on Hannah Lovina Joslin by Blackbird Designs. I am loving this sampler, I just wish it wasn't taking me so long to get it stitched. But I am making progress! I am honoring my maternal grandmother whose name you see above and the year of her birth. It thrills me to no end to see her name on my work and this is one of the many things I love about Blackbird Designs. They really encourage you to honor your various family members. In fact, I am inspired to stitch more samplers and honor two of my great grandmother's. They will most likely be a Blackbird Design, it's just a matter of deciding which one. When I get this one finished, I will tell you more about my grandmother. I miss her still, I was only blessed with 18 short years...but I am sure happy to have known her.
I also have been in the patriotic mood especially with Memorial Day recently, and Independence Day coming up. So I have been working on some patriotic designs. Hopefully, I will get one finished by this Friday. We shall see. I must run, thanks for all your sweet comments on my last finish and pictures.
