Adorn Thy Heart by Linda and Kat

Today, as I was going through things, I came across two versions of Adorn Thy Heart which I completely forgot to show you earlier.

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.

The next photo is from Kat Zak of Americus, Georgia. Kat left off the sampler verse and turned her piece into a beautiful wedding sampler for her daughter and son-in-law. Kat, I hope they're enjoying their sampler and have it hanging in a place of honor. (My son and daughter-in-law hung theirs in the living room for all to see.)

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.

Adorn thy Heart is a great sampler and is on my 'to do' list. I'd like to turn mine into a needleroll when I get it done.
