We have a winner of the first part of our contest. Someone correctly identified which painting was the inspiration for an upcoming release. We'll announce the person closer to the release date, but in the meantime, here's another sneak peek.
I'm anxious to try out many of your suggestions for another design based on a painting, so hopefully I can soon announce the second winner!
Thank you all for participating!
Be the first to correctly guess which painting on my website (martybarrick.com) inspired a new cross stitch design and win the chart when it is released on August 16th. The design doesn't look exactly like the painting, but there are some similarities in composition. The winner will be announced August 16th. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with one guess.
A Second Way to Win
Convince me, in an email to email@example.com, to design a pattern based on any of the paintings on my site. If I choose your suggestion, and am happy with the design, you'll be the first to own the chart. The chart does not have to copy the painting... maybe just the theme will be the same. This winner will be announced as soon as the design is stitched. Deadline for your suggestion (just one please) is August 16th.
I love Jill Bobbin's twist on "Ode to the Newspaper"
She customized it for her father's 80th birthday by changing some of the newspaper names, adding his name and birthday and including a kindle! Thanks for sharing this, Jill. I bet he doesn't receive anything like it!
I included this cover image in my final email to my co-workers at The Washington Post two years ago.
