Winner Update: Good morning, friends! Thank you all so much for submitting your wonderful ideas to the cross stitch mini-challenge. My randomly selected winner was Erin (Blue Stocking Bookworm)! She will receive a handmade “Though she be but little, she is fierce” design a la Shakespeare. I’ll post it to Instagram once it’s finished for anyone who wants to see it.
Good morning/afternoon/evening, readathoners! It’s 3am for me, but no matter what time zone you’re in it’s impressive to see you pushing through at Hour 21. Despite being a Dewey’s participant for years, this is my first time hosting a challenge so I’m a touch more excited than I am during a normal Dewey’s… if it’s even possible to ever get more excited. Anyway, let’s have a little giveaway.
The Challenge + The Prize
I’m rewarding you for staying up this long (or coming back after a glorious nap), so this “challenge” is going to be easy. All you need to do is tell me your favorite book, bookish quote, or anything bookish that can be made into a cross stitch pattern, and tell me why you love this book/quote/bookish thing.
The pattern can be something already done (links are cool), or something you just made up. Feel free to draw out exactly what you want or give me color preferences to work with, if relevant. My only requirement is that it’s not anything massive in size. We can further discuss details if you win.

How to Enter
Leave a comment below with your idea and email address so I can contact you if you win. For bonus entries, follow me on Twitter and Instagram and let me know your account name to verify. The giveaway will end at 6am CDT (Central).
Best of luck to everyone, and happy reading!
