This listing is for a CROSS STITCH PATTERN, not for the finished sampler.
As I have progressed in years, the stories of my ancestors have grown increasingly of interest to me. And most especially of the women that have gone before me, living their lives, caring for their children, making their piece of the world softer and more beautiful in small or large ways.
This is the final sampler in a series of four, which have been designed to honor my Great-Grandmothers.
Because this is an alphabet sampler, you will be able to easily customize it to honor the life or death of someone you love. If you wish to represent any country of the world, other than the already included American flag, I will chart it for you and add to your sampler pack by request.
There is also an instruction sheet telling you my method of inserting a photograph into the finished sampler.
