I decided to do a towel topper and a napkins rings (top left hand corner of the pic.) for my sister inlaw. Her kitchen is decorated in sun flowers. I hope she like these. I really enjoyed the challenge.

Now that's very clever. What a great way to use the design. Are these pictures of your kitchen? It reminds me of my grandmothers kitchen...the glass doors and the vertical panels of wood...copper knobs. Great flashback!

Thank you, it is my kitchen. We bought an old victorian house 4 years ago and are redoing it old again. We love flea markets and garage sales. We try not to buy new but we did have to buy the taps and the nobs new. Thank you for asking :)

It is already interesting seeing just how each person had used the same design and each produced something so different. I like your ideas, well done

thank you, for the napkin ring i hooped tear way stabilizer,skipped the first two colors(greens), place yellow felt inside the hoop, sewed flower outline, place yellow material on, sewed outline again, stop, trimed around the outside and inside of the flower, then sewed the rest of the design out. It sewed the insied of the flower onto the stabilizer but i just tore the out when it was done.Then i cut around the flower and tore out the centre hole , done. I did the towel the same way but i sewed the green leaves.Hope this helps.
