- Dark Blue = represents knowledge and integrity
- True Blue = represents someone loyal and faithful.
loy·al·ty = faithfulness to commitments or obligations
faith·ful = True to one's word, promises, vows, etc. Reliable, trusted, or believed.
in·teg·ri·ty = Adherence to moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character; honesty.
knowl·edge = Learning; erudition: teachers of great knowledge.
The next step was to look at how these words could be worked into a stitch sampler. Hexagons have been noted for their resemblance to the blue words faithful and loyalty..The reasoning behind this is the well know "Grandmothers Flower Motive" made from hexagons. Grandmothers and Mothers are faithful, reliable and loyal, always upholding integrity and honesty and teachers of great knowledge.. Then there are the old blue transfers. They have stood the test of time, been around for ever it seems, used by our mothers and grandmothers alike, and now, today, we are turning to them, to be used in our embroidery. Again loyal - faithful - learning and integrity.
So documenting my findings into my ledger has continued. Stitched samplers and snippet cloth have been worked, using lace and old shirts from family members to record and keep their memory close by.
