Abigail's Summer Sampler 2010 finished tonight





Abigail's  Summer Sampler

32 count Bo-Peep Pink linen
2 over 2
Crescent Colors fibers

finished and designed by Feathers in the Nest

I had much fun with this sampler!  The colors blend well in our guest bedroom/ studio.
I felt so lucky to find the ball fringe trim last week as it really added to the design.
Abbie has special treats that are like wafers and dipped in pink frosting on the edges. She also likes her other treats as well. She's always, always begging for attention to play so this sampler fits her well!

Hope your Monday went well today.
