In Second Place!

I just wanted to give you all an update on my entry in the Connecting Threads fabric design contest. At the moment, I'm in second place! That is AMAZING, and it's all thanks to you guys. I clearly have the best readers—and the best blogger friends!—on the entire interwebs. I can't thank all of you enough for voting and supporting my design, but I'll try anyway: THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

But there's still a week left to go in the voting, and anything could happen between now and then. Two other designs are within five votes of mine, and one is just 30 votes back, so even though I'm in the top five right now, the outcome is by no means assured. So if you haven't voted yet, I would so appreciate it if you would take just a moment to do so. I promise it's very quick and easy! Click here to vote for my design—it's called "Flourish" and it's in the fourth row from the top.

You can only vote once, so if you have already voted, thanks again! You can ignore this and any future begging and pleading for votes. : ) Voting ends August 31.


  1. WTG! How exciting...

    (I wonder if I can vote from work... shhhh!)

  2. Good luck! I will be rooting for you.

  3. FYI... The votes are by email address.....so.....I have two different email addresses, so have voted twice! Might go check out my husband too!!

  4. I already voted, good luck. Love your design.

  5. Lee, I already voted for you but I just put out the word on my blog in case any of my readers had not seen your design yet. Hopefully that will get you some more votes. You totally deserve it!


  6. Yea!! I will keep sounding the call too! Congrats!

  7. I've voted twice now :) I love your fabric and I think it would be so awesome to see a whole line produced. You are so talented.

  8. How exciting, I've voted...can I vote more than once?

  10. I've seen lots of blogs sing the praises of your CT entry, and I finally got around to voting for it today. Good luck!
