FQGS #6 July 2023 Top Shelf Picks Recognition Announcement and DT Call

  Top Shelf Picks Announcement for FQGS Theme #6

 Whoa! Theme #6 for FarmQuest General Store challenge blog is no longer accepting deliveries of crafted projects! :)

At 1:00am CT/Chicago or 7 am UK times on August 5, FQGS closed for business for challenge #5. We are excited to be having good participation for being a new challenge blog. Please help us grow! Let your craft blogging friends know about this fun blog!

Theme #1 had 10 entries!! #2 had 27. #3 had 16 entries. #4 had 18 entries! #5 had 19 entries! #6 had 12 entries! (average is 17)

 I'm loving the variety and glad our FQGS participants are embracing the broadness of rural topics we want to see!

Thank you to all the wonderfully talented artisans who took time to create and deliver projects to the store!


Congratulations to these 3 Top Shelf Picks: Brandi, Lisa J, and Janet!!!

In order of reverse entry:

#10 = Janet/Sweetpea (highland cow; holly)

#6 = Lisa J. (a yeti, hiker, and woods)

#1 = Brandi H. (wagon, wood paneling, plaid, and more)

(sorry; can't share her webpage photo but use the IG link to get to this entry)

The variety of country/outdoors/farm/ranch kind of topics was amazing! It was a very difficult time of decision-making selecting only 3 entries. Thanks for making it tough.


Ya'll come back now! Stay awhile at the country store!

The general store will open again at 12am CT/Chicago or 6am UK on August 7th. (new times)

From the gifted tippy-top shelf treasures,

FQGS DT members NanaConnie, Janis, Kel and owner Becca S
