Please Help Me Choose!

I'm participating in a bird-themed exchange in a few weeks, and find that I have so many cute charts that would be appropriate. Thus, I'm having the hardest time choosing what to stitch. Will you help me choose?

I have 3 Prairie Schooler options and one from Bent Creek. The third picture is an option because I know my partner loves cats.

OPTION 1, Praire Schooler Purple Martins (Book 24):


OPTION 2, PS Hummingbirds:

OPTION 3, PS Bird and Cat (Book 94):

OPTION 4, Bent Creek, "One Bird Having Some Friends Over":

Please comment and tell me which you like best!

Hi Rachel,
I vote for the Purple Martins one mainly because I had stitched this for my Dad several years ago and made a pillow out of it. We had a birdhouse esp for purple martins when I was growing up so it was ideal for him. Happy voting - they are all great!

I would have to vote for the BC one. I stitched this one up a few years ago and it's so cute!

Hi Rachel, firstly, congrats on finishing your lovely sampler, the colours in it are so pretty. For your exchange, I vote for the Hummingbird one, this really caught my eye :) enjoy the rest of your week.

I think I'm the only one, but I like #3! :)

To answer your question on my blog. I did the header by going to this site...

On there they have a tool for making blog headers. I then edited my blogger to template to add the picture. I moved the lettering down some. That I had to do under the html. Hope this helps! I love your blog template and header - it's so pretty! :)

They are all gorgeous but I love the first one the most :-).

Sharon said...

I love the purple Martins! Of course any you choose from these would be great.

Nancy said...

Sounds like a fun exchange Rachel. I vote for either of the first two from Prairie Schooler. I love that leaflet!

So hard to pick just one as they are all so great. I'd say if the person is a cat lover as well, then #3 would be the one I would stitch.

piko said...

It's difficult to choose one though...I Love option 1!:)

It's a toss up for me between #1 and #4. Perhaps your exchange partner can give you a hint... LOL

Sandra said...

Option #3 without a doubt for me, it is gorgeous.

Isabelle said...

Tough choice! I like the Bent Creek best though, it just cracks me up! :)

Hazel said...

I like the first one and the second one comes a close second. xx

Wendy said...

I vote for #1 (but they are all great)

Cheryl said...

I like the hummingbird one the most, but they are all lovely! Good luck with your decision

Barbara said...

PS Bird and Cat has my vote, though they are all really wonderful charts. :)

DaisyGirl said...

I like the Bird and Cat one, but Bent Creek's is great too. Choose the one you think your partner might like.

Dear Rachel,
I choose the last one : Bent creeks' because it is a funny one. In fact I did not know this chart, it is nice.
Well, it is up to you to made your decision

I adored the second one Rachel, but if your partner is partial to cats, the cat one might be perfect.

They are all lovely, Rachel... but I love, love, love *One Bird Having Some Friends Over* and it is OOP and I can't find it anywhere... So, it gets my vote, hands down! :-)

Jeanne said...

I have to say I love the Hummingbirds. The colors are just lovely.

Any choice that you make will be a good choice. Sometimes the hardest choice to make is between all good ones! I would go for the third choice with the bird and cat being that the one receiving it likes cats and it includes the bird theme also. I like to make a gift with the person that is to receive it in mind and knowing that it would make her happy.

Rachel,
I think the Purple Martins is so pretty.

Renee said...

All are different but so cute. The nicest will be this one made with your love, what it may be. Happy week end and blessed summer to you both.

Michelle said...

I like the purple martins and the hummingbird - but all four are adorable!

Rachel S said...

Option 4 is really adorable!

Carol said...

Ooops - I am late, but I like option 2 the best!

lena-lou said...

I know I am very late but I like the Hummingbird then I like 3 and 4 all are nice though and will be great for your exchange :)

Cathy said...

I'm voting for #1 or #2, but to be honest, I'd be happy to receive any one of them. I'm sure your exchange partner would feel the same way!
