Adding to my Dream

For years my decorating dream has been to have a home with piles of quilts on the beds and oodles of stitched samplers adorning every wall. Just the thought of picturing this in my mind makes me go weak in the knees! With my last framed pieces, I began to see part of this dream taking shape. And now I have another framed piece to hang! Thankful Wheeler came home to stay yesterday!



Look at the detail on this frame. It has a very old, wood eaten look to eat. Just perfect for this piece!



I am working on Independent Mind right now. I finished up the divider and I am loving stitching on it now! I will have a progress photo next post for you all to see.

Thanks so much for stopping by to see me! Your comments always mean so much to me! Once again, have a wonderful Easter weekend!

Happy Easter Sherry, Have been away so am now catching up. Love the back wall where you sit and stitch. I am in agreement about quilts on the bed or stacked in a chest and samplers on the wall.

I love your Thankful Wheeler, and the frame is just right! We have similar ambitions--I envision a house full of quilts and samplers too but at the moment it's more legos and stuffed animals, lol. Have a great holiday!

Thankful Wheeler looks gorgeous in this frame. Another tsep towards your sampler walls is done. I have also admired your CHS WIP that you show in your last post. All CHS pieces are becoming little treasures now that she is closing down her business.

Sherry, that is a perfect choice for Thankful! I love it. You are describing my dream house vision. Do you get Country Sampler magazine? My mom sends it over here and there and I drool all over it. Some people count sheep to fall asleep... I have a slide show in my head that shows what I want for each room. ;)
