The Softie Awards are on and there are nearly 200 entries so far! There are lots of entries in the Cutest Face category, but the Picnic Food and Embroidered to Death categories are WIDE open, so if you make food or decorate your softie with some cool stitches, enter them today! Here's the flickr group - 2nd Annual Softie Awards to post to.
Each category will be judged by an experienced crafter who love softies! They are:
Cutest Face - Natalie Zee Drieu/CRAFT Magazine* (Natalie has been a judge for every Softie Awards - thank you Nat! - and is the Honorary Head Judge)
Embroidered to Death - Floresita/Embroidery flickr group, Feeling Stitchy and Things I've Made Flor is one of the busiest bloggers - running the Embroidery group is just the tip of the iceberg. She's the perfect person to judge this category since she sees so much of everyone's work every day and is a beautiful embroiderer herself!
Elephant Tribute - Cal Patch/Hodge Podge Farm - if you don't know Cal or her blog, you're missing out on one of the most original and talented women I know.
Pink or Plaid - Christina Loff/Publicist for all the craft books at Chronicle Books and a talented crafter too. She posts to the Chronicle Books blog as well as her personal one, Borrowed, Bought, Stolen
Picnic Food - Elsa Mora/Elsita blog Elsa is a new judge for the Softie Awards and we're excited to have her on board! She makes softies but if you want to see what a Renaissance artist is doing today, check out her blog. I'm honored to have her on the team!
