"Stitch this gorgeous antique looking Sampler for your next Wedding or other special celebration! Elegant and timeless, yet full of modern touches, this is a celebration sampler that anyone would want to display in their home with joy. Love is the inspiration for this Sampler, and I used only a portion of the famous quote from the bible as there are so many different versions. In this sampler you find bands of specialty stitches, some flowers, and snowy white Hardanger lace, as well as an alphabet or two for personalizing. At the top you'll find a Bargello Heart blooming out of a pineapple vase, a symbol of hospitality and generosity. Below a panel of lace, and then the capital letters of the alphabet used below. Some delicate specialty stitches and a lovely band of heart flowers, symbolic of our love for one another. A special frame with names follows. If your recipient's names are too long, just add a 'repeat' of the border to accomodate another line of lettering. Then some more panels, including more heart flowers echoed all through this sampler. Finally at the bottom is a special panel of lace, which even includes a heart shape picked out in partial greek crosses. This has been a labour of love for me so I hope you’ll love it as much as I do.. Personalize with the enclosed alphabet to stitch this beautiful sampler for a very special couple about to get married, or for a new baby, a birthday person, a recent proud graduate, or for yourself as an anniversary sampler!"
