Almost titled this post "sweet Melissa", like the Allman Brothers song...(do you get that a lot Melissa, surely you do)? I am singing it now..."Lord, in his deepest dreams the gypsy flies....with sweet Melissa".....
Anyway, you'd posted on your blog about this sunflower sampler in a magazine you just got from a friend. Since I stitched it all those years ago, I about busted a gut to tell you about it and to show you.
So here it is, as promised! (click on image for eye popping larger version!)
Hey it's FRAMED too, just because that's how I roll, lol! Just kidding. It's one of the first things I ever had framed the right way, right before I went to work at the LNS that framed it. The owner was the best framer ever!
Anyway, guess it was completed in 1995 since that's the date on it. Pretty sure it was framed in 97. It hangs in our hallway, on the other side of the bathroom doorway and it's one of my all time favorites! I remember it contained some over one parts, in the middle of the sunflowers, my very first over one....I also recall that at the time, I didn't care for it but loved the look it gave the flowers.
So now that you've seen it up close and personal, you neeeeed to stitch it, (sweet Melissa) ;)
PS. Hi Leigh! I didn't know you'd found me, how have you been?...you need to email me!
PPS. Thank you all for your thoughts on deleting. I'm a big goofy boob most days but don't think I'll delete it like before (yes Sharon, you have a good memory...)
