Sampler House Exchange

I wanted to post pictures of my exchange piece for the Sampler House exchange on Legacy Embroiderers forum. I chose the house from The Drawn Thread's Sunflower Sampler Bellpull. I love sunflowers and during the exchange my miniature sunflowers were blooming in my garden. Sunflowers just make me smile. My recipient said that she liked it, I was concerned over the finishing of it since I had to stitch it all by hand since my sewing machine is on the fritz. I know that the next piece I make I will do a little differently.

It was a great exchange and we have some very creative ladies who participated in the exchange. This is why I decided to join the Stitching Blogger's exchange board, I had so much fun with it.
Here is the exterior:

Here is the interior:

I hope these pass muster for the Stitching Blogger ladies!!!

Looks like I might need to practice up my finishing skills. Haven't done any small finishes for a while. Looks gorgeous!
