It was a tight race, Padsworth. Some of the voters complained about the difficulty of the choice - both contestants were worthy opponents (actually friends!) and each of them had sterling qualities.....
OK, this is not really a political contest here! There were two lovely quilts in progress by two wonderful craftswomen; Joy Denise and Yvette both have awesome colors and workmanship in their Farmer's Wife Samplers, which can be viewed in the gallery at OleFrogEyes.
When the votes were tallied, it was Yvette that squeaked past Joy Denise for the win! Congratulations, Yvette!
