Question: DO MOTHS COUNT TOWARDS THIS CONTEST?
Question: CAN IT BE ON PLASTIC CANVAS OR DOES IT HAVE TO BE CLOTH?
Answer: Use your imagination, plastic canvas, a fence, fabric of some kind...as long as it is cross stitched and has beads AND it is a butterfly (or moth as previously stated).
Contest starts NOW and ends on October 31st
The theme for this contest is Butterflies….but with an added bit of sparkle…..BEADS. Stick with the theme, any butterfly will do as long as somewhere on the finished piece are beads.

First place special note: When you win first place, you will have to sit out of the next contest as a contestant. However, you WILL be an honorary judge for the following contest if that is something you are interested in.
What this means is you will assist in scoring submissions. You can submit to the contest as a judge but your submission won’t count towards the competition itself (the judges participate but their entries don’t count).

When the winners are announced, if you would like a critique of your work, we will gladly note you the results!
If this has shown up again in yer inbox and ye've noticed no change, it's because Captain Pinky was movin' it back to the front page. Arr.
I couldn't have asked for a better spot; the other two works are absolutely beautiful and totally deserve the love and appreciation and support.
HURRAY! Congrats to all the winners and what a beautiful job all the contestants did!
WEEEEeeeeeeee thank you and congrats! Will be sending out the proper notes shortly!
I don't think I ever got a note.... Should I have by now?
SQUUUUEEEEEEEE!!!! THANK YOU!!!!
By the way, when the winners are announced, could I get feedback on mine? Thanks! I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for the results!
Whoah, the entries are soooo beautiful!
Bawww, I can't do it now!
Ahh looking good!
Can it be on plastic canvas or does it have to be cloth?
Mine's coming on so well now - over half-way finished, and planning on having a right old stitching session this afternoon to get even more done. Looks like I will actually have one finished in time for once!
*cracking whip* I'm so excited to see I'm beside myself!!
YAY! I totally bought a kit just for this...AND it's a gift for my mother. She LOVES butterflies. It's been submitted already. So much fun!
And now added! My apologies, I was at a family reunion, but you are IN!
RIGHT, now since I (FOR ONCE) managed to catch a challenge the month it started instead of with three weeks to go until the finish.... I might actually be able to get one done in time!! Yay! Now to hunt a nice little chart - I''m sure I'll have one somewhere...
hey I wanted to add my submission for this contest in the club and contest folder but it denied access.
What should I do?
What should I do?
It denied you? That's odd! It's nowhere near full. I saw your submission so I'll just be sure to move it into the contest folder for you. Thanks for letting me know.
Do moths count..?
D; why must all the epic contests happen when I'm far too busy to stitch! Dx
Fit a tiny less than 50x50 stitches butterfly into your day, it will be worth it!!
T-T I have no tiny butterfly patterns nor do I have access to my bead stash...hopefully will be moved in two weeks so I might attempt to get something in
Google a freebie small pattern, there's tons out there! I know you can do it!
Well, I might have more time now that I dropped a radiator on my toe >_<" and therefore wont really be able to help with much with the house :/
Eek! Feel well soon (but not so soon that you don't get to stitch)!
Haha thanks. Fingers crossed its not broken. On a plus side. Found some cool patterns id really wanna do....but no clue when ill get access to my thread D; its packed away in a box somewhere T-T
