Fantasy Creatures Contest: Results!

Dear friends,

As some of you may know, I entered my very first crochet contest last month!  The results have just come out, and the three winning designs (out of 700+ submissions) are phenomenal!!  I am especially impressed by Little Peryton; what a beaut!  A simply impeccable design.

Many friends helped vote for my designs as well, and I was SHOCKED to see the results...


I can hardly believe that one of my three entries received 726 votes, putting her in the 32nd place!  That just blows my mind!  I was hoping to reach 50 votes, so this was a very humbling surprise.  Thank you, thank you, thank you for liking my work!

If you'd like to learn more about my three entries, you can read their descriptions in this post

Thank you all for your support and for continuing to believe in me!  I can't wait to share many more designs with you in the future!
