This is a small sample cut off from an embroidery sampler started by my English grandmother. I then finished the sampler on the top half. On the bottom half I added it with things that reminded me of my Persian grandmother and heritage. Chess sets, tea, Turkish Design and the word journey stitched out in Farsi, these all seek to represent the 50/50 Persian English heritage I have.

Both female figured hold a special place in my heart.
