"Anniversaries of the Heart" Sampler by Blackbird Designs

My sampler, Anniversaries of the Heart, by Blackbird Designs was finally completed in the fall of 2011.  Each house block has a name or initials of someone in my family where their birthday or anniversary occurs in that month.  The last large block in the bottom right records my name, birth date, and home town.  I hope this sampler will be enjoyed for many years to come! 


  1. Oh my goodness Debbie -- this is just beautiful ! And how unique to have the anniversaries of your love ones stitched in. I can see Liz's name in one of the blocks - and Roberts too ! Thanks for sharing - it is really special.


    1. Karen...Debbie won't toot her own horn, but I will. It is even more gorgeous in person. You have got to make it a point to actually see it. A treasure of a lifetime....

  2. This is stunning Debbie. What type of fabric and count did you use? A true heirloom for your family. ~ Sabrina G
