The first photo is from Linda. What a beautiful job she did with stitching this band sampler! And isn't the frame wonderful? It so nicely compliments the embroidery. Linda, I hope you found the perfect place to hang your sampler.
Thank you, Linda and Kat, for sharing photos of your work. I'm sorry that I forgot to post your photos earlier.
It's fun to see these two versions of Adorn Thy Heart together and compare them. By clicking on the words Adorn Thy Heart in the sidebar on the left, you can see two more versions of the same sampler.
In the previous post, I mentioned that it looked like Barbara had stitched an inscription at the bottom of the piece. She just wrote to tell me it reads, "Stitched with love for Lila Elizabeth Arbaugh by Great Aunt Barbara". Then over in the right hand corner she put the year, "2008". Barbara, I know your great niece will cherish this piece even more so with your inscription. Thank you for sharing the additional information about this special gift for a very special person in your life.
