Flower icon.39 by RedqueenAllison Magical525 and Mattsma have come up with a way for you to use that neglected floss you have laying around.  For some of you, it probably bothers you just a tiny bit that you have these flosses that never get used or there is just a tiny bit left of some specialty floss that you may never use again from a kit. Here is the best way to ensure you use every  one of them at least once, or finish them off entirely!  Gifted floss, those bobbins that sit quietly in your floss boxes, bags, or drawer never getting used or are forgotten…oh yes, we have something fun for you!  

Flower icon.19 by RedqueenAllison Magical525 will provide a pattern which may or may not have a key and using the key is strictly up to you, you just grab random colors, or get color coordinated, and stitch up the pattern using those old neglected flosses.  Random number generator works for those times when you cannot decide.  Or close your eyes and reach into your stash and use whatever comes out. Dig out those little pieces and parts of fabrics you have laying around that you don’t know what to do with!  These will make PERFECT on the go travel projects.  Some patterns will be 20 x 20 stitches all the way to 50 x 50 stitches. The possibilities are endless! 

Flower icon.30 by RedqueenAllison  The flosses do not have to be DMC, they can be ANY NEGLECTED FLOSS you have laying around. Have two strands of some Weeks Dye Works left over?  Use that up until it’s gone! Then start a new floss where you left off. Test out those metallics or silks or satin floss that you are nervous about using!

Tangerine Orb by kayosa-stock CONTEST RULES   Tangerine Orb by kayosa-stock

(Please read everything as it is all very important!)

1.  The idea of TINY here is no larger than 5x5 inches tall and wide (12.75 x 12.75cm).

2.  Your finished piece should have a ruler somewhere in the picture to confirm the size as it's very difficult to gauge the size in pictures.  Any submission without a ruler to show size will be disqualified. You may submit two pictures in one submission; one with the ruler and one without but they must be in the same submission.

3.   Toys.  TOYS. TOYS. Just a picture of toys. No 3D.  We understand there are 3D "toys", however that is a different contest altogether.

4.   Remember to read the Rubric!

:skullbones:  The contest begins on October 1, 2016 and ends on December 31, 2016.  

:skullbones:  The judging will take place from January 1, 2017 to January 7, 2017 with winners being announced on January 8, 2017.

:skullbones:  Once the announcement has been made, please note Mattsma with yer email and mailing address for yer prizes by January 15, 2017 to ensure an expeditious sending of your prizes. :ahoy:

:skullbones:  When the winners are announced, if ye would like a critique of yer work, we will gladly note you the results.  Please note SpitfireFae or Katjakay with the request.


EXAMPLES (does not need to be Christmas, just make sure there are TOYS):

Ahoy everyone! :ahoy:

Because we're not a super group I've gone through the trouble for ye to create a poll on behalf of Mattsma and Magical525 for the group. It's involved with the Neglected Floss Stitch-a-long they've been hosting and it would be of great benefit to us all if ye'd take a moment to cast yer ballot.
