This listing is for a CROSS STITCH PATTERN, not for the finished sampler.
My inspiration for this design was a wonderfully naïve sampler, which I barely missed winning in an online auction. Not being the owner, I was unable in good conscience to reproduce it exactly, but instead created a new interpretation, using the same sweet quote, but a different arrangement of the altered elements, and a few additions of my own. My new version still retains a similar overall appearance, as if it were stitched by a relative or classmate of the original.
I used my maiden initials to mark the model, and the year in my childhood that we moved away from a favorite home. You may stitch it to commemorate a child moving on to college, or your own moving on to adulthood. Or simply mark it with the current year and your initials. However you choose to make it, I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do.
