have come as a society and therefore we can certainly continue to progress. No challenge is too large or insurmountable. Our history tells us that. 

I'm still working on the border design for my Feminist Cross Stitch complete piece. But I believe I have chosen my fabric! It is a 40ct New Castle dyed by Picture This Plus called 'Ancient'. It's got a lovely little green throughout it on the ancient looking yellow/beige fabric.
I also ordered some fun variegated threads the other day to do the border in. The pieces themselves will be in the DMC as called for so I thought I would add a little bit of colour change into it in the border. And because I just can't help myself! 

Thanks so much for stopping by and following my blog! 
Up next week will be more dragons updates! If I'm really lucky I'll have 3 more to share! I've been pushing hard to get those little critters finished up.

Wow! Thank you. Also, great fabric choice. That one is really pretty and should show each character well.
