Last Sunday was my team meeting. The special project that everyone got to make was a 12 x 12 Spring Sampler. I shared the prototype with them before the meeting. I wondered if anyone would change their mind about attending after seeing it. Prototypes aren't pretty. Thankfully, no one backed out at the last minute and they all loved the completed project.
The prototype doesn't look like much, does it? Ready to see the finished sampler?
Voila! The 12 x 12 Spring Sampler. Isn't it gorgeous? I have mine hanging on the wall in my studio. It makes me smile and dream about Spring arriving soon!
