A Tribute to Mother's Day!

I Hope you are all having a great day, Mothers or not!! It is so beautiful up here,  warm and sunny an absolutely perfect day!! Thanks for taking time to look at my blog ,I so appreciate it !  Today, I am showing a few of my samplers that I have done to honor people in my family.  I hope you enjoy seeing them. 


This sampler is "Margaret Harris" a Blackbird Design from the book Honeysuckle Manor. I put the names and birth dates of my Mother and my Maternal Grandmother on this sampler.  They were born in the same city so that was easy. I have so many wonderful memories of them both!



 Mom is Merna Kennedy and Grandma is Anna Lindquist. 


 I did this sampler a few years ago.  It is called "Emblem of Love."  It is by Ellen Chester at With My Needle.  (She has a great blog!!) I did this to celebrate our 32nd anniversary.  It has the initials of all our children and grandchildren stitched in the design. (We have 4 J's so that helped to give me room!)


This final one commemorates the wedding of  the SBA's Grandparents. It is"For Those Recorded Here" by Blackbird Designs. It is part of the Sarah Jane booklet.I never met his Grandmother who he called Boo.  But I have heard many stories about her.  She must have been a very special woman.

  2. All three designs are so pretty Barb. And I really like the way you've personalized them - turning them into genealogical family heirlooms!
