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 sampler is the third in a series of four, which have been designed to honor my Great-Grandmothers.
Included with the pattern is a complete upper and lower case alphabet and number set so that you can customize this sampler to honor the life or death of someone you love. There is also a charted American flag to replace the Danish flag if you prefer... and, if you wish to represent any other country of the world, 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.
