CONGRATULATIONS!  We have to say that this was a wonderful contest and THANK YOU to all who submitted your lovely stitching.  Please remember that if you would like a private critique on your submitted piece, please note SpitfireFae and one will be provided.  It is our hope that everyone just participates for the pure joy of stitching and checking out what creatively beautiful things other stitchers come up with as that really is a win as well!  We are always so impressed with the submissions it makes it hard to judge at times.

Huge thanks to pinkythepink for being our Honorary Judge for this contest.

Our next contest will not start until January and if ANYONE has contest ideas or prize ideas please do not hesitate to share with us :D  Changing it up doesn't hurt one bit!

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!

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.
pinkythepink's avatar
pinkythepinkProfessional 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.
MasterPlanner's avatar
MasterPlannerProfessional Artisan Crafter
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!

BellaGBearStudent Artisan Crafter
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. 
MasterPlanner's avatar
MasterPlannerProfessional Artisan Crafter
Eh, I don't want to put a content warning on it because it's just words embroidered on a cloth.

very curious what you are making though.

Well this finally got me started on something I've been meaning to stitch up a long time ago!~ :heart:

So would a birth announcement work? It has "Welcome" in large letters.
Mattsma's avatar
MattsmaHobbyist Artisan Crafter
We are discussing it presently :D
Pegasi1978's avatar
Any decisions?
Mattsma's avatar
MattsmaHobbyist Artisan Crafter
oh yes!  Birth announcements are fine :love:  I could swear I responded!  My apologies

Would profanity be oke? I am thinking about making a design based on the swearing colouring plates which go around lately.
