Suggestions, Please!

My Sampler quilt is coming along. This morning I worked on the rest of the signature block. All I need to add now is the year, 2009.

But I have a small problem. I need something to fill in the space on either side of the numbers panel. In this photo, I am trying out a little flower, and a wonky heart, but neither really hits the mark I am looking for.

I need something to fill in the blocks marked with ?? The letters are 3" tall, so it can't be bigger, and whatever it is has to be sorta wonky.

Whatever goes on one side, should go on the other, so hearts, flowers, tiny butterflies...?

Suggestions welcome! Leave a comment.

Thank you!

I like the cat idea. Maybe just a cat's head? I like the stars suggestion too. Before I read the other comments I was thinking butterflies, if you could make them small enough.

What about little trees?

Since you put question marks, how about other puncuation marks?

3" tall!? That's not tall at all... Hmm... Maverick stars? They would be itty-bitty though!
The sampler is beautiful!

i like the idea of punctuation marks - ?!,";:& - goes with the overall font kind of look.
