The Finished Sampler

I finally finished it! After almost a year of working on this little guy I finally finished, framed and hung it yesterday.
A close up. A lot of the squares represent members of our family, things we have done or like to do. Some are just cute. There is a girl reading for Brittany, also an angel to remember her Nutcracker dance. A rocket and a robot for Matthew. A train and a car for Josh. Squares to remember Family adventures; a hot air balloon because we love the balloon festival, tiny little man fishing , an airplane for our trip to Florida, Oma and Opa's house in the winter and my parent's little dog Webster. It makes me happy to look at it.

It is hanging in the bathroom (we have towels, really we do-it is laundry day)
The painted Storybook girls are in there too. Funny, now that bathroom is one of my favorite rooms in the house.
