The winner of the machine embroidery category for this years coloring contest is that yummy coffee colored creation by Juliane!
This one was a TIGHT race folks. Separated by just a few votes from the amazing brightly colored design by inartwork. Everyone did such an amazing job, I know it was a hard choice! And what about the hand embroidery contestants?
The winner of the hand embroidery category for this years coloring contest is that gorgeous colorful watercolored creation by Brandy!
This one was also a pretty tight race, with April’s crayon tinted design not far behind. It was just so hard to CHOOSE, wasn’t it? The 8 other finalists all win a $10 UT gift certificate for making it into the final round and for working so hard on their entries. These pieces were all so wonderfully stitched and the colors just stunning. So much work went into these beautiful pieces!
