This listing is for a CROSS STITCH PATTERN, not for the finished sampler.
I, like many of you, have long been fascinated with samplers that depict Adam and Eve. Wanting to design one of my own that gives a nod to those created in the past, I also wanted a fresh, whimsical version that wouldn’t be just another look-alike.
Suddenly my Adam and Eve are teensy little fairy-people living in a flower bed! And that is often how my designs go; the idea is mine, but I soon lose control of the direction, as the sampler takes on a life of its own.
The quote was taken from a middle-of-the-19th-century sampler, and reads: Still let Thy grace my life direct From evil guard my way And in temptations Fatal path Permit me not to Stray
