September 11th Tribute Sampler

This little sampler is dedicated to the 1st Anniversary of Sept. 11th and it is realized with different stitches, beads and glass charm.
Mother of pearl stars and stripes, and the blue silk ribbon bow attached with big French knots, are in the first band, depicting the USA national symbolism. The middle band includes a glass heart from Mill Hill, representing our heart, God’s heart and blood of victims, surrounded by a border of red flowers.
The sentence “The Lord will be your everlasting light and your God will be your glory” is the most loving religious sentence I found to remember the victims after one year. People from many Countries and religions died during the attacks and the sentence is suitable for all of them. The last sentence in the blue flower border is my signature and final tribute and it ends with a little heart with the USA flag.
The Sorbello stitch lines are my special Italian touch of love.
