Finally 'Finished'

Some of you may remember that I stitched The Drawn Threads Sunflower Bellpull back in 2011.  At the time I didn't go on and finish it as a bellpull, however I got the urge to do it a couple of weeks ago.

Here is the completed bellpull:

Last weekend was our village show, I entered several things including Sunflower Bellpull and got second place in the Embroidery and Knitting sections.

Rosie entered the children's crafts again and also got a second prize for her picture of a snake.

Thank you all for your lovely comments on Rosie's jumper, I'm very glad to say she's still delighted with it.
