This is Sunflower Sampler by Heart in Hand .. I started this last week .. I had to change the color of the sunflower pedals, my Schneckley was just too brownish, so I'm using Amber instead . I'm stitching this in hand .. sometimes I just like having the fabric in my hands instead of a plastic frame .. kind of a comfy feeling.

Here's the framed anniversary sampler I was working on last month .. I just love this frame! My friends were very surprised and very happy with this gift .. Lisa couldn't believe I remembered her colors and used the varigated blue and the red roses .. it I really enjoyed stitching this for them, even when I was apprehensive about changing colors *smile*


Today was a typical monday from hell at work .. so I think I'll go climb into bed and read for a bit ...

I'm grateful that this monday is in the past ...
