Cross stitch pattern from Erica Michaels.
Note from designer: This is a stunning adaptation of a 1764 English sampler in my collection. A prayer of thanksgiving centers the faithful reproduction of the floral border patterns and other original motifs, changed up with an autumnal color palette - perfect for the harvest season.
"May the abundance of this table never fail and never be less, thanks to the blessings of God, who has fed us and satisfied our needs. To Him be the glory forever. In peace let us eat this food which the Lord hath provided for us. Blessed be the Lord in his gifts. Amen"
