Sunflower update

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:55 pm by knotsincotton

I’m really enjoying stitching these little flower samplers and am sort of sorry that I don’t have a bunch of them to stitch one after the other. 🙂 There are only two more designs like this – Holly&Ivy Sampler and the new Daisy Sampler.  Even though I like the new design, I doubt I’ll buy it as I don’t like the format.  Holly & Ivy already went on my shopping list so you’ll be seeing it on the blog in the not too distant future. Now I’m keeping everything crossed that one day either LHN or CCN will bring out a Pansy Sample.  A girl can dream, can’t she?


The next project in the SAL with my friend in the UK is Valerie Pfeiffer’s Chickadee Coaster set. After that it’s mailart with a Summer theme and I already found some charts for it, marked out the fabby, got the lining fabric and buttons so all I need to do is stitch it! Wish I was this organised with all my projects!!

Since I started blogging and describing my stitching and how I feel about it, I have noticed that I often say that I enjoy stitching this or am having fun stitching that.  That’s the whole point of stitching, isn’t it? To have fun and enjoy seeing a project flow from your needle, otherwise it’s as much fun as eating white-hot coals… 😉 I love seeing other stitchers progress as much as I enjoy seeing my own pieces grow and I think that is something special amongst stitchers – there is no jealousy of another’s work, just inspiration and (let’s not forget) enabling!

    Ah yes …. the enabling. I think I see a need to acquire the Daisy Sampler you wrote about.

    I have the perfect recipient for such a gift.

    Off to go looking…..
