This was a bit of a puzzler. There were two real contenders, Rita E in Az and neverdyingpoet. But I said I'd announce the winner at the end of March and it is long since time to do just that. Since I can't narrow it down any further, there will be two winners of a $10 gc to 123stitch:: Rita and the stitcherman named Shirley. Why that reminds me of the old Johnny Cash song, A Boy named Sue, I can't say, but it does! I am still puzzling over what a swirly is ... some exotic boxing move? a sweet little stitched what-not? an imaginary object inserted for the sake of rhyme? I'll be e-mailing the two winners later on today but right now I have to get ready for work. Thanks to all who participated in my little contest. I'll do it again next winter.
