Have a beautiful rest of the year, be safe and enjoy your holiday season :love: We have one more surprise for you so STAY TUNED!

Fire-orb by kayosa-stock  Yer submission must have a word or words, a phrase perhaps.  Words that inspire.  A single word that would be enough.  Turn a phrase, a quote….a saying or cliche.

Fire-orb by kayosa-stock  Yer submission must have yer cross stitch.

Fire-orb by kayosa-stock  Only one submission per contestant.  If ye feel inspired enough to do more than one, ye can take one picture of all and submit to ye olde contest folder.

What's the policy on swearing? I have some ideas in mind, but I'd like to check if Malcolm Tucker levels of language are acceptable.

:iconpinkythepink:
pinkythepink Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2017  Professional Artisan Crafter
As far as our group rules go, swearing is absolutely fine. :) If you'd be embarrassed to have it seen in a public space, maybe hit it with a Mature Content filter.

Oh I'm not embarrassed at all about swearing in a public space, but I'm aware that some people might not feel the same way. Thanks for helping out!

I had the same question (see my message below). It is alright if you add a 'mature warning'. But I am not a judge, so don't take my word for it.

Eh, I don't want to put a content warning on it because it's just words embroidered on a cloth.

We are good with it, just add a mature warning to the picture when you submit it just in case we have younger members.

sorry it was so late in getting to you. Honestly I don't think any of us saw it even though one of us was tagged. All 3 of us has had crazy life things going on. But it's a good rule of thumb for any submission, contest or otherwise. Just in case. :)

Yup. I'm making another bag tag using my scrap black aida.
The design is already done in the PC program and it is just a matter of stitching it in.

Would it have to be just words, or a big, profound saying?
Or could it be a picture with a simple phrase?

It can just be a single word if you like! :D
