Here’s the book that my readers were trying to win. You gave me a LOT of work to do! This one was very difficult for me. I should just stick to the random drawing. Would make it a lot easier for me to just pull a name out of a hat. But, for the month of May, I wanted to see flowers everywhere. And, I did!
I truly enjoyed clicking on every link that was posted. I found some sites I will definitely visit again and some artists whose work I’m going to be following. I narrowed my choices down to 5 – but only 1 can win, right? I loved the looks of the Tulip Field Blanket, but anyone who actually makes that is likely nutso! Or, at least I would be if I tried to make it! So, had to pass on that one. I’m a sucker for snowflakes and this one is great – but more a snowflake than a flower. These booties are beyond adorable! But, not the winner I needed. So, that brought me down to just two. So hard to decide.
I end up having to factor in aspects in my own voting that I hadn’t put in the rules. It becomes not just about the flowers, the colors, the yarns. Finally, what always draws me to a winner is the unique quality of the work and, in this case, the combination of artforms. I really tried not to give an edge to a poster’s original work(s) of art, but this month, that was the deciding factor. AND, I wound up with two winners. So, we have a Grand Prize Winner who will receive a copy of the book pictured above and a Runner Up who will receive a book from my library since I have only one copy of this book to give. Here goes!
The Runner Up is this posting by Deanna:
