Xmas Humbug 
Stitch this beautiful Winner!! 
             
Free Pattern
Designed by Thea Dueck

Our Seasonal Biscornu Contests were so much fun, I created another Free Pattern for all our stitchers to interpret! I asked all the people in the main Victoria Sampler Yahoo Group, and they voted for a Humbug.  You too can stitch this humbug using your own colours of linen and materials.. flosses, overdyed threads, silk ribbon, perle, linen etc. You can also add your choice of beads or other embellishments to the finished version if you wish. Sharlotte Devere's version was the winning entry... wow is it every cute!  We included Sharlotte's choices of thread and beads in the chart, but we also have the original chart!  This humbug was judged by members of our VSYahoo Group... according to how well the Christmas theme was interpreted, use of colour, finishing details, and general overall beauty. The winner received $50 of VS gifts, and a picture of the winning Humbug (including a list of materials) is published on our website in the Free Pattern section for everyone to see! Stitch your own version, finish it, and upload a clear large photo in the Victoria Sampler A CHRISTMAS HUMBUG Photo Album in the Main Victoria Sampler Yahoo group for fun! Remember the Contest has ended on Sept 1st, 2010, but you can add your own photo to the album anytime afterwards just for the fun of it. Stitch this Christmas Humbug and have fun with our little humbug!! - Thea
