SURPRISE!! BIG NEWS!!! I have been selected as one of the 12 challengers to compete in round 4 of Battle of the Stitches! BOS is a crochet competition much like Project Runway on Tv. 12 competitors are given a crochet stitch and theme. In 2 weeks, we must design a pattern to be judged by an elite panel of veteran crochet artists.
...and a little nervous! Hope I can live up to the level of incredible artisans in this group. There are some amazing ladies who have been crocheting for over 40 years, as well as some up and coming newbies who have just entered the scene.
If you are interested in following the competition, head over to 3B&BY on Facebook, "like" the page, and make sure you have selected "Get Notificataions."
There are going to be lots of yarntastic prizes & giveaways, as well as special sales & promotions.
I would be ever so grateful if you would leave me a comment of encouragement & share this blog post to show your virtual support.
We need all of it we can get before the battle begins!
Christine has been crocheting for over 40 years and has been writing patterns for over a decade!
Can you imagine the wealth of crochet knowledge she brings to the competition!
Christine has eight children and four grandchildren (with one more on the way!)
As you might imagine, she is most inspired by her family.
This Fall Romance Shawl is one of my favorites!
Be sure you stop by Two Brothers Blankets and ChrisCrossCrafts on Facebook to keep up with Michelle and Christine during the competition...and while you are there, leave them a bit of encouragement for the upcoming competition!
Only two more challengers left to be revealed! The anticipation is killing me!
Challengers 7 and 8 have been announced at Battle of The Stitches! Until now, all the challengers have been returning competitors from previous rounds. What makes this announcement exciting is that these two ladies are NEW to the competition!
As with last week, there is a fun "Factoid" game and a chance to win a yarn-tastic prize! Be sure you are following BOS on Facebook for details on how to enter.
First up is Sheri from The Country Willow. She is a mother of SIX and has been crocheting since she was 12!
Her new Woodland series of sweaters is outstanding! Sheri prides herself on using new stitch combinations in all her patterns. Please stop by to like her Facebook page and wish her luck.
Samantha loves, dragons and crafts and *may* be slightly obsessed with Dr. Who. She jokes that every once in a while she lets her "inner-geek" come out in her designs. I love how she owns her geekness and obsession with the tardis by saying, "Everyone has a story...make it a good one."
You may recognize Samantha's recent smash-hit of a pattern, the Angel Lovie. I know the first time I saw it, I had to go find out who the designer was....and now we all know!
Who will the next two challengers be...you will have to stay tuned to see! It won't be long now folks. The competition stitch and theme will soon be announced! Do you have any guesses as to what they will be? Until we find out, stay calm and craft on, Y'all!
Rebecca is well known for her amazing Character hats, but she's ready to keep you guessing as she decides on something unique to design for this round. In round 3, she designed the beautiful Braided Scoodie Wrap!
After sweltering in the Tx heat for 3 long months, that first cool day is extremely energizing!
Soon to follow is the aroma of pumpkin spice...leaves changing colors... and the holidays.
Ok, I'll admit it...that's not the only reason Autumn is my favorite.
I also turned 40 this year (cringe) and I am hot...ALL.THE.TIME.
I'm not talking "luke" warm or daintily glowing.
I'm talking ON FIREfrom the inside out...sweat dripping from every pore on my body...cold showers and changing clothes multiple times a day...and, yes, I've been known to shove bags of frozen vegetables in areas no veggie should every be (so sorry for that visual)!
My misery is YOUR gain!
I am ushering in Fall with open arms, fingers crossed and a
