Primitive Cross Stitch Sampler

I finished up another little sampler in my Inspiration Sampler Series of Counted Cross Stitch patterns:

Again, the pattern suggests Sampler Threads from The Gentle Art but I also included the DMC equivalents. 

I am so much enjoying the designing process again!  I always loved old looking samplers and I enjoy like bible verses!
