The first set of entries for the contest

Here is some of the beautiful embroidery that people have been sending me. First is Jaquie from My sew called life. She did these beautiful owls on a tea towel. The design came from which is really a great embroidery download site.

Here's Brynne from All this by hand and her hand embroidered Christmas present for her Mom. She made it up as she went along, very impressive.

Holly from Thoughts of an Incurable midwesterner made these pillows out of a vintage tablecloth. The tablecloth didn't fit her table, but it made a lovely pair of pillows!

And last but not least Edie from The Sporadic packrat, who lives in Alaska and needed a really bright sewing basket to use during the dark winter. More on the basket here.

There's still time for more, keep 'em comin'!
