My name and date...

Sunflower Bellpull as of 1/22/07

I couldn't decide what to put in the personalization section of the sampler. I stitched and restitched it about four times. First I was going to do my initials and last name like Cynthia did, but it wouldn't fit and then I was going to do my first name and last initial, but it still wouldn't fit and then I was going to do the date in smaller numbers, but it looked funny. So I think I'm happy with this. I would've had a lot more done if it weren't for my indecision.

I forgot to share my new stash from the Golden Needle. I'm always on the lookout for Goode Huswife patterns because they are out of print. I found a couple of them and I also got a Shepherd's Bush kit - Love Letters. After seeing Karen V's stitched I knew I had to have it! :)

Hopefully I get a chance to stitch a little more tonight! Write later! :)


  1. I love your sunflower banner! Great start!

  2. I struggled with the same thing this last weekend. Stitched and restitched the personalized section of a project that was otherwise finished. But finally got it. Yours look great and lots of fun stash.

  3. Your sunflower sampler is looking great - I like how you personalized it.

    If there are any specific Goode Huswife's you are looking for, let me know - I run into them from time to time (usually in the sale bins!)

  4. Nice progress on your Sunflower Bellpull Nicole - your personalization works really well.

  5. Your Sunflower Bellpull looks great. I like the way you did your name and the year.

  6. I love the sunflower sampler and your name and date looks great. I have stitched Sheldon Hawks House and it continues to be one of my all time faves. It was so much fun to stitch. I am looking at it right now actually, b/c I hung it in my office. Not that I'm surfing the web during work or anything.... Ann.

  7. Your personalization looks great - I had the same problem with my RR piece. I spent more time messing with my name than anything else! I am glad the ladies were nice to you when you went back. Great stash...I love the SB piece!
