I've finished JM Gardner, a super fast, super fun sampler from With thy Needle and Thread. I absolutely loved this sampler when she came out and she was such a joy to stitch! I really should have been doing some stitching for my sampler guild's ongoing project but am so happy that I snuck this little girl in here first. Isn't she pretty??
I've also been doing a little framing and home decorating lately. A few weeks back I framed my Paradise Lost (finally, I've had the frame since Mother's day). I've hung her in the guest room over the headboard that I made from two old shutters. I am thrilled with how this came out! I just bolted the shutters together and then mounted the headboard on the wall using hardware to hang a chalk board or dry erase board (I found the hardware at my local Home Depot). It was super easy and I'm so proud of doing the project myself and so happy with how it all turned out! Now, I just need to make the quilt I'm thinking of for this bed and paint the wall. :D
Thanks for stopping by! Jen
