A Family Sampler

What a special journey it has been to make a memory piece commemorating my wonderful, loving parents and siblings. Each one of us was created so uniquely and together we form a beautiful tapestry full of vibrant personalities and individual talents.

For the three of us still remaining it is hard to fathom that not only our parents but a brother and sister have passed. They are always in our hearts and thoughts until we meet again.

'I Thee Wed' by Blackbird Designs (adapted for my family)
stitched 1/1 on 25 ct Ivory Lugana with a variety of different flosses
started July 1, 2010 - completed July 27, 2010

With love to six very special people,
from your youngest daughter and baby sister Margaret
