Well it seems that now we have named and shamed our worst/best/ugliest cushion entrants, everyone wants in on the voting! We are literally blown away by the enthusiasm for voting this early in the piece. So what if there are a few well-orchestrated campaigns amongst friends. (There are definite advantages to working in a certain government department!) The rest of you know what to do...Click here to see the finalists and vote for your friend!
This has been an amazing competition to run in all sorts of ways, and to all of you who entered, I truly want to say a huge thank you for entering in to the spirit of things and for not taking yourselves, or us, too seriously. You see we're not trying to be style arbiters, nor are we laughing at anyone, and for those who thought we were, or who " would not have an ugly cushion in my house", or who took offence, I'm sorry, but you took us and the competition in totally the wrong way. We just want to give away some beautiful, gorgeous new Designers Guild cushions, and everyone who entered, obviously understands!
I haven't voted yet! Is it OK if I admit that I actually quite like No.2, in a retro, Elle Deco kind of way? Whereas No. 8! I'm sorry, but that never had style - ever! And, in Ruth Chucky the Clown's defence, we understand that she has tried to get rid of this cushion, desperately leaving it behind in South Africa, but lo and behold, it arrived in the mail. They are all deserving winners, and it was hard to narrow it down to just 10, but it's not up to me. Vote for your favourite, and you could win a beautiful new Designers Guild wallet for your trouble. Just reading all the comments is keeping us well entertained!
I've never sent virtual flowers before, but Millie, these are for you. Bright, happy, cheerful daisies! Get well! MOTH will be very entertaining, but we want you back soon!
