The Battle is ON
The Designers are set
Their Hooks came out swinging
Their yarn they did get
The focus - One Stitch
The Theme - Mother's Day
Hold on to your seats!
There's more on the way...

The Guidelines:
     1. Each designer must design something new using the "Rocky Road" crochet stitch
         as the focus of their design.  They may use other stitches to make it interesting,
         but the Rocky Road must remain dominant.
     2. Designers may use their choice of yarn in order to show the stitch differently
     3.  Designs must remain secret until the Judging is final.
     4.  Designers provide a photo of their design without any logos or "tales" of who the
          designer is
     5. Designs must be finalized by March 25th.  Photos are then turned over for judging.
     6. Designs are to follow the "Mother's Day" Theme
     7.  Judges will rank designs based on the following:
            A. Overall design
            B. Use of stitch
            C. Use of color to show stitch
            D. Most creative
     8. Judging results will be given by March 29th.
     9.  All designs will be published in a special edition of 
          Too Yarn Cute Magazine which
          will be available the first week of April.
     10.  The winner of the Battle of the Stitches will receive:
            $50 gift card to Joann's (provided by Crafting Friends Designs)
            Set of Clover hooks (provided by Snappy Tots)
            6mo subscription to Too Yarn Cute Magazine (provided by Too Yarn Cute eMag)
