Materials: Weeks Dye Works Dove 30 count over dyed linen, Over dyed threads from The Gentle Art
The inspiration for this mourning sampler was a saying on a piece of Victorian mourning jewelry. The saying touched me as I thought about family members and friends I have lost over the years. This sampler is the result of that inspiration.
