The Flowers of One Garden

I'm getting ready to release "The Flowers of One Garden" which has a lot of elements I love in samplers, a mermaid, Adam and Eve and a large red house. The verse reads "We are the leaves of one branch, the drops of one sea. the flowers of one garden". I released (in pastel colors) the very top part of the this sampler with Adam and Eve earlier this year. I decided to extend it to make a very large piece that looks totally different from the earlier design. It's stitched on 36 count Meadow Rue from Lakeside Linens and is 315 stitches wide by 385 stitches high and measures approximately 17 1/2 inches by 21 1/2 inches. She's a big girl! I used all Gentle Arts Sampler threads with the exception of the red and that is "Bandana" from Crescent Colours.
