Yes, it's true! I was one of the 46 winners from the 7th Bead Soup Blog Hop. This is something new this year. Some of the big names in the industry voted on winners in several categories--Grand Prize, Wire Work, Seed Beads, Use of Fiber, Use of Color, and Lori and her son picked a few as well. You can read all about and see all the winning designs here.
I was a winner in the Best Use of Fiber category with this design. Thanks again to Ruth Szapa for the fabric she included in the soup she sent. That's what sparked the design. And of course, thanks to Lori for running these huge blog hops and coming up with all these great ideas.
Pretty darn exciting to be among all those talented designers. Who wants an autograph?
