The Stitchy Edition

I have finally finished one of my samplers!

I'm thinking that I will make all of them into throw pillows for our foyer (in that big, fancy house that we will someday own, of course...wish you could see me rolling my eyes).  But seriously I would love to make them into throw pillows.  I'm hoping they end up doing a different one for each holiday in addition to each season!

I also started on the Summer Sampler.  So far the only part that has been released is the frame.  I decided this one needed a little bling so I picked up these fun sparkly threads at my LQS ($6 each!, holy cow!!!).  I'm just hoping I don't have to buy more...

That's it for today.  This weekend will be spent basting, quilting and binding the dreaded Wedding Quilt, working on nine (!) custom clutches, and a cutting, and hopefully piecing, a long overdue custom comforter for a very patient friend.

Linking up with TGIFF.
