#157   Mothers and Daughters Sampler
(...or Mothers / Fathers and Children or Sons etc.)

“A special bond that spans the years Through laughter, worry, smiles and tears,
A sense of trust that can’t be broken A depth of love at times unspoken,
A lifelong friendship built on sharing, Hugs and kisses, warmth and caring...”

An antique looking Mother - Daughter Sampler makes a wonderful birthday or other family occasion gift.  Elegant and timeless, yet perfect for modern decor, this is a celebration sampler that both mothers and daughters will want to display in their home with joy. Love between mothers and daughters is the inspiration for this sampler, but the verse is appropriate for parents and children or mothers and sons, or fathers and sons, so I’ve included a more general alphabet section to replace the section pictured on the model. Just replace that section and this sampler is appropriate for paretns, mothers or grandparents and sons daughters or children, or anyone with whom you have had a long friendship.

In this sampler you find bands of specialty stitches, some flowers, and snowy white Hardanger lace. At the top you’ll stitch a carnation in a basket, a symbol of love. Below is a panel of lace, and then the capital letters of an alphabet. Some delicate specialty stitches and a lovely Hardanger heart, symbolic of the love for one another. At bottom is a special panel of Hardanger lace. This has been a labour of love to honour my two daughters, so I hope you’ll love it as much as I do! Personalize as you wish, with the smaller alphabet. (or look online in my free patterns) Stitch this beautiful sampler for a very special mother or child, a new baby, a good friend, a birthday present, or just for you, to honour your own mother! - Thea
