Waiting for the Angels Sampler

Another week....another sampler pattern done. I especially like this one for the verse. I took several elements from antique samplers, the verse, the birds and a few motifs and designed this one. Waiting for the Angels. The verse reads:
    Only waiting till the angels open wide the mystic gate
At whose feet I have lingered weary poor and desolate
Even now I hear their footsteps and their voices far away
If they call me I am waiting only waiting to obey

The smaller verses in the boxes are:
Call up on the angels
heed their voices call

Listen to thy savior
follow submit to all

The stitching program picture never does justice to a I can hardly wait to see this one stitched. I may show the chart in other colors is amazing how it changes the whole look.
I will be sending this off to a model stitcher tomorrow. This is a 16 x 20 inch  (249 x 317 stitch count) sampler on 32ct linen. After the model is stitched the chart will be available. Full cross stitches in my charts. Charted for DMC but I may offer over dyed floss for the chart too.

I will get started on another the time I am done I will have my 23 model stitchers very busy! Oh of the first models I sent out is almost done! I will have it in a few days and show it to you.
Thanks for stopping by. Be sure you have signed up for the Valentine's Day give-away in a previous post. Lots of goodies to be given away.
