Oh you talented lot! They are all gorgeous and so Autumnal! Well done for following the brief so well, I'm truly impressed!

I'm going to announce the winner tomorrow morning, so if there are any last minute entries, you have till then.

Hi everyone, as promised I’m here to announce the winner to the October challenge.

Absolutely lovely entries again, and all so original and different. I do enjoy setting briefs as everyone’s interpretation is so different. When I brief the designers for the magazine, I’m always intrigued as to what will come back. Brenda as I mentioned, I loved the surprise of what was behind the cover and Shiela I thought yours was so atmospheric and like Brenda’s wonderfully illustrative.

But, without further ado, this month’s winner is…. Drum roll… Glenda with the gorgeous Owls. I love the top stitching which gives that lovely hand-made quality, the cute factor provided by the owls themselves- and of course the sheer practicality of it.

I have selected a second book in the Zakka Style series as a prize, which is a lovely collection of 25 projects ‘stitched with ease, to give, use and enjoy’.

Glenda, PM me your address and I’ll pop it in the post today!

I’m off on holiday now for a week, but I believe Rosemary will be giving you details of the December competition, with a particularly festive feel!

Have a great week everyone,

Emma x

And here is that new post....please use that one for any messages for me!!

Good afternoon Emma posted....this month is a joint effort between the 2 of us!

I am proposing a Christmas postcard swap..... with all entries to be made by December 3rd. with all images to be emailed to me by that date.......I will then send out your swap partner and upload all the images anonymously ready for Emma to select the winner!!

For any newbies ......a post card is usually approx 6 ins by 4 ins....with a back and a front made of fabric....... maybe some thin wadding and something stiff in the middle an interfacing of some sort usually. It can be placed in an envelope but I like to post mine "naked" if you will excuse the language!!

Please do join's great to swap something as small as this!

Best Rosemsry

Congratulations Glenda, such cute owls and so practical too.

Sheila, I have to confess that I love your picture - it made me quite home-sick for the small- holding we used to have.
