When I was a llittle girl, I absolutely loved daisies, just as much as I still do today. In fact, one summer, when I was about 8 years old, I decided that, because they grew in such abundance in the fields around our home, that I would dig up great bunches of the them and go door to door to sell them. I put the plants into my little red wagon and knocked on all of the doors of the houses in our neighborhood, asking people if they would be interested in purchasing one of my beautiful little daisy plants for only 10 cents a plant. Imagine how thrilled I was when, by days' end, I had sold all of my plants and went home with $2.00, quite a lot of money for an eight year old at that time.
Over the weekend, making some color changes to my own choice of threads, I finally completed my "Jenny Bean Pin Tuffet". I'm not terribly fond of a lot of black in my stitching projects, so I chose more golden and brown hues, more appealing to my choice of color palettes. I need to find some cute Puntini-Puntini pins to go with it.
I am thinking of adding some twisted cording around the edges of the tuffet box. It was a bit of a challenge gathering the linen up in two different rows underneath to fit over the matboard and then gluing it into place in the round box.
When I purchased "Jenny Bean's Pin Tuffet", I also purchased "Jenny Bean's Humble Servant Sampler", and it is calling to me to be stitched very soon! We'll see.... My husband, Bruce also has given me a lovely sampler with accompanying linen and fibers for my birthday, so I haven't quite made up my mind which one will be my first choice. Oh, such difficult decisions.....
