The winners are......

I can't thank you all enough for voting for your favourite illustrations to be turned into the next Bumpkin Embroidery Pattern. It was a close race with Bunny & Her Teapot just beating the others at the finishing line! She only beat Sweet Dreams by 2 points!
So here is the top ranking!
FIRST - Bunny & Her Teapot

SECOND - Sweet Dreams

Joint THIRD - Bunny & Her Cupcakes & Our Story

I recently met Helen, of Bustle & Sew and was delighted to see her beautiful designs and hear of her online monthly magazine. She kindly invited me to write an article for her April edition, so this has spurred me on to get some lovely new patterns all ready to share with the readers and all of you lovely folk. You must take a peek at the gorgeous cushion that Helen made for her daughter's birthday using my Bunny & her Teacups pattern and check out her Blog.

If anyone else has images of my Art, Bears, Embroidery in their new homes then do send them along to me, I always love to see them.

So added onto my ever growing list is create these new embroidery patterns, funnily enough these were ones I too would have chosen first, so great to know we are on the same wavelength :) Back soon with lots to share, Hugs, Catherine x


  1. I missed out on your vote, but I would've chosen Bunny & Her Teapot too. I really love how the roses on the teacup jump out at you. x

  2. Wonderful choices Catherine. All so pretty!

  3. Hi Catherine, thanks for stopping by my corner of the world. Your embroidery patterns are adorable. The teacup and bunny pattern so cute. I really want to try my hand at embroidery -- just haven't gotten there yet. And your bears are sooooooooooooo sweet! I used to collect bears but was getting way too many. I only kept the most special ones. Hope you are having a great day. Best wishes, Tammy
