Today I have finished a little sampler "My Heart Is True" by Gail Bussi, Kreinik. It is from "Remember The Ladies" series.
This phrase was borrowed by the designer from Abigail Adams' letter to her husband as the men were busy drafting the new constitution. The phrase also reminds us of the needleworkers of our past. We remember the ladies who stitched before us, from young girls stitching samplers as lessons to ladies making linen for their homes and families.
Such a small sampler and so meaningful.... You can easily understand why I chose the design in February.
This is my first work in silk (Silk Mori), and for the first time I made the whole work one over one. The colors are so soft here and I also like the sheen of the silk, it was pleasure to stitch the sampler. Have a look at the pictures:
Tomorrow I will try to make it into a pin cushion or something else.
