Covered in Stitches: an Embroidery Contest!

Today is the start of a wonderful contest over on the Feeling Stitchy blog and I am terribly excited about it! When I came across the awesome Jillian Tamaki Embroidered Book Cover Designs earlier this year, I thought it would be a neat idea to host an Embroidery Contest on Feeling Stitchy with the theme 'book covers'. As you probably know I love books and I had a great time a couple of months ago when I made my Doubtful Guest Embroidery for the Book themed swap I was involved in. So hopefully the theme will inspire many of you embroiderers out there as well. Besides that, there are some fabulous prizes to be won, kindly provided by small Embroidery supply businesses. I would like to enter and win them myself but of course I can't so I'm putting many of those items on my Christmas Wishlist. Like this one:

A Party Fox Crewel Kit by Takofibers.  How wonderful is that?!

You can read all about the Contest here, and join the Covered in Stitches Flickr Group here. I hope to see many of you there! It would be lovely if you could help me spread the word about this Contest on your blog, twitter etc. My Feeling Stitchy colleague Carina made a lovely button for the Covered in Stitches Contest which you can put on your blog. You can find it right at the end of the Feeling Stitchy post about the contest!
