You guys just totally rock! When I posted about our friend Leesa’s contest yesterday, her entry stood at a tie for fifth place. In less than twenty-four hours, your votes have put her in first place! That is just totally awesome!

Voting doesn’t end until 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, June 21 (Central Time – the contest holder is in Chicago). So we want to keep the action going to keep Leesa at the top. You can only vote once, but if you have any friends you think would vote, or a blog of your own where you can post the voting link, that would be absolutely wonderful.

The link to the voting page for the contest is:


And the name to vote for is Amphibian. That’s Leesa’s entry. I didn’t mention before, but I like it so much because it suits the colors of the glass being named, but it’s not expectable or cliched. A lot of the other names entered are very pretty, but also a little too predictable. I can really imagine these colors in a frog or salamander, all wet and shiny and green!

I’ll post next week how Leesa does in the contest. If we can keep this momentum going, though, I think we can expect a good result!

Thank you all!

Yeah…I voted! At the time I voted, amphibian was at 23% (first place). The second and third place names were at 16%. I’ll ask a few people I know to help keep Leesa in first place. 😉
Hopefully Leesa can keep this strong lead until the polls close.

Lola looks cute with that yarn label on her. A nice, soft touch like her deserves only the best needles you have. LOL!

Your Entrelac Shawl looks great. 🙂

Take Care!

Wow!! :0 You guys are super! Thanks so much for all your efforts to get out the vote for Amphibian! My fingers are crossed that it will hold the lead spot until the poll closes… 😉

Jen, that entrelac shawl is GORGEOUS. The texture is amazing and I love the blend of colors you’ve got there. Can’t wait to see and hear more about that project!
