A Woman's Heart sampler inspired by The Titanic

I finally got my thoughts to graph about the verse of the "old" Rose in the movie, The Titanic. I can't count how many times I saw this movie when it came out the first time and then in April had the opportunity to see it in 3D which was really good. Ever since the second week in April when we saw this, I've had it on my mind to create a sampler with this verse.

At the end of the movie, this verse stuck with me and as the end approached and the old Rose threw her blue locket in the ocean, she finally made peace. Yep, Jack Dawson.

So, in memory of the Titanic, I tried to capture this verse which can be applied to almost every woman in some way. The initals are for Jack Dawson and Rose Dawson, although her name was not Dawson, she felt it to be at the end due to their true love.
The key is for the heart as Jack certainly had the key to her heart and vice versa.
The cross for the people who died, the many people on the ship.
The word Heart is shaded in with Shaker White or any off white color on vintage fab.

You should be able to click on the image to print a personal copy to stitch. Please do not sell, or reproduce the sampler except by needle and thread after you have made a copy. Thank you so much!

No, there wouldn't be, would there? And I've never spoken of him until now... Not to anyone... Not even your grandfather... A woman's heart is a deep ocean of secrets. But now you know there was a man named Jack Dawson and that he saved me... in every way that a person can be saved. I don't even have a picture of him. He exists now... only in my memory

  3. Thank you soooo much. I cannot count the number of times I have seen this with my daughter (only because no one else would go with her you understand! ) We found the 3D version much more enjoyable too.
