hmmm--what to stitch

The state fair has a contest for designs that are 's' and I need some help choosing an s subject. It can't be something that the viewer would have to use difficult logic to see the s. I want to steer away from doing ships or seashore, because there are classes for those at the fair. So what should I stitch? It can't be something that will take months to stitch, because, as you know, I don't have patience for big projects and the fair is 9 months from now, not to mention, I do have to work, eat, sleep, MOVE households, and work on other projects in this 9 month period. So what do I stitch?

I am liking sheep for some reason. And snowmen . . .

Shamrocks! I bet you could find an awesome celtic design that would work.

Scissors, sailboats, scrimshaw, sea lions (seals), sand dollars, snakes, Scorpio, September, schnauzers, school, seeds (seed packets), silhouette.

I'll stop now. I can't help it. I was an english major.

Santa, Snowmen, Snowflakes, Strawberries, Tall Sundae or Sandwhich, Sundae Sampler.

How about something from Country Cottage or Little House Needleworks, they have some nice patterns that work up fairly quickly.

A. Fox Originals has a nice snowflake design called Let It Snow.

Good Luck in your search and I will be sure to check back and see what you decided :)
