Traditional Nursery Rhymes - 2018

The competition theme for 2018 was Traditional Nursery Rhymes. It was very kindly judged by Ginnie and Nickie from Five Valley Bears who had a very difficult job deciding on the winning entries.

Scroll down the page to see the entries and click on an individual photo to learn a little more about it.

It was good to see such a range of nursery rhymes being interpreted in a variety of stitching techniques.
