Rounding out her travels.

Here is Dr. Vonthreadmore's commentary on the final entries in her Globetrotter Giveaway:

"These postcards are from my time in West Valley City, Utah. There were many sights to see, and Beelizabeth kindly let me travel with her family to Yellowstone. Satisfactory postcards that properly showed the true nature of the inspirational sights were not to be found, and Dear Beelizabeth kindly helped me create these. She appreciates my work. See the tatted heart we added? That thread is from one of my first batches of thread!"

"This card below was sent upon my visit with Tattin Kat, and more of our adventures can be found on her blog"

"Transportation was a nightmare in the more remote locations I visited. I found such wonderful natural things to use in my dyes, but had such a hard time in getting them properly shipped."

"in India, I met several wonderful creatures. This Elephant agreed to help by carrying several of my baskets to the border. He was very polite, and he worked for peanuts!"

"I had a splendid time in Singapore with Umintsuru. The architecture was delightful with colors abounding."

"One of my final stops on the return trip was again at Fox's. The evening lighted sky was so enchanting, I had to go back for another look!"

"So many of you have been so good to me in my journeys this summer, and I am eternally grateful. The world will be a better place because of the kindness you have shown.... there will be beautiful thread to come! (many of you sent packets of many cards, I have chosen my favorites from those selections to post, but all cards are valid as entries. Deliberations are in the works!)"

Currently, the Dr. and I are hemming and hawing over which to choose as the winners. So many inspiring things made it into my mailbox, that they all will live in a wonderful inspiration file (something that I have been meaning to start for a long time anyway!) to keep us dreaming up new colors of hand dyed thread. Final selections of the winners will be posted Friday, with the threads to be dyed this fall.

Here are the some of the final entries from the Globetrotter giveaway contest!

I feel absolutely honored to see the postcards the good Doctor put together while traveling with me appear on your website. I hope you take the hint- contest or not- that I'd love to be able to get some more of that color combination!

Wow, I had no idea a world tour could be so beautiful and inspiring! (Sometime I just don't get it without visuals...hee, hee.)

Good luck to all contestants!
