Aha, a timely update to CrosStitch! Just as the stitch-swelling spring showers begin to pelt me, I’ve found this fine assortment of rain gear designed by Gaia’s finest creative minds. Have a look at the winners of our Rainy Day contest:

Visit my shop to pick one of these cute items up for yourself! You can also find more new rain gear over at the Jock Strap, so be sure to pay Liam a visit.

Meanwhile, here's a brand new opportunity to showcase your creative powers: the Original Characters contest! Just send me a sketch of your own personally-created character’s signature item. Remember: this has to come from your own creative mind, so don’t submit items based on your favorite anime series, video game, etc. Good luck!
