We have a Winner

Yesterday I totally forgot to bring the patterns I was considering for my aunt's 60th birthday present to my cousin's house so that she and Sissy could peruse them. Then I remembered that I had gathered them together for you to see!

Separately, I brought them into the study so they could see the choices. Both of them picked the same one, so I am going with it. It also happens to be one of the smaller ones--you all were so right that I did choose patterns that may not be completed in six months. (Peaceful Garden--I'm still going to do it one day!) When my cousin saw the one they picked, she said, "That's it!" even when she had two more to see. (The dude picked this one before I ever asked you all.) My sister showed similar enthusiasm for:

Animal Samplings by Hillside Samplings.

I ordered the fabric and NPI silks today! I have great belief that this will be done and framed in time for her special day.

Though it wasn't my choice ;) this is a design that I really like. You had a winning list of choices!

BTW, it was my MIL who didn't like the colors I chose for Rowen's sampler. ;)

If it had a lobster on it, it would always be my husband's first choice. That's why I just got Bent Creek's Summer Ewe.

Love the Lobstah!

You are right, this is a very do-able project! I hope your aunt loves it!

Indeed the lobster was part of the appeal--my aunt and uncle host a lobsterfest in late July. So I thought that emblem was particularly suitable.

Lovely choice!
