A few days ago I picked up Special Delivery by Black Bird Designs again and this morning I finally finished stitching it. It still needs finally finishing, but I am not sure yet what to use this sampler for.
It was really difficult for me to decide which name to stitch under the sampler. First I thought to stitch my own, but I only have one first name and a birth year of 1978 is not as impressive. So I had to come up with a different solution. At the end I decided to use my grandmother's maiden name Maria Anna Mekers and her birthday. After all, it was her (and my Aunt Anny) who taught me how to cross stitch.
Here are some more close ups:
