Memory Sampler Finished

I have finally finished with the stitching of my Memory Sampler for my mother, who passed away over 2 years ago. The original pattern was from Mid Summer Night designs and featured in a 2008 JCS magazine. I did not care for the whole Sampler, so another stitcher altered the chart and that is how I stitched it. I used 40ct linen and 1 strand of HDF silk. The colors are much more vibrant in person. Here is my finished work





And here is a picture of my mother who inspired me to stitch this.
