I stitched this sampler as a tribute to my parents.I put their initials on it, and changed the verse. The border thistles were done in a peachy color, so I changed them to the dusty lavender.This was a fun and relatively quick stitch. The border seemed to take the longest, but even that wasn`t bad. I love the green satin stitch grass, and the colors really suit the linen, which is Zwiegart Driftwood...(I went through a phase of stitching everything on this color). The pattern is from The Abecedarian, called The Mary Elizabeth Corbett Sampler.

This is a lovely sampler. The colours are stunning. I think I prefer the dusty lavender for the border as well.
