As I write this, I should be finishing up the binding on this lovely 2016 project. My Instagram friends urged me to finish up the binding so that I could consider it a February finish and that is just the cheering section I need right about now to get this one done!
UPDATE: BINDING DONE [see last photo] !!
Sometimes I absolutely love binding and sometimes... well sometimes not so much [usually depending on what else I have to do at the same time]!
These annual samplers have surely become my favorite projects of all time. The one from 2015 was based a little bit more around a sherbet palette with navy as the darkest element [I will share some comparison photos in a few days]. This sampler from 2016 went a bit more retro and was based around my Farmhouse and Strawberry Fields collections and used a chalkboard black as the "grounding color" of the grouping. That might be one of my favorite elements this time around.
I chose the black gingham rose as the binding and I am just a little smitten with how it all turned out. Enjoy....
When we get a bit of warm weather and dry grass enough for a full photo shoot, I will include some more photos of the entire project!
If you joined us for this year long project, I really hope you are nearing completion on yours too. Would love to see your finished pics on Instagram!!
